Around Town

Today, I ran into a gal at the bank who was wearing a lovely vintage inspired outfit. I thought her look was a bit 40's and somehow convinced her to allow me to photograph it for my blog! I was so pleased to see this kind of dressing while out and about and am hoping to capture some more!

Her blouse was sheer ivory with a lace mock collar and pearlized buttons, and her matching linen vest and pencil skirt were chocolate brown. The vest had a cutaway neckline and was cinched at the waist with a belt, while her knee length skirt had ruffles on the sides. She completed her look with sheer ivory stockings and the cutest 40's style ankle strap, peep toe pumps. The shoes were ivory but the trim and flowers were tan. She kept it a bit modern by unbuttoning the collar and leaving the blouse untucked, but nevertheless a cute 40's style!

It's great seeing people get all retro - and it's amazing when they can do it so well that it doesn't look like they're wearing a costume. Nice outfit!

You KNOW that my next question must be: What type of purse did she have?!?!!?!

Writing about Hollywood's "Golden Age" with an eye towards makeup artistry and clothes is a terrific perspective. Thanks for your insights.
