Linking up with Freckles in April.
When I visited my Pinterest Style Board, I realized that it wasn't exactly down to earth, achievable looks. It was more of a smattering of 50s and 40s inspired photographs and fashions.

All the full skirts, mid length dresses, high heels, done up hair - so beautiful and dressy. Before I opened my closet, I looked at a bunch of great 50s looks on Pinterest, and even broke out a few family photos.
|My grandma in the 50s. Isn't she gorgeous? The answer is yes.|
|Grandma dressed up like the Gibson Girl for her wedding.|
Skirt: a store we no longer have here called Gadzooks (probably bought in 2002)
Shirt: a hand-me-down from years ago - Gap
Pearls: Aspen Traders
Necklace: It was my great Grandma's. Vintage costume jewelry.
