Outfit of the Day – Channelling the 50s Housewife!

I got this pretty new dress on Ebay the other day. I have plans to completely alter it as I love the full skirt and the pretty print, but the top of the dress is horrible. In the pics I’m hiding it under a wool cardigan. I am wearing the dress with my red petticoat which I love but hardly get the chance to wear. I wearing a 1950’s brooch and pearls which were a gift from my Grandma and my shoes were a bargain from the New Look Sale. My hair is far too long for this look but I keep putting off getting it cut!

    What a punchy, fantastic ensemble! I love a good multi-coloured, vibrant plaid like that, too. You look beautiful, sweet gal!

      Thank you! The brightness certainly cheered me up and made me think of spring!

    Ah, what a lovely look. Very ‘springy’, just what we need with the Great British weather currently. It would be great to see how you alter the top half.

      Thanks! I was loving the bright colours! I’m working on plans for the top half, I’m going to look at some 1950s patterns and get some ideas from them.
