While I spend a lot of my life in relaxed 70s-style jeans or little sixties-style minidresses, it’s nice sometimes to dress like a grown up! And 1940s fashion is perfect for that. There’s something very elegant about it which makes you want to do your hair nicely and put some makeup on!
I was lent this lovely vintage 1940s silk dress by Revival Vintage and as soon as I put it on I felt like it deserved some effort. I teamed with my new winter coat (faux fur of course) from Dorothy Perkins and a pretty 1950s hat from Style Me Betty. It’s a pretty eclectic combination but I loved wearing it, now I just need somewhere to wear such an elegant outfit. Anyone getting married?
