Fifties Housewife?

Hello! I recently teamed up with local photographer Nicholas Von Thrower for a little vintage-inspired photoshoot and I cannot get over how much I love the results from our shoot. We shot several different looks including this dreamy retro ensemble. 

I'm typically inspired by sixties/seventies vintage but can't deny the distinct fifties/sixties mood of this look. I'm sort of torn between nicknaming this look "fifties housewife" or "sixties baby" because both feel so suiting. 

I started styling the look around this pretty little pink vintage number that I scored this past fall on one of my RaddayVintage buying excursions. The bright pink color, futuristic sixties silhouette and flattering fit of the dress immediately persuaded me to keep the dress for myself, instead of listing it for sale in my shop. And boy, am I glad that I did keep this beauty; I've worn it countless times since adding it to my wardrobe.

I kept it simple for this look, styling it with a pair of golden, knee-high boots and seventies vintage ring. I played around with my makeup, dressing my eyelids up with a pretty pink glitter shadow and lining my lashes with sparkling rhinestones.
