Let's Hear it for Hepburn!
Is there anything better than watching vintage movies? The damsels in those movies could get away with some seriously dramatic moves. Slinking into the room while wrapped in a fur just doesn't seem at home in blockbusters anymore. And when female characters get bad news, they almost never faint either. Of course, we're glad that female characters have come along and become stronger and more sensible. But it's so much fun to revisit those films. What we need to do is take on that 30's and 40's persona from a strong female perspective. Become a smart Army general with a trans-Atlantic accent, stunning retro style, and maybe throw in a little cat-eye as well. While we wouldn't suggest plucking your eyebrows as much as those actresses did back in the day, we're pretty sure you'll do a fabulous job donning this retro style, dahling!
Design & Details
This lovely Made by Us, fit and flare dress is an instant sassy hit. The army green look has gold buttons securing down the front as well as gold buttons on the button flaps and collar. A sash ties around the waist, slipping through belt loops. You'll find the little details like the embroidered gold stars and faux pockets add plenty of charm to your look. Topped off with a jaunty cap, this costume looks amazing with a victory roll hairstyle and a brazen red lip.
Over There and Over Here
Are you ready to get into a retro mindset? You'll feel it as soon as this costume arrives. The fit and flare cut of this dress will make you want to jump onto the dance floor. Whether you're swing dancing to jazz music like a soldier on leave or you're working in the war room, this costume will bring your retro musings to life!
