queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

Today I wanted to look like one of the 40’s girls you always see in photos from that period… you know, how there are all those sepia-toned photos of 40’s-era girls waiting from their boyfriends to come home from the war…and they’re almost always wearing polka dots. I wasn’t going to attempt any of the more complicated 40’s hairstyles, so I just wore my little clip and added my pearl necklace (which I really need to fix. Right now the two ends are just tied together.) I included a detail photo because in this case the little details make the outfit much more convincing. I’m also wearing lipstick, which is hard to see, but whenever I wear it I feel more old-fashioned.
(I just realized I’m not making a lot of sense today and my writing is probably really incoherent. I have an idea that I’m trying to say and it’s not coming out in the right way so…yeah.)

Another fashion-related tidbit: I had a dream in which a girl from my school was wearing a shredded lamé t-shirt. I have no idea if this is actually possible, and it’s exactly the sort of random, nonsensical thing my subconscious would come up with. WHAT DOES IT MEAN???

you look absoutely stunning in this outfit... i miss the days of forties and fifties-style dresses :( and i think the dream means that you are a true chictopian! haha! x

thanks so much...i feel the same way about 40's/50's clothing, sometimes I wish everyone was as elegant now as they were then (especially because everyone wore hats back then!) but anyways... yeah you're probably right, I spend too much time on chictopia and now it's invading my dreams! :D

I thought 1940's as soon as I saw this. Love this, esp. the pearls...(reminds me I should wear mine more often). I feel like you're one of the only few people who can pull this look off, love itttt. <3

thanks so much - i've always admired bloggers who wear nothing but vintage and really devote themselves to the look (Liebemarlene Vintage is the first that comes to mind)...I wanted to try it out for a day and I've realized that I really like sort of playing a character from another decade... if that makes any sense :)

well, technically it's a lovely brown dress, but the colors in my photos sometimes get messed up because my camera isn't exactly top notch quality... ;)
