Are you singing along yet?! If not, shimmy into those pedal pushers, hop in this DeLorean and get in the spirit! We're travelling to the past and it's gonna be a blast, stud.
With summer seasons rife with WWII re-enactment events, I decided to take a break from my beloved forties and jump forward a decade or two. There are so many wonderful eras with some truly amazing fashion (late 18th Century Georgian style is a particular favourite of mine... elaborate millinery and humongous skirts galore!), and my recent purchase of a pair of blue gingham high-waisted leggings prompted a little trip back to the fun-loving fifties and sixties! My hair took f o r e v e r to backcomb so appreciative comments and compliments will be greeted with much enthusiasm ;) Enjoy! Wop baba lumop a wap bam boom!
