• Old meets New

    Momentarily, I lose myself on the vintage fashion boards of Pinterest. I’ve got so much love for vintage photography and I am amazed by how easy it is  nowadays to style a throwback look.

    Sometimes I wish that women never adopted the trousers wearing trend. Subtlety and elegance are being distilled from my sex since we started wearing  trousers en masse.

    I declare myself guilty for defying one of the most historically important occurrences of our sexual revolution but I honestly believe that there is nothing more feminine than a dress with a pair of high heels.

    Last two gowns are from the one and only Ulyana Sergeenko.

    I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed creating it.

        I agree! She is so talented! I wish her clothes were more approachable in terms of pricing of course.

      It would be lovely to see more pretty dress out there. So much more feminine than trousers or jeans. Let’s revive Dior’s New Look. Embrace Tea lenght dresses for this coming Summer. Even 50s retro. Make 2016 the year when fashion changed for the better.

        I do hope fashion will change for the better Jo. Especially in terms of respecting individuality.

      Ohh, I love these looks 🙂 I have to admit, I am, too, guilty of wearing jeans all the time. I do like wearing dresses, but jeans are somehow more convenient for me… Great post xx

        Me too Kelly because of work mostly. I do try to force myself to wear more dresses though.

      I love all these dresses! I must say though, not all pants lack elegance- trousers from the 1940’s are gorgeous!
