50's skirt love

19:40 Posted by Jessica 31 comments
Hi! I haven't posted in a while, sorry about that been busy with school work! In my last post I showed you my charity shop finds, anyway, while experimenting with them I fell in love with my polka skirt. After watching last weeks 'Gok's fashion road show' I fell in love with underskirts... after some research I found out that in the 50's they were the craze! So I have a new fave decade! 70's I still love you but the 50's had great skirts :)

I threw in a few belts I found the other day- the things I find in the bottom of my drawers!

Post soon,

  12. agreed! if i could pick any decade to go back to it would probably be 60's-70's. love the carefree spirit of it all. but the more structured looks that came out of the 50's were pretty amazing. while i tend to go for more flowy things, i have a weak spot for the full skirt, hence my love for the louis vuitton fall 2010 collection, beautiful!

    nice blog!
