Ruffles and bows


Although this dress is from the 1950s, it has a 1920s feel to it with thin airy cotton and layered tiers. My hair was a bit of a mess today so instead of wearing a hat I opted for a black scarf tied in a bow and let my locks lay as they will.
Since all my garter belts are unusable I've been rolling my stockings lately, a look popular with young girls of the 20s, so scandalous showing off ones knees! But thats just the kind of girl I am.

Dress: Hatties Vintage

Shoes: Meier and Frank

Oh I ADORE this outfit. First of all, pink and black are always a classic. Second of all, the layered skirt is amazing. And last, the rolled-up stockings are the perfect touch!

Thanks doll,

Sweet - and pretty - as cotton candy. Wonderful pastel dress, I really like how it embodies both the 20s and 50s :)

Wishing you a gorgeous Monday & week ahead!

I love this dress! Tiers of ruffles are always so sweet and romantic, imho. :) I really adore how the 50s interpreted the 20s styles into that decades silhouette; it's a very interesting, whimsical look!
