It's London Fashion Week this week, as some of you may already know, so it's a pretty exciting time for those of us who are fashion fanatics! If you follow me on Instagram: @angelhowarth then you may be aware that in celebration of London Fashion Week I am going to be blogging every day. Every day this week I will be choosing a time period and dressing accordingly. Fashion has been around for so many years, and to reflect upon how fashion has changed or in fact stayed the same, I thought fashion week was the perfect opportunity to show case this. ENJOY!
So today's look is 1940's inspired. The tea dress I am wearing was purchased from a vintage fair in Leeds: The Kilo Sale. I actually purchased this only a few days ago, but fell in love with it. Thankfully, it actually fits me which was lucky since I never actually tried it on - in fact it fits me like a glove which is a real bonus. There is some slight wear and tear on parts of the dress, however since this seems to be an original (yes I've done my research), the handmade dress can be modified with a few stitches here and there! I love tea dresses, I think they're so elegant and lady-like; and they leave on show all the right places - not provocative in the slightest! I also adore the flower buttons on the chest, they're ever so sweet and give the dress such character! That's the beauty with vintage, the clothing has lived it's own little life and so bares so much character!
I paired the dress with some heels from Topshop that I've popped on the blog before, but they seemed to be the most appropriate footwear in my wardrobe that matches with the theme!
I hope you liked my 1940's blogpost, and I also hope you're excited to see what my 1950's blog post will bring!
