Notion Fifty

IMG_6950

I have always adored the thought of dressing like a 1950’s housewife. Thanks to the internet and many boutiques that sell vintage and vintage-inspired items, looking like one is just a click away. Many of the style icons I look up to are from the 50’s and 60’s, needless to say Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn are at the top of that list.

This particular dress I purchased online here.

My purse is a simple light grey should bag that I got for next to nothing at a local thrift store. I wish I could help out a bit with the origin of my shoes but truth be told I bought them at a store a few years ago that has since gone out of business and I do not recall the name of it (private run). They are a real patent leather and they only cost me $20 at a clear-out summer sale.

Another great brand, which was actually started by a mother and daughter who sew from original vintage patterns is this one. Although I have never personally ordered online with them, I have purchased one of their fabulous dresses which I wore to my engagement party some years ago (see below for a picture).
