1940s Style

Since today is the 69th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, I wanted to share a little bit about one of my favorite eras of fashion, the 1940s, and how I mimic the style.

A classic cut dress is always in style. Pencial and A-Line skirts are a definite. Some of the vintage clothing sites I obsessively peruse include:

Some of my current favorites on StopStaringClothing.com:

I love too many of them! They’re “everyday” costumes! ♥

Round-toe pumps & peep-toe pumps are definitely 1940s style!

♥ Christian Louboutin… ♥
Someday… someday.

And, lets just take a moment to appreciate these: Peep toe and covered in studs!


A sexy winged cat eye is perfect for 1940s style. Liquid liner is the way to go.

And if you are going all-out anyway, get a set of false lashes… glam all the way.

Just don’t go crazy with a bunch of colored shadows. Allow the liner to make the statement. Light, Neutral shadows are best.

And, (my favorite,) the classic red lip is a no-brainer choice when topping off your 1940s makeup.

Although a subtle eye is usually encouraged with red lips, when paired with the totally not subtle cat eyes, it is perfectly acceptable.

If you’re really going all out, search YouTube for 1940s hair tutorials, there are some really cute and easy ones on there.
