This is not what I wore today!! But it is however the beautiful 1950’s sundress I mentioned a few posts ago. It is in beautiful condition, except maybe for the zip which I’ll need to replace at some point.
I think if I had to choose an era to dress from it would most definitely be the 1940’s to 1950’s. I love round toed heels with t-bars, silk neck scarves and the single black lined eyes of the time. Its cute, feminine and chic and something which I think will always exude a little class.
However, I think I’m too much of a spaz when it comes to clothes, how I’m feeling and what I’m going to wear the next day to put myself completely in just one box. I do respect those that stick hard and fast to their look but I feel like I’d get bored easily and sometimes I just want to throw on a t-shirt and some jeans and blob about the place (hardly very 40’s-50’s chic). A lot of the time I can’t really be bothered/really don’t have the time in the morning (no matter how much I’d like to) to get on the full get up and I don’t want to look silly/theatrical in what I’m wearing either, it must be functional. So I like to think I’m modernizing the look somewhat by adding touches of those years to my everyday outfits whether it be the hair, make up or a finishing touch like a scarf or round toed heel.
