Monday Morning Inspiration: 50s Girly Glamour

In case you missed it, February's issue of Elle printed a 50s-inspired editorial full of classic girly glamour.  



The seductive silhouettes pay homage to sultry classic beauty a-la Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor.  To say this editorial filled me with delight would be a massive understatement.


  A 50s-inspired aesthetic seems to be among many collections this spring. Designers are expanding the aesthetic from the simple, clean lines of cinched-in boxy jackets with below- the- knee full skirts first introduced by Christian Dior in the early 1950s. (See this post for more on Dior).   Using this spread as inspiration, I collected my favorite feminine spaces full of soft pinks, florals, and June Cleaver-esque interiors for your viewing enjoyment.

  10. So pretty. When I was a kid I wanted to live in the 50s so bad. I thought for sure in my next life I'd wear poodle skirts and date a rebel.
