'you know what they say, there's a sock for every old slipper'



Recently, I've been rekindling my love of the 1940's, because lets face it, who doesn't love a tea dress, rollered hair and a man in a uniform? This it seems, is where my excitement for summer begins. The thought of retro bikinis and vintage playsuits has me daydreaming the rest of winter away!
Although they aren't vintage, they are still gorgeous and seem to carry that 1940's air about them. The dresses are from Topshop and Miss Selfridge. Just add seamed stockings, a vintage fascinator and some red lipstick and you're set to charm those soldiers!
