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

Say 'yes' to a dress with Yesbabyonline

When you start on inspiration posts it hard to spot. At least for me. I feel like I am half awake in my bed, feeling super lazy and have to strict plans for the morning so I am hitting the 'snooze' button. I almost hear myself saying 'five more minutes' and I do mean five more minutes but I fail and hit 'show me more' button. Inspiration from online shops devour me. Yes it is budget friendly (you don't need to buy things even though you do want to) but it is not safe for your time. I can't really say I am against it, it is a good to relax and is also useful if you need to wait for your partner to finish some stuff to do. This evening it works especially well because I am waiting for my husband to finish the page. I am more or less limited by time so my online inspiration will be most pleasing. As always I wanted to set up a topic to make it even better. My topic for today is long formal dresses . Out of tons of online shop I picked the best for me toda

Summer Boat Days

Happy Summer! Summer means boat to me. Yes technically we start during the spring (mid April) and send our boat to sleep in October but the boat is the best during summer especially when it's hot. Boat is my deep love, I love water and being by it. The feeling when you are at the whelm fills me with joy. I am so happy and so blessed to have a boat at my service. Literally my father's love to boats  definitely was inherited. During summer my husband and I often skip regular work place and stroll to the boat to work from the boat. it feels better this way, half way working, half way relaxing. I feel oddly productive there as well. I wore a simple hat and my favorite summer dress. It made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Definitely perfect for summer and boat office. P.S. don't forget to apply some sun screen!   I was wearing: Forever 21 dress (old but deeply loved) hat bought on the street of NYC because I heeded a hat c/o Nordgreen watch bracelets made by husband
