1940s Looks

A wartime kitchen. This lady's name was Mrs Haslet and she lived in London. She was photographed cooking a meal on her gas cooker.

Christian Dior

Christian Dior's New Look, 1947. As a reaction to the rationing of World War II the new look, using many metres of fabric, came into fashion. It was a return to the classic feminine shape, emphasising the bust and hips, with a tiny waist. I love how glamorous this looks with the tiny jacket and voluminous skirt.

The Women’s Land Army were the unsung heroines of World War II. With so many men overseas, women were brought in to work on farms, producing the vital food supplies needed to keep wartime Britain going.

Fearne Cotton’s glovely

Image 40 Although this is not 1940s glamour I love the glossiness of the red lipstick and I will hopefully be using a gloss in my final design.

I like the repetitive sunflower used it look spontaneous, and the background is white and which makes the design stand out.

This one is just fun. Looks like another "captured moment" photo which I love. I love the "I'm on vacation" feel to it as well!

I love tea dresses. Fitted up top, flowy on the bottom, and the perfect length for work or weekends. I also love the vintage vibe of this dress.
