To start with, this is not a sewing post,sorry, it is a fashion one. In the last few months I have started to love fourties-fifties style things. I love the cinched waists. The style is so flattering. I love the red lips, nails and wearing pearls and how the look is so put together. They all looked so ladylike. Unfortunately I can't dress like this every day, there is no point in doing my hair when I have to cover it in a hat at work. But I can break it all out in the weekend, yeehah!! All of the clothes in this post were bought new, but usually when I do my fifties look, I would wear a full skirt I bought in an opportunity shop. Op shops are also a great place to get cheap belts, and hand bags for this look. To complete the look you need a fitted top and a belt to define the waist, a skirt, preferably full, and then you just need pearls, red lipstick, winged eyes and cute kitten heels( I know I am wearing boots, but it is getting cold). Oh of course, and the best accessory, a handsome man to hold your handbag, thanks D.
