Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge - 1950's

Today's wardrobe challenge was the 1950's - the dress I was planning to wear is a little big and needs to be altered and the other dress I could have possibly worn was still damp from washing. So I didn't end up looking very 1950's at all but I thought I would still share my outfit for the day.The dress is another Kitty Bridges creation - the dress is called Tokyo Cherry and I like it a whole lot. I've worn it in all parts of the world as its flattering and really comfortable as well. I love the pattern and the red trim.
A close up of the fabric of the dress - cherries and little blossoms.

I decided to wear the bloodied heart that Vany made for me in our 13 days of Halloween swap.
This amazing beaded cuff is also made by the amazing Vany in another 13 days of Halloween swap we did - there are four pop art inspired skulls on the cuff. I do love this hair bow and I haven't been wearing hair bows much lately - I'm not sure why, maybe because its winter and I have been wearing hats to work? Now the weather is warmer I think its time to bring back the hair bow.
I must have been making up for the lack of bows in my life in recent times as I wore bow patterned fishnet stockings as well.

Outfit Deets:

Shoes - Cotton On
Tights - I forget :P
Dress - Kitty Bridges
Cardy - Glassons
Necklace & Cuff - Made by Vany
Hair Bow - Received in a craft swap

1. I think you look very 50's and modern at the same time.

2. You have this never ending supply of adorable dresses. I'm jealous.
