A Little Inspiration From the 50’s

Hello Beauties!

I was so inspired by this skirt; it belonged to my mother who found it at a garage sale. The pattern is gorgeous and detailed while the structure is incredibly simple. It’s a thicker material, but doesn’t have a lot of layering, so even though it can be a little cumbersome at times (aka sitting) it doesn’t get too overheated.

With a history dating back to the late 1800s and the beautiful ceiling designs of Grand Central Station that make you feel like you have been transported back in time, why not sport a vintage skirt and pearl earrings just like the many travelers passing through before me. It felt surreal in a way, which is funny how an outfit can bring on such emotions. Sadly I was also getting over a stomach flu at the time so the feeling didn’t last very long…

I’d pair this piece with a loose blouse, preferably lighter in color. You can even add a light pattern to it, just make sure it goes with the colors and theme of the skirt! Light jewelry and small earrings add to the modesty of the style, while also bringing about a sophistication to the wearer. Who doesn’t want to feel like Audrey Hepburn for the day?
