The Fab '40s
I attended a '40s themed birthday bash for work yesterday and ransacked my closet trying to find something to wear. I settled upon this Alexander Wang dress, which I belted to accentuate the waistline ( according to some '40s fashion sites, this was the look of the day). Although the hemline was a little short for the era, I thought the drapey folds fit the look well and looked like something a 1940s cocktail singer might wear. It was pretty awesome walking into Cicada Club and seeing all the guests dressed in their finest '40s gear--big fur coats, military-style uniforms, the guys in vests and narrow-brimmed fedoras. I absolutely love theme parties as it's such a good excuse to get dressed up and get into the party spirit.
