Retro Dress Inspiration: 4 dresses, 4 styles, all flawless

Happy Friday! Today I want to offer you something very usual. Today I want to chat with you. Normally when I write a post about something I give you a lot of space to look through the images and normally I don't push you to read, pay attention to the details or something. If I talk about fashion show I stick to only interesting facts (or may be very strong personal emotions, which I think benefit both of us). If I am showing my own outfit I normally mention why I wore this outfit, if there was an idea behind it, how did I feel wearing this particular outfit. If it's the inspiration post I simply state out what I liked this particular item and why chose the theme for the outfit. Today I want to spill more words, more thought and thus more effort into this post. I hope you will like it. I am not sure if I like enough to make it again any time soon but who knows, may be I will fall in love with long reads, right? Anyway, this time more than ever i want to hear your thoughts and impressions about my post. 
To make this post for you I  needed an interesting subject. As it is a hot summer day today I chose to write about dresses because I hardly wear anything else. To do so I decided to pick a new place for me so I don't have to keep in mind if I ever posted about anything from this online shop. I went to Zapaka boutique  this time, it is beautiful place to shop clothes for women and it's Swedish. I think I found a great place!
When I was choosing the styles for you I realized I mostly have my eyes on dress with distinct vintage vibe. I didn't want to fight it so you will mostly see these styles in this post. If not feel free to skip it: after all I want to know what you think. Let's take a look at what a fine Swedish lady would call retro klänning

Let's start with 60s! Many women find a lot of feminine inspiration in this period and I am no different. If I look for something girly, cute, elegant and easy to pull for a date I do think similar styles. Here I also love the calm yet unusual green color. Model has a matched headband which I think is mandatory for the dress.

Moving next: 40s? Not sure but it does give a vibe of it. I like similar styled dresses and it's actually a bit versatile option than the one before. Seriously, if you play around with accessories you can make it look very different. I think this particular dress is an investment. You can simply style it with heels and a purse (preferably of the same color) and be ready or add various options to play around with times. This dress can easily be worn with sneakers and a baseball cap giving an absolutely different look. Also this dress is very nice for meeting with family or your partner's family for the first-ish time.

You definitely knew I'd post 20s here as well. Gatsby kläder is a must in post like this and I just couldn't miss it. This dress scrims party to me and everyone else. Yes, it's not as popular and easy to find like couple of years ago but at the same time wearing this dress you wear the dress and the style you like not some trend made by a movie. Not that I really mind 'The Great Gatsby' movie, I just prefer to be there for clothes and style and love. I chose red because it's less common. The skirt is done beautifully here. At the same time waistline is a bit less 20s than you might want if you really go for the style, however this makes this dress far better for curvy body which (let's admit) is far more usual than boyish (which is perfect for lowered waistline)
As me have started with parties, I couldn't help but find and feature a dress perfect for dances. Surely, it's 50s rockabilly dress! Iconic skirt, iconic red polka dots and no sleeves. If you ask me which dress I will end up buying if I had a goal to find myself a new dress from this post, this is my winner. I love having no sleeves and closed chest. Huge skirts make me feel happy and having my hips covered makes me feel 100% secure and stylish. And after all you never know when you date invites you on a dance, right?

Did you enjoy this unusual post form me? Did you like the dresses I chose? Do you want me to analyze my pick more closely in future? All of this and anything else too is most welcome in comments.


 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

Estet Fashion Week 2021

During my time of being a blogger I hardly missed Estet Fashion Week. This year was regular in that matter, I attended it as well. Actually I am quite happy I did because I spent most of it on Zanzibar island, enjoy my sunny vacation. It was actually worthy of reduction of fashion experiences. But I was very excited to mix the two joys and still watch Estet Fashion Week and look through the styles. This time I watched gown show by Indira Badiyar who takes specialty is formal and evening dresses and super adorable kids fashion show by Oksana Kazakova inspired by vintage pieces. I have to admit I enjoyed both. My outfit is not as cool or fancy as I would want it to be mainly because after my vacation with very simple and effortless looks I didn't feel like wearing too much items, opting for simplicity. Also my skin on hands is not perfect so I wanted to cover it. It also severely limits my options of clothes because I mostly have my hands bare. It was comfortable though, I f

Not real outfit

I am SO lazy! I'm into meeting with friends and family, outdoor activities (we tried sup boards and loved it) and boat. Generally, it's mostly the boat. We get up early, walk the dogs, run and than get back to work. I also received my second shot and, oh my, brain fog is real. I wanted to update my blog anyway so I am posting photos I took during the last weekend. It's not really an outfit it's simply a cute dress I wore. To be honest I don't really feel like outfits lately, simply throwing some dress and go. I promise I will wear and take photos of this dress properly styled or something I was wearing: new and fantastically comfortable dress from Befree Certina watch handmade bracelets Border Collie Surak accessory   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

Lady in Red

I love this simple dress! It looks gorgeous with big hat, loafer mules and a small bag. At the same time it looks not worse with sneakers and a backpack (looks like a reel idea here!). In general I like simple a little naive dresses. I wore this outfit multiple times without changing anything (actually a very rare occasion to me, normally I change around things: different hat, different bag, shoes or at least jewelry). We took photos last week before vaccination. I also wore this outfit to visit my grandfather earlier and he loved it. I have to admit I feel very stylish and elegant in this outfit. Comfort level is high as well so there is not really anything I might wanted to change about my looks here. I was wearing: Monki dress (two years go) Love Moschino bag Porta shoes Uniqlo hat c/o Faberlic dog paw necklace   Have a nice day, Lyosha
