Wardrobe Wednesday: Flashback to the dawn of Modernism

'ello fwend

I'm inspired this month to explore our personal style by decade.  Actually it was on my mind to do this for some time and I was (still am) stuck for a pithy title for this kind of a theme and then I can across this online shop Ruche who have organised with shop by decade.  Genius!

I love love love the 1930's for design as well as for fashion.  So it will come as no surprise that I avidly watched Upstairs, Downstairs recently - such a visual feast!

This week's quite a simply look - and honestly this dress is so comfortable and yet I feel a little bit flash in a 30's kind of a way.  (The sleeves, the gathers across the back)

I added a little T-bar shoe and I thought about some bling, but it seemed too much, after all, I like wearing elements from a bygone era, but I don't want to look like I'm off to a costume party!  I went with my Sly Fox chevron earrings (I know I wear them a lot but I do love them).

I wore this to Crafty Business Monday night, at the aptly named The Monday Room.  It was such a good turn out this month - so much fun!
