1940s Style Vintage Dress

Hi guys and gals,

For today's post, I'm wearing my 1940s style vintage dress. I say ''1940s style'' because I don't know exactly when this dress is from. I bought it at a vintage shop in Rome and was told that it ''looks like it's from the 1940s'' but I think it could even be from the 1980s (I have a suspicious mind, haha!). There are so many eighties does fifties dresses around. Mine could be an eighties does forties dress. Like I said in my previous post: once a classic, always a classic! Though I don't like fashion from the eighties (it's just not my style....different strokes for different folks), it doesn't matter 'cause this dress I'm wearing, reminds me of the dresses that beautiful Lauren Bacall used to wear!


My hat and bag are vintage while my shoes are modern does vintage ;)
Aren't the buttons and the pockets just darlin'??
I forgot to take a picture of the back but there's a little belt 
behind that makes the waist nip in!
When I first tried on the dress, I thought, ''Goodness no, these puffy sleeves make me look like Arnold Shwarzenegger.'' Now, I've come to love the sleeves; they're actually the reason why this dress is special!

 Last but not least, a picture with my cutest accessory: my pooch! <3

Ciao bambole, 

Per il post di oggi mi sono messa il mio vestito vintage, stile anni '40. L'ho comprato in un mercatino vintage a Roma e mi è stato detto che ''sembra proprio degli anni '40'' ma secondo me potrebbe anche essere degli anni '80. Negli anni '80, creavano molti vestiti stile anni '40 e '50 e infatti si trovano molti di questi abiti nei negozi vintage. In inglese un vestito del genere viene descritto come ''eighties does fifties'' o ''eighties does forties.'' Devo dire che io non sono fan degli anni ottanta; lo stile di quell'epoca non mi rappresenta....i gusti son gusti! Comunque sia, quest'abito mi ricorda tanto gli abiti che indossava la bellissima Lauren Bacall, una delle mie dive preferite degli anni '40-'50.

Quando ho indossato il vestito per la prima volta ho pensato ''Mamma mia, con queste maniche gonfie sembro Arnold Schwarzenegger.'' Adesso invece le adoro; hanno il loro perché e rendono il vestito ancora più speciale!


Ciao for now!

  2. Che sia anni'40 o anni '80 non ha molta importanza cristo che... ti sta benissimo e poi lo hai valorizzato e reso molto anni'40 con gli accessori, scelte ottime! Riguardo i decenni..be'.. il fascino degli anni '40 (ma anche '20, '30 e '50) lo subisco tantissimo anch'io e mi piace, ma non li sento molto miei, poi in Italia sono stati dei periodi pessimi... mentre gli anni '80 per me sono stati gli anni più spensierati e dove si è prodotta la musica che amo e che mi somiglia...

  13. It does not matter if it's from 80' or 40' ;), it's lovely 'retro style'. Style from 40' is still retro today, but it was also retro in 80'.

    Your shoes and bag is perfect with this dress :)))!!

    You could be the best Bonnie in movie about "Bonnie and Clyde" !!!! :D
