Channeling the 40's




As I was getting dressed to go to a wedding, I was told that I was dressed like I was from the 40's. 
When will the husband learn that I take that as a compliment!?!?



In retrospect, I should've worn a belt to give the look a little more shape but at the time I was feeling the sleekness of no belt. 
I plan on getting a lot of wear out of this skirt, so you'll see it again:)
Probably sooner than later...


Skirt worn as a dress: Anthropologie
Vintage clutch
Heels: Steve Madden
Tux Jacket: Thrifted by Juanette
Necklace: Borrowed from Juanette

 Juanette and I will be in Austin this weekend at the Texas Style Council Conference. 
Tweet me if you'll be there!

You look AMAZING!! Spouses are funny, lol. I think the lack of shape aids in the 40's effect! I can't wait to see you and Juanette in Austin this weekend!!!

Love this look! Your hair and accessories bring the whole look together.

Thank you. I seem to wear them more as dresses than as skirts! It is my first instinct to try that look first www.godsfavoriteshoes.com
