An Outfit Of Era's


 Playsuit - New Look (Old)
White Shirt - Topshop
Flatform Boots - Urban Outfitters
Fedora - H&M
Sunglasses - H&M (Old)
Necklace & Choker - eBay

This is me, sporting an outfit that can only be described as a mish-mash of era's.  Let's start from the top and work our way down.  The good ol' fedora.  Widely worn from the 20's to the early 50's, where its widespread popularity emerged from its association with gangsters and the Prohibition.  And what do you know, 60 year's later they are back!  The cat eye sunglasses were oh so fashionable in the 50's and 60's, and I must say, there is something that feels particularly classy and lady like when wearing a pair.  The layering of the playsuit over the shirt, along with the choker - that's so 90's.  The playsuit itself?  I'm getting 40's/50's pin up vibes from this.  The polka dots, the sinched in high waist.  You agree?  Last, but most definitely not least, are my fave (for the moment) boots.  So deliciously spikey, and the flatform dates back to the 90's.

So there you have it - an outfit of era's.  A bit of a different take on your normal outfit post, but enjoyable to write, and to show how today's fashion has routes as far back as the 20's.

  10. As soon as I looked at this post I thought what a mash of styles (in a good way). I really like the shirt under the playsuit and I think the hat really works with it. I think overall it has a real 90s vibe but then the 90s was inspired by the previous era's.

    Also, those shoes are so cute. I wish they'd suit me but I know I'd feel clumpy in them haha

    Great post and pictures! Nice to read something a bit different!

    Haaappy Summer!

  14. Really love how you've styled this playsuit with the white top underneath and the frilly socks, but also kept it a bit edgy with the shoes!

    Amazing look! :)

  17. Fabulous outfit! I love that you wore a white shirt underneath your playsuit. Normally, I don't think to layer up in this way (I would have wore the playsuit and slipped on a cardi which can be a little annoying) but will try and incorporate this into my outfits :D X

  39. I love this playsuit! It's such a flattering cut. I also would never think to pair it with a shirt but it looks so much better than it would on it's own! Also, I love your tattoos. I haven't even noticed them before!
