'40s But Shorter


Dress: Moulinette Soeurs
Cardigan: Rubbish
Socks: For Love 21
Shoes: Target
Bag: thrifted

I love how this dress from Anthropologie has a 1940s look but with a hemline that falls above the knee and that interesting asymmetry thing going on. I bought this on sale at some point, but I can’t remember if it was last summer or the summer before. I’ve worn it several times with this yellow cardigan because I feel like the print needs something to brighten it up. It’s a pretty enough print with colors that I like, but I keep thinking about a review someone posted on the Anthro website saying that it looked “too drab.”

Also, I’m so excited that it was warm enough today to wear these little rose-print socks instead of tights. I was at a For Love 21 store the other day, and they had a whole bunch of super cute socks like this for $0.95 per pair. I also bought some gray ones with hot pink bows. I might have to go back and get more. I remember polka dots, hearts, stripes, mushrooms...SO many that I wanted.

  1. This dress is so pretty! It's such a great colour, you could wear it with pretty much any bright because it's a perfect neutral khaki green! It would look great with turquoise or robin's-egg blue! Or coral... or purple! Haha I love thinking of colour combinations.
    Also, those socks are adorable, you should go back and get all of them. Or at least the mushroom ones ;)
