Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge: Modern 50's

Today's Wardrobe Challenge is one of two provided by aspiring tattoo artist CB - Modern 1950s. There was a time when I was really obsessed with anything 1950's - but I have to admit these days I seem to be embracing all kind of vintage, rather than sticking exclusively with one decade.
Our dear - our lounge is far from tidy! Oh well - I guess that's what happens in an apartment which is occupied by two artsy fartsy types.
 
Some of today's accessories - a doughnut ring and Hello Kitty charm bracelet.
Also a brooch I bought at Craft 2.0 some years ago.
Heart shoes and fluro pink fishnet tights.
Close up of the fabric of the dress.
Hope you folks are all having a lovely week!

OUTFIT DEETS:
Shoes & Scarf - Retro Room, Willis Street, Wellington
Tights - Farmers
Dress - Baby Girl Boutique
Cardi - Op Shopped, Opportunity for Animals
Brooch - Craft 2.0
Ring - Newtown Fair
Bracelet - Hello Kitty Cafe, Hongdae, Seoul
Belt - From another dress

What a stunning frock and the accessories match it beautifully! Your waist looks so teeny!
I'm not keen on dressing in one era from head to toe either, you just become a fashion victim (albeit a vintage one) rather than letting who you are shine through.
Hoorah for mess! If you saw how much i had to shift to get a photo of me standing by the cooker you'd think I lived in a junk yard! x

Hehe I'm glad I'm not the only one with a slightly cluttered house! That outfit is so pretty....I love the blue cardi & the brooch & the style of that frock. I love the 50's but I'm more of a vintage hybrid I suppose! Xx

Clutter is what makes a house a home :)

That is the cutest print ever!

You look amazing in this dress!! I love it! I love that your outfit is kind of food themed. You look so cute, I love it. :-) One of these days I should join the challenge, it looks so fun. I would have tried to be like, a Rizzo-Pink-Lady type 50's.

Absolutely adore this dress! It is amazing, and so flattering. Plus, those heart shoes are possible the cutest thing I've ever seen.
