Every decade has its fashionable charm, but out of all the 1950s I love the most. I should’ve been born when beautiful dresses with tiny waist and flaring skirt were the everyday attire, when there was nothing sexier than a perfectly fitted pencil skirt and beauty was a full time occupation. These were the most feminine and fabulous years in the history of fashion when Christian Dior, Cristobal Balenciaga and Hubert de Givenchy were making history, while Marylin Monroe and Audrey Hepburn were shining on the silver screen.
However, the fact that I am a 90s child and grew up in dungarees or that it’s 2013 and the edgy vibe is all the rage, doesn’t stop me from wearing what I love. My wardrobe is full of 50s inspired pieces that I reach for daily. I often sew my own clothes not only because I enjoy the process as much as the result, but also because it’s often hard for me to find clothes that I really love in store.
Imagine my excitement when I discovered Fever London, a brand characterized by vintage inspired prints and feminine silhouettes. The timeless elegance of the clothes cannot remain unnoticed, these are pieces that highlight the woman’s beauty without being overpowering, fitted and flaring at all the right places.
I wish I could order their entire collection in every color, building a capsule wardrobe. I somehow managed to narrow down my wish list to five gorgeous dresses that would become staples in my wardrobe if (when) I purchase them.
Visit Fever London’s ONLINE STORE or visit them at 52 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8ED.
What’s your favorite fashion decade?
