You know how everyone has guilty pleasures? I'm about to reveal mine today with you all. I have been sucked into the allure of the 50's through the horrible tv sitcom, Pan Am. It's bad, my 70+ mother in law watches it, so I started watching it and the cheesy plot makes me cringe, but the pencil skirts and pristine outfits have won my heart. I don't agree with majority of social ethos nor the domestication of women in the 50's, but I really do love the femininity of that era. It's such a contradiction! I'm battling with it internally lol! The show however wants to depict a dawn of the new woman, the Pan Am stewardess which travels the world and doesn't have to live in the confounds of what a woman was meant to traditionally do (housewife, mother, etc. etc.)....so I guess it's ok then for me to watch (that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it).
I won't lie to you all, even if it's embarrassing as hell, but a current fashion (fashion rebirth more like it) that I like is the 50's/60's prime and proper tailored clothes and fashions. The look I put together is not all necessary from this era, but I felt it all tied in together to create a modern spin on the quintessential female from the 50's. I am also enjoying blues and nudes as you shall see.
I hope you enjoy!
What style has you interested this upcoming season??
