You look like you were in Pearl Harbour...

On Friday I went to an event in London where I was required to dress in a late 1940's style.... cue panic.  I do not own anything remotely 1940's and to be honest didn't really want to spend money on something that I probably wasn't ever going to wear again.  However, my best friend is a proper vintage girl and so raided my waredrobe for items that could be vaguely classed as 1940's.  She pulled out a few items and here is what I chose to wear!

Without flash


Blouse: Karen Millen
Pencil Skirt Karen Millen
Tights: Gipsy French Back Seam Tights at ASOS (here)
Shoes: Kurt Geiger

Although I didn't want to buy anything I did concede and buy some seamed tights, which I now love.  I'm not sure how often/with what outfits I can get away with wearing them but they do amazing things for your legs!


 
After not being too keen on dressing up in late 1940's style I actually started to really enjoy it I also started to think that I actually look better like this than how I dress in real life, which is pretty depressing!

A post including my FOTD and close ups of my hair (I managed a couple of victory rolls!) will be coming soon.
