Last weekend, Ross and I attended a birthday part for one of Ross’s workmates. Seeing as how the birthday boy was born in 1942, the party was 40’s themed. I took advantage of the event and styled a fun, nautical-themed 40’s outfit:
– Blue and white striped dress, vintage from Dookie Emporium
– Red Mary Jane shoes from I Love Billy
– Nude stockings from Target
– Nautical themed silk scarf (thrifted)
I was so pleased with how my hair turned out. Normally, it takes me forever to get my victory rolls to look tidy and symmetrical, but on this day I got it right first try!
The party was so much fun. We ate a delicious lunch and the host made sure that our glasses never ran dry. I actually wound up getting a lot drunker than I’d intended to. I blame it on the hot sun and the fact that I started drinking on an empty stomach.
Have you ever been to a 1940’s themed party? What did you wear?
