Dress/Play Clothes Shoes/ Sun Thrift
Last night was my Mom and my Grandma's birthday party. They had it at this really cool venue (I found for them) called Complete Actors Place. It was a 1950s and 1970s themed party. My gut told me to dress 70s, because it would be so easy and I wouldn't have to buy anything, but the side of my brain that likes to take risks was like, EVERYONE is going to dress 70s, DRESS 50s! So I did. I went to these shops on Magnolia in Burbank a couple of days ago and looked around a bunch of vintage shops, and landed on this dress. I got it from this super awesome store called Play Clothes, they have a great selection of vintage clothing from the 40s to the 80s. Their clothes are a little bit pricey, but all vintage is pricey. = It was labeled 1950s but I think its more of an early 60s dress because of the style and the placement of the zipper. I thought it was beautiful and I wanted to stray away from a costume. I knew that when people thought 50s, they would dress in a poodle skirt, or dress like something you would see in the movie Greece. I wanted to do more of a classy housewife of the 50s (I think I achieved that goal.). Going to all of those stores really made me miss buying authentic vintage pieces. In high school, I was a vintage junky. I was obsessed with the 60s and 70s (I was also a hippy). To bad I don't have enough money for that haha.
Music- In honor of my outfit, I am going to post some music from the 50s. Chuck Berry - Maybellene
