Vintage Inspiration: The Glorious 1950's

I've been somewhat lacking in the outfit inspiration department recently and frankly speaking, quite dissatisfied with my looks. However, after reading Isabel Wolff's 'Vintage Affair' and watching 'How to Marry a Millionaire' (1953) starring the fabulous Marylin accompanied by Lauren Bacall, I think I'm getting my fashion mojo back. Let's just admire these glamorous shots, ladies and gents.

I'll be posting a 50's-inspired outfit next week, so stay tuned if you like that! I've been also thinking about starting a series featuring work of some famous fashion photographers, especially from 1940's-1960's. Would you be interested in seeing it on the blog? Have a wonderful weekend, lovelies!

  4. @kAy: That's so true, 50's were an era of formal wear, no true lady would ever be caught without a proper dress, hair and make-up! Oh, I'm not French - what I was trying to say is that in Poland we also have crepes, they're just called differently, but still just as delicious :) My mum serves them with jam or fresh fruit and whipped cream in season... or sometimes with spinach and ricotta :)

    @Marina: I loved your post on vintage make-up ads! The outfit post will be up very shortly xxx

    @Miss Cupcake: Thank you, hun, and welcome to the blog! xxx
