Continuing with the year-by-year fashion inspiration, this week it’s 1950 that we’re taking a closer look at. I gathered a variety of images that I think show some of the novelty styles that were popular at this point, as well as some of the looks that were more typical. Lots of fun eye-candy–sure to inspire–in this post! Hope you enjoy!
This lovely dress has a very Victorian-inspired silhouette with it’s basque waist and draped bustle. It originally came in pink, lilac, aqua, ice blue and sunny yellow! I think the latter sounds particularly pretty!
Aren’t these shoes stunning?! I love how they are “certified copies” too (one wonders though…). hehe! The blue suede heels are my favorite–as is the green handbag on the right. Can I just say that you could also get matching handbags?! So fun!
I wish you could see a close-up of this print, because it looks like it would be so fun! Yet another novelty print, this time it’s an opera-themed one. I love the angled closure on the jacket as well.
I never tire of posting some of the gorgeous vintage shoes from this era! The names of these are so cute too–Rhythm and Runabout are my favorites! The two blouses on the right are such a hoot! I am never quite sure how I feel about styles like this that are so blatantly novel (despite my adoration of novelty prints–especially exaggerated collars. But they sure are fun to look at!
