Obsessed

I've always had a love affair with pretty clothes. My style is distinctly feminine...98% of the time you will catch me wearing a dress or skirt. I am very wistful of the days when people always dressed up and ladies wore elegant hats and gloves. My favorite style decade is definitely the 1950's, and I am beyond thrilled to have my mom's collection of vintage patterns. All of this means that I am madly in love with the ladylike pieces that are dominating fall fashion. I have been obsessing over the Louis Vuitton Fall collection since Fall Fashion Week so many months ago. I'm already plotting how I will recreate these looks on my own using my patterns from the 50's.

Some of my favorites:

Oooh beautiful outfits!! I am right there with you on wishing for the times where women dressed up. I'm reading Gone With the Wind right now and the women are Southern ladies, always dressed to the nines. Sigh...

I love wearing dresses! They are not only super feminine, but it's such an effortless way of looking cute!

love dresses--not a fan of jeans---I love styles of the 1950's and early 1960's , and how clean and crisp everyone always looked----also super sad that no one wears hats anymore!
