(Anthropologie's) 50's Proper




Rich textures and layers, combined with polite lengths and details make for a very sweet 50's look! Prim and proper with a twist, you might say. Speaking of twists, the model's loose and low chignon is a must try! Also, I think the last ensemble might have to make its way into my closet. Don't you just love those pistachio, buttery shoes? They look so comfortable...What do you think about these outfits?

Also, a few mid-week links you might like...

  8. I love the cinched waists because it emphasizes all the pretty little details at the shoulders. It all makes for a lovely silhouette!

  14. Love the library backdrop. I wish, I wish we had Anthropologie in Canada. My favorite one is the shot with the little hat.

  15. Christine -- I know exactly what you mean. There is good news on the streets, though! It seems that we here in Vancouver can expect an Anthropologie fairly soon. They wanted to open one 2 years ago, but there were no available spots at the time. I will keep you posted :)
