From the '30s-'70s: Dress Like Your Favorite Vintage Babe

From the '30s-'70s: Dress Like Your Favorite Vintage Babe

I adore my wiggle dress from Unique Vintage. It reminds me of Joan from Mad Men. I love seeing Marilyn, Liz and all the other starlets in the '50s and '60s looking radiant and show stopping in these dresses. It made me think of my favorite muses over the years and their gorgeous styles. 

Whether you want to channel a slinky siren 1940's vibe or a groovy casual look from the 70's, I picked some of my favorite style inspirations from the '30s-70s. I also picked an outfit from Unique Vintage for each decade that will make you look like you stepped out of the pages of a vintage Vogue.
