Since my computer is finally failing me (the “b” on the old keyboard — which rarely works and thus I have a usb plugin keyboard now– gets stuck, the shell is falling apart, it wouldn’t turn on this morning and got stuck on the “acer” welcome screen for five minutes) and Mr. Owl and I participated in the 72 hour film competition this weekend so I have no outfit pictures, I thought instead I’d share with you my newly discovered love for 1940′s fashion.
I this is the era of fashion that I definitely love the most. Of course, I also love the 50′s, but there’s something a little more appealing to me about the softer lines of the 40′s, the use of more floral dresses, a little less poofy and a little more flowing.
I’ve been trolling the web lately for style inspiration pictures, and the ones I’ve found, I adore. I definitely want to incorporate the 1940′s feel into my wardrobe as fall comes around! I’ll need to find a few good blouses– my skirt collection is nice and full now (34 skirts. Enough for now, yes? Mostly, anyway…), but I don’t have many blouses. Seriously. I need more of them.
Oh, yes. Love.
I think the 40′s look is something I’ll be aspiring towards now. It should be fairly easy once I’ve found a few workable tops, since I’ve got a plethora of skirts that already lean towards these lines and fabrics. I’ve got enough scarves to incorporate as well, and with practice I think the hairstyle– which I have found is the easiest way to give yourself a certain look– should be pretty easy to mimic.
And it will be perfect for fall, with the longer sleeves and heavier fabrics. I can’t wait!
I want everything.
What is your favorite era of fashion?
I hope you all have a beautiful Monday!
