Outfit of the day – VE Day Special

Yesterday was VE Day, the day when the second world war officially ended in Europe, 75 years ago. There was meant to be celebrations all over the country but with the current situation, these were cancelled. I still wanted to do something special to mark the occasion, so I put on my handmade vintage inspired dress from Buttontin Retro and styled my hair and make up in a way that would have fitted the 1940s. I then sat in the garden with a cocktail and listened to the 1940s extravaganza live concert.

So here is my outfit. I love this dress because the style is so classic and it also has two of my favourite things on the print – vintage aircraft and poppies. I’ve paired it with my red high heels from Marks and Spencer and am wearing a petticoat from a local dressmaker to puff out the dress. What do you think?

  2. I love your outfit! Even before reading the post, I thought it was retro to the 40’s. The material and the style! Love it & the red high heels too!


  3. This dress reminds me of the movie ”Pearl Harbor”… such a beautiful and tragic movie! ♥ If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to watch it! I am sure, you will love it!
