Vintage 1940s Inspired Lookbook

While raiding Ayah's wardrobe, we found this cute little denim tea-dress, and we were inspired to do a 1940's style lookbook.

To achieve this style, we curled the hair and pinned it slightly back. For makeup we went for a winged eyeliner, whilst keeping the rest quite classic with a pink lip.
The gloves were an impulsive addition, we wanted to add a little bit of class (and let's be honest, it's just fun to wear long gloves!). We decided on simple black flat shoes because we couldn't find a heel to suit the look!

Dress: Forever21
Gloves: An independent store

This photoshoot was so much fun to do! It involved a lot of trotting back and forth as we tried to get good 'natural' action shots, as well as ignoring the strange looks we got from people driving past!

As we said, it's only a Vintage Inspired look, so forgive us for a bit of poetic licence in our historical accuracy!

Questions of the day:
Do you like to channel a little vintage into your everyday look?
