Anything Goes?

This weekend the fam and I went the hs production of Anything Goes. The outfits reminded me that I MUST MUST MUST begin my decade dress posting. Thats right....from the 50s to the 80s I will search the internet for clothes, style, and most importantly, fashion!

First things first...50s!

-Think dresses, high waisted skirts, polka dots, and curly hair

-Look at the lady in the picture!!!! She has splendiforous gloves that I wish I had!!!

-Wear some white tights just like Alice in Wonderland!
-Saddle shoes were big in the 50s...try some on and skip down the street.
-If you need to carry some books, why not use a satchel?
-As for make-up, thick liquid eyeliner, red lipstick, and false eyelashes will do!

-Channel Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, and Audrey Hepburn for a fifties look!
-Wear cardigans with full skirts.
-Brooches, costume beads, and corsages complete the 50s look!
NOW GO...search through your closets for the perfect 50s outfit!!
