I just love everything about the era,so keeping in theme with today's Nifty Fifty Blogfest, I am going to attempt to list 50 things I love either, about the 50's or things inspired by the 50's. (Eeeek.)
1. Rockin' Around the Clock
Let's start with a party. The music from the 1950's was so much fun. I can remember dancing around to this song as a child, with my older sister. (By dance, I mean more jumping around, attempting to do a jive of some sort. And by child, I mean...I still do it now.)
41. Pin Up Girls
Although pins up date back before the 1950's, the girls of the 40's and 50's offered a new brand of girls.
42. Swim Wear
For Luna have a great range of swimsuits in this style, I bought this one for my holiday to California last year. I love it.
43. Vintage Clothing
Peekaboo vintage online store has a great collection of clothes from yesteryear; 1950 dresses included. Time to get the credit card out.
To add to the glamour of an outfit, hats were the perfect option, especially in the early fifties. As the decade went on, and hair styles changed, wearing a hat wasn't always suitable, for risk of ruining a new bouffant. (A girl has to have her priorities.)
And with the change in hair, came a change in fashion. Hats were off.
45. The Clutch
46. Soap & Glory
More 1950's inspired than 1950's but I love this stuff. The packaging is cute, it smells gorgeous and looks pretty in my bathroom.
47. Elvgren to Banksy
49. Ice Cream Parlours
So go on, treat yourself to some ice cream. I'm going to.
