It doesn’t take much to take a classic dress design/cut and time warp it back to the 1950’s!
This soft cotton faux lace dress is a perfect opportunity to make it a RETRO outfit. Not only is the dress stretchy, soft and comfortable BUT it has enough flare in the skirt to make it FUN! I really enjoy retro looks and being able to bring that style to work and still make it appropriate is quite a goal.
For this look I decided on a red skinny belt, by metal enamel necklace and earrings and what really pulled the look together were my retro shoes. My hair is a natural curly frizz and decided to place one comb over one ear to tame it a bit. I forgot to bring my favorite flowers for my hair, sadly!
I kept my makeup neutral on the eyes and emphasized them with a dramatic thick upward winged eye liner. I can’t make myself wear anything but a rich red lipstick when I’m in this mood… don’t know why, but I LOVE it!
My Son and I scouted the area for a good background and found this beautiful home complete with the rocking chair and American flag. The lighting was PERFECT as our poor little camera works best in a shaded environment. It was just meant to be….
I had fun making my Son giggle with some comic poses and am sharing one which I call the “OH MY GOODNESS!” look that I hope makes you smile when you see it.

I’m wearing a Size 16W and it was a tiny bit loose on the neckline but fit perfectly on my beefy arms and think it’s a good fit as is.
