Bygone Eras

There's a saying that fashion always come full circle and if you keep something long enough it won't be too long before it's the height of fashion again. Dungarees are a prime example and it's slightly worrying that I remember wearing them the first time around - am I really getting that old?

Simply Be is featuring a special article about five decades of fashion and it got me thinking about my favourite eras. My personal favourite fashion throwbacks take influence from the 1950s and 1960s. I am much more comfortable in full midi length skirts paired with structured Kelly bags. You can pick up Kelly bags from charity shops and bootsales fairly easily. But with the high street constantly going back in time to find influences you'll find plenty to tickle your fancy if rummaging isn't really your thing.

I feel wiggle dresses compliment my body shape the most. I feel confident and ready to shake what my mumma gave me when I'm dressed up to the nines. This style of dress is something that I can't seem to stop buying. One of my new years resolutions was actually to start shopping more vintage and I haven't yet put that into place. Thankfully there's still six more months of the year left and I feel a visit to Brick Lane is on the cards.
