we have not been at home one full week-end since VLV!
So I have many late posts still to come...
We were in my parents' place on these pictures for mothers' day.
I wanted to wear a colorful dress for the first warmer days of the year.
I decided to give a chance to this late 50's european dress.
Sylvain who always wants to be different chose to wear autumnish colors...
So we really didn't match on that day!
I never wore that dress before because I think it has a big flaw... it's too short...
Late 50's skirts, mainly european ones, are really shorter than the lenght I like to wear.
Although I'm sure that it has not been shorten,
it's its original lenght,
I feel that it would have looked better with a few more inches...
but I really loved its colors and these painted flowers, so I bought it even if I would have like it to be longer!
Most of 40's-50's european clothes were tailor or homemade made, almost no ready to wear ones.
Fabrics were expensive and people not too rich, that's also why dresses were often shorter in Europe than in the USA.
For once, my husband went out with a 50's pair of shoes...
Vintage shoes are quite hard to wear on a everyday basis, they have become so fragile.
but he had to wear these vintage FLORSCHEIM ones on that day... why?
To match his tie bar!!!
Hard for him to leave his 50's jackets in his wardrobe...
And here are some closer views of my accessories.
Huge 50's velvet hat...
Flowers on dress, on hair and on purse...
and flowers all around!
Do you like late 50's fashion?
Do you mind wearing quite short skirts?
Beaucoup de retard sur le blog... voici quelques clichés datant de la fête des mères... 1 mois déjà!
Printemps oblige j'avais choisi une tenue très florale avec cette robe fin 50's. Je la portais pour la 1ère fois car je lui trouve un gros défaut... sa jupe est trop courte à mon goût! C'est souvent le cas pour les robes européennes de cette époque, mais bon, le motif est si glamour que j'ai voulu lui donner une chance... vous en pensez quoi? Sylvain est quand à lui rester bloquer en automne avec cette tenue.
- A très bientôt -
