So this week’s Fashion Friday is inspired by the event I am going to tomorrow, the 1940's Ball. It's a beautiful evening of music and dancing. This years theme is Casablanca, one of my favorite movies. I cannot wait to see the set design.
I have obviously purchased my dress for this event months ago. I won't reveal the details but expect a picture heavy post soon.
If I were rich and could have any dress I wanted for this event, these would be the six dresses I would choose from. That is correct, I did say six; I truly could not narrow it down to five and now you will see why.
A lovely and feminine custom made vintage 1940's dress. It a pale cream colored fabric with an overall grey art deco floral print, tight pin tuck at the neckline, and fully gored skirt for swing and shape. ($182.00).
A 1940’s black crepe gown with tiny rhinestone bows. I adore the bows and the sweetheart neckline. ($765.00).
A 1930’s pale yellow tea length dress in a soft semi-sheer thin cotton with a vividly colored novelty print, short scalloped sleeves, removable shoulder pads, delicate gatherings at the shoulders, scalloped edges at the neckline and down the front of the bodice, four covered yellow plastic buttons, and fabric belt. ($240.00).
A formal 1930’s hand embroidered rainbow floral motif dress on sheer black. The dress is two parts, the outer layer and a beautiful black under dress; the under dress is cut beautifully with heavy ruching in the shoulders. ($185.00)
A 1940’s white pique cotton dress with pink and yellow rose print, wide padded shoulders, notch neckline with white carved floral plastic buttons to the waist. ($200.00).
A darling 1940’s coral dahlia print rayon shorts romper with coordinating button down overskirt (swoon). ($265.00).
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
