Fifties Girl

17.2.15


If there's one era that I adored completely, that would be from the 20's to the 50's. While that's not exactly one particular era, since each decade had their own ground breaking moments, I love so many elements from each of those decades and I really wish we dressed more like those days. But in a way, we still do, just a tiny bit. Like from the 20's and 30's we've picked the whole flapper trend and after The Great Gatsby, it's a regular party theme as well. Similarly we have the midi trend from those years, which suddenly made a comeback and which I personally love to death (even more than the mini and the maxi). Then from the 40's we have the body-con and structured dresses as well as the floaty chiffon empire dresses and lastly from the 50's we have one of my favourites, the full circular skirts and dresses, which again I absolutely love to wear!
In this particular post I channeled my inner fifties girl. I wore a monochrome polka dotted dress that featured two different sizes of dots, separated by stripes. While I usually prefer such outfits in a midi or tea-length style, this one just ended at my knees. I kept the look extremely simple, and my watch was the only piece of jewelry on me. As for my accessories, I didn't shy away from colours and added a colour blocked bag and a pair of coral heels. Borrowing a small element from my favourite starlet - Dita Von Tesse, who plays old school Hollywood and vintage glam like no other, I wore my racer back lace bralet, so that a hint of lace showed from the cut-outs at the back of a dress and create a cute "peek-a-boo" effect.
