I have been browsing some really fantastic blogs on women who dress in vintage 40's clothing and it is so inspiring. Since I can remember, I've loved this time period. In fact, I have a bunch of CD's from the swing area that I should pull out and start playing:) I'm also going to watch a couple of vintage movies with swing dancing. I remember dragging my friend off to a big band swing dance in the 90's but when we got there we were the youngest ones. I think everyone there was retired. They were all so sweet and they were amused that we liked the music so much to come.
Here are a couple of eye catching items I found. This dress certainly puts me in the 40's. I love the richness of the colors. I would love this dress but they don't ship to the USA.

Look how fab this is a matching bag and shoes! I know it's pretty pricey but how often do you see something as nice as this? The straps on the shoe are awesome. I love this bag too! But, alas, the shoes are not my size so no more temptation needed.
