Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge:1940s

This weeks Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge was 1940s which was something I really struggled with. I don't think I have anything that really looks like its from that era. I chose to wear this dress as it's quite structured. But I don't think 1940s at all when I see this frock. Oh well.
My hair is kind of long and out of control right now - but I am going to the hairdresser on Saturday and getting new extensions. Yah!
These photos were taken near the Majestic Centre, I used to work here before I moved to South Korea. Its the tallest building in Wellington and looks kind of pretty when its all lit up like this. Next weeks wardrobe challenge is "Corporate Gothic" which I think I will find a little easier!



Outfit Deets:




Dress: Bought of Trade Me
