Oh, the elegance of the 1950's. I've been doing research for a designer for an upcoming play taking place in 1953 and have stumbled upon so many great images*! This seems especially relevant since so many fashion trends right now are revolving around the '50s (vintage, round, tortoise-shell sunglasses, red lips & nails, and just the all around simple sophistication of a beautiful silhouette). I don't know where my nostalgia for times past comes from, but I do know that I find so much inspiration in it. Hoping you will you too :) xo
*these were all found on the Internet... some I have cited, some not. Just an FYI - go anti-plagiarism!
