Out of stock

There’s no label, but this beauty would fit up to a US size 6. Measurements, taken flat, are:
If you ask me, this dress would look perfect with these timeless Kate Spade chunky heels in a neutral taupe.
You can tell from the shape of this dress that it’s early 1940s as opposed to later in the decade. This handy guide from Central Casting makes it easy to nail down the exact vintage of 40s fashion!
Here’s the trick! This dress features a broad shoulder with a tapered waist and an A-line skirt! Dresses from later in the decade were more streamlined and nipped at the hemline.
For an authentic look and feel, pair this with some cute vintage lingerie, a pair of nude sheer stockings, and a dainty pair of heels. Or wear it your own way with fishnets, a pair of Doc Martens, a fisherman’s cardigan, and a smear of red lipstick. Just because a dress came from a certain era doesn’t mean you can’t wear in a thoroughly modern way that is all your own!
