… for 50s-inspired looks.
i didn’t like to wear full skirts for a long time – they always seemed too girlish to me. but this spring my opinion miraculously changed and now i like full-skirts-and tiny-waist outfits. it still feels a little unfamiliar though (but it perfectly hides my hips, the broadest part of my body…)
i wore this dress and the pink cardi for mothers day and received lots of compliments – especially ladies in their 60s and 70s got quite enthusiastic : “my dear, what a lovely dress! i used to have something quite similar when i was young.” i like the idea of wearing something that could also have been worn decades ago. (maybe i can work my way back to flapper-dresses some day…)
