|The Retro Summer Blog Party|
Today linking up with fashion blogger Paige at Sunday Best and All the Rest and joining in her Retro Summer Blog Party!
Today is the last day to join in so hurry on over to her site to read the guidelines if you'd like to participate!!!
I had sort of a difficult time coming up with an outfit! I tried on a dress then put it back in my closet. I shuffled through a few other outfits a couple which I had worn recently and even though I hadn't blogged about them, I didn't really feel like wearing them again so soon.
Anyway, it sparked the idea of a 1930s/1940s inspired outfit. While the actual style of the shirt is not 100% accurate, I think when paired with my polka dot skirt it definitely evokes retro flair. I decided to do hair and makeup to add to the whole look. My shoes, which you can't really see in either picture are just brown ballet flats. Also not very conducive to an accurate 30s or 40s look, but I don't think they take anything away from this outfit.
Shirt: Kohls (?)
Skirt: Dress Barn (orig. a dress that I refashioned into a skirt.)
Shoes: PayLess Shoe Source
