1950's Shirtwaister for #PassionforFashion

We actually had a sunny day, two weeks ago today exactly.  I quickly grabbed my sunglasses and struck a pose - I've been missing the natural light for outfit photos!  I was off to visit a friend and her newborn baby, and she's quite a stylish arty type so I thought I'd better make myself look presentable.

1950s shirtwaister

I'm linking up again today with Passion for Fashion, so head over to either Rachel the Hat or Lena B to have a look at what everyone else is blogging about today!

A shirt dress is so easy to wear, don't you think?  Perfect for dressing up or down.



 Dress: 1950's vintage ('Texas' shirtwaister)
Cardigan: Collectif
Ankle boots: J Shoes
Sunglasses: Gift

  5. You look adorable, darling!
    The red embroidered cardigan is fabulous. It reflects spring, therefore I'm loving it.
    (might I notice the sunshine around you - I'm a bit envious, since we're having clouds and a good chance of rain)

    Many hugs

  6. Oh please send some sunshine my way. Your outfit is just lovely and love those sunglasses. I've been on the hunt for a new pair for the next summer.

  7. It's such a fabulously easy to wear piece! I sport shirtwaist dresses more often than any other style in my daily life. For a while, I wore one (80s does 40s) floral print one so often, the postman even commented on how it must have been a favourite of mine (because he saw me open the door in it so often).

    Many happy congratulations to your friends on their new bundle of joy!

    *PS* You look terrific - that cardigan is making me go weak in the knees (want/love!).

  8. I love that cardigan! So cute. Red and black is one of my favorite combos. Shirtwaists are one of my favorite dress silhouettes. You look fantastic!

    1. Thank you Paulette, red and black is never a shy look, so you have to feel confident to wear it I think! Some days I go for something a bit more subtle! P x
