1940's Fashion and Favorites

I love 1940’s fashion for many, many reasons. I love how it’s both practical and also cut out for womanly curves. It has an understated elegance and sex appeal. I fell in love with this black cocktail dress from the 1940’s. The vintage etsy shop Simplicity is Bliss was selling it and I swooned over the pictures. I just had to have this gorgeous show stopper with a darling neckline and glamorous details. I was worried initially of the size Small since vintage dresses can run even smaller. I have lost weight but no matter how much I lose, I still have womanly hips and thick thighs. I was pleasantly surprised this dress seemed suited for a smaller waist and wider hips. It hugged every curve with a confident classic femininity.

I was so in love with this dress I was inspired to share my favorite 1940’s vintage dresses from Etsy vintage shops!
