Fashion Rewind: 50's and fabulous!

It is often said that history repeats itself, and in the case of the fashion world, this statement proves undeniably true. Researching for a 50's inspired costume idea made me realise that many trends still prevailing this season are heavily inspired by such trends as A line longer skirts, Alice bands, polkadot patterns and colourful pumps, all prominent of the 50's. In celebration of the 50's and as a helpful guide to those who may need it, I have recreated some of the hottest 50's looks using actual affordable pieces from new season lines of popular chain stores; Myer, Portmans and Forever New. Move over Audrey and make way for the new age fashionistas! Warning cuteness overload may provoke some serious fashion envy!

number 3 is definitely my ultimate favourite and I even own a really similar pink dress. unfortunately without that cool chain-datail though but my dress has a slim belt which is nice too. oh, and those platforms are awesome too!
ps. looking forward to your new giveaway, dear :)
