Fashion Friday - Pinup

So, for me, there is just something about 1940s and 1950s "pin-up" fashion that I just find so appealing. I have a number of 40s and 50s inspired shoes and dresses in my collection. So when I came across these pieces on Pinterest today, I had to share as my Fashion Friday!!

Yes, yes. I have a thing for black and red as a combination. No, I didn't go looking for only black/red items. I just can't help it. They compliment one another so well. There's just something sexy and alluring about the combination... the same attraction I'm sure that I have towards the pin-up styles.

What about you? Do you have a favorite fashion era?

  1. I'm all about vintage, pin-up and retro outfits! I'm drawn to the 40s through early 60s but I definitely embrace mod looks too.

    Haha..strange! I don't see any adult content!! Anyway..absolutely LOVE the 50's, with the shorts and playsuits. But can't go wrong with the 80's either..!

  4. I'm not sure if I personally have an era. I just dress in what I find comfortable and cute. But I do find this era simply adorable. And red and black do compliment each other. Great pins. :3
