Taking it back to the 1950’s


Hope you guys all had a great Easter! The four day Easter weekend has gone by so quickly and now it’s time for me to get down to doing some hard core revision for my upcoming exams, or at least that’s what I keep telling myself LOL, but of course there’s always time for a blog post or two 🙂 Over the weekend my family and I celebrated my uncle’s 60th birthday party and we always like to make things a little bit interesting and fun so we decided to go for a 50’s theme! He was born in the 50’s so it only made sense to dress the part!

Taking inspiration from some of the greatest fashion icons from the 50’s like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, it wasn’t too difficult to come up with an outfit style.

Here’s how I decided to put the look together.



Black Turtle neckMiss Selfridge size 4

Grey striped SkirtASOS Marketplace – Pink Strawberry size XS

Black UnderskirtAmazon UK size XS – this gave the skirt that extra 50’s flare


Grey court shoesMatalan – I bought these last year so they’re no longer on the website 😦

Vintage Pearl Necklace – Claire’s accessories – this necklace was so hard to find!

Pearl BraceletTiffany & Co


Have you guys ever dressed up for a 50’s themed night or anything similar?
