40'S FUN

Cardigan: Savemart

Top: Hornby Op shop

Skirt: Savemart

Belt: Thrifted

Shoes: Hornby Op shop

Hat: Repertory Theatre sale

As much as I love the gorgeous full skirted dresses of the 1950's, I think my favourite era would have to be the 1940's. I love all the day to day things that were worn then; fitted shirts with high waist flowing skirts, 3/4 length pencil skirts with pleats, snuggly fitted cardigans, tailored jackets nipped in perfectly at the waist, and of course the hats. This hat reminded me of the amazing hat Ingrid Bergmman wore in Casablanca (one of my all time favourite movies), which is of course, set against the backdrop of WW2. xxxx

This was one of the first dresses I ever bought from Tete a Tete vintage-a beautiful vintage store in the CBD of Christchurch, owned by two lovely people and dear friends of ours. The fate of Tete a Tete is still unknown as Vanessa and Warren-the owners, have been unable to access either one of their two stores in the central city (the other is the gorgeous Two Squirrels) since the February earthquake.

I really miss both stores, and miss the whole experience of finding a beautiful vintage treasure and getting to chat to Vanessa and Warren at the same time. I hope they can gain access soon to get some of their gorgeous treasures back xxxx

Dress: Tete a Tete vintage

Cardigan: Thrifted
