I just recently saw the movie - "The help" and whilst I wont go into how moving, motivational and an all great story it was. I do want to emphasise how amazing the fashion is!
I was thinking about this after the movie and goodness, all the dresses or clothing that I love wearing is really based in this 1950's fashion. So, I have decided to just go with it rather than fight it.
I have at least 6 outfits already that I would consider to be 50's inspired and they are all from either Cue or Review. I realise why I love this particular fashion, it accentuates my waist which is my smallest part and then they poof out (yes, that is the technical term) over my backside and thighs! How could I not love a dress that fits my figure so well?
Ignore the fact that I am carrying a gorgeous small child in this picture, this is to highlight the dress and this is the best picture I have of this dress! I have a very similar dress in black, and another one in black with white polka dots (one of my favourites!).
Ok, so the photograph isnt ideal, but the polka dots and puffyness make it quite 50's style. I wish I had fixed my shirt in this pic, I am an untucked mess. I have to say, I am still trying to work out my "style" per say, so I love when I make discoveries in my own wardrobe
