As the weather here in the UK finally turns to what it ought to be like in October, out come the warm woollies and this is one of my favourites. I picked it up at a flea market but it's a gorgeous bit of lambswool from good old M&S. (I've added the bow diamante brooch for a bit of instant bling!)
Lady K Loves have some fab ones online.
The shoes are a bargain from New Look- I think I love all their shoes and peep toe wedges are so 1950s!
And the jumper matches my Rockalily lipstick to a tee!
There is something so uber-glam about the 1950s- a wonderful era of post war freedom, women who knew how to dress well and enjoyed being girlie and not forgetting the archetypal fifties housewife. I may not be Elizabeth David, but I do love a bit of fifties chic in my world! I am proud to be a wife and mother, business woman and re-scripter of identity so all things vintage perfectly capture my frequency.
What's your favourite era and why?
