The Housewife



I don't know why, but a shirtdress and a headscarf say housewife to me. 




I guess it's not too hard to figure it out. The 50's anyone?




This dress is brilliant but I just haven't managed to get a good photo of it yet. I fell in love when I spotted it across the store (it was totally one of those - "I am buying this whether it fits or not" kinda things. And hallelujah it fits!) and have worn it a few times but nothing quite captures the utter radness.




It's sort of a Mexican/Aztec/70's/80s kinda deal. Intriguing, right? I know. Hold tight, one of these days it'll have it's moment in the sun.


Scarf: Thrifted
Dress: Paper, Scissors
Belt: Myer
Shoes: Toms

  3. You're righ it is kind of housewifey. I don't mind it though. I guess if you wanted to change the look of it I'd pair it with some boots or even sneakers and hair down. That would look "cooler" in a way. But wear it the way you wear it! And post pictures where we can see the whole look to get a better idea of it.

  15. I can already tell the print is awesome! I like the nonchalant gaze in the first photo - it fits with the 50's housewife image. ;)
