40's Fashion Fun

We’ve been watching some Foyle’s War recently (review here), and I was very much looking forward to the episode “War Games” with Emily Blunt. I had heard that her costumes were beautiful, and I wasn’t disappointed!

I still haven’t figured out what the print on the above dress is, but it’s very cute. She also has lovely hair styles, particularly her up-dos. (Though I didn’t get any good pictures. Maybe I’ll do a hair post someday featuring her…)

They had such cute clothes in the 40’s! :o) Her character keeps bees, too, which was a personal inspiration, cause I’m getting ready to study-up on bees for when we get them in the spring. :o)

I think the above dress might be my favorite, and maybe one day I’ll recreate it (or make something similar). The fabric is so darling, and I love the ruffles and buttons! It has ties in the back, too, and I love dresses with pockets! :o)

So that’s my little rant of the day. Hope you enjoyed!


  1. Whoohoo! 40's party. I'm there. With a pocket dress. :O) And I'm with you about her hair. Even prettier up.

  2. Her dresses are quite charming :)

  3. You're going to keep bees? How wonderful!

    I can't wait for the "hair" post.


Please comment - it will make my day! :)
