Whoopsie Daisies! It's Fifties Fever

This is a mammoth post to make up for the lack of posting in the past two days. And there's a definite 50s-housewife theme to it. What is it about Christmas that brings out the hostess-with-the-mostess in me? I spent most of my last two days at work making everyone a 3D Christmas tree out of cardboard and tinsel and slaved over my mixing bowl making banana cake.

Check out Posh Girl Vintage's authentic 50s dresses. I just cannot get over the colour, the teeny tiny waists, the frothy fabrics. There's only one classic silhouette that is synonymous with the 50s - a boatneck or a cap sleeve, a cinched waist, and a full, petticoated skirt. The prevalance of this shape during this era is linked to the rigid gender roles during this period and the emphasis on uniformity and stability post-World War. For me, it serves as a constant reminder of how clothing, fashion, and style are intrexicably linked to the manners, mores and events of its time.
