50s Flare with a Modern Twist

Monday, August 5, 2013


{Dress: Anthropologie (similar here and here); Wedges: ShoeMint;
Belt: Shareen Vintage}










Is there anything more feminine than a 50s inspired dress?  This silhouette is a favorite of mine - it's flattering and flowy and hides beautifully what you don't want accentuated.  The added bonus that the skirt twirls - as a little girl I wouldn't allow my mom to buy a single dress or skirt if it didn't twirl properly.

The double belt and yellow wedges are my way of updating the look.  The dress is conservative enough that I can wear it to work, even with the wedges.  Plus, I use summer as my excuse to make boring officewear a little bit brighter.
