    I just love the 1950’s I love the exaggerated hourglass shape, the impeccable tailoring and the gorgous embellishments. Tania (Denmark)

    It must be 20’s for me! I just adore Coco Chanel and it was her time. Oh, Coco…

    I have to second (or third?!) the classic styles of the 40s and 50s – 50s party dresses are simply lovely and shirtwaist dresses with a full skirt are so wonderful. I also love the mod look of the 60s – simple A-line dresses in Pucci prints.

    my favorite vintage fashion has to be the cute, girly dresses from the 40s and 50s. Everyone always looked so put together!
