50s/60s Fashion

After watching Hairspray and The Help within the same week, I feel obliged to do a late 50s/
early 60s fashion post!

Modcloth is an amazing clothing website which sells an array of different vintage styled
clothing. Sometimes with vintage clothing it looks a little out of place if you are going out
in it, however I think Modcloth’s clothing is very wearable and easy to incorporate into 
your wardrobe. Also, you can find lots of vintage dresses on Etsy – some are even tailored 
to your measurements! I found a website called Gin and Sin through Etsy, which I haven’t 
ordered anything from but the dresses look beautiful.

A celebrity I spotted wearing this style of dress was Emma Stone on the Ellen Show. Not only 
do I have fashion inspiration from her on Ellen, she’s actually in The Help so vintage fashion 
inspiration came from there too!

I think when wearing your vintage dress, it's best to keep everything else simple - especially if your dress has a bright colour/pattern like Emma Stones.

Thanks for reading, let me know in the comments if you know any good places to find vintage dresses!
