dreamy

This is such a dream moment. I love it, it reminds me of illustrations from the fantastical short stories in my old 50s era womens wear weekly magazines. The kind about a young innocent girl whose talent, sweetness and beauty conquer all. The gloves, hair, makeup and the loose lines of the train of the dress all remind me of that style of illustration. I love the look of the dress it almost feels unfinished, like it’s just been draped on the mannequin, or a quick sketch of a dress, or an illustration by Rene Gruau. It all feels so dreamed up.

  1. I’ve also got a massive stash of 50s women’s magazines, mostly Woman’s Own and Woman. I’ve put some of the pictures on my own blog – if you like this picture, you’ll probably love them! Emma
