1940's dressed




Can this be my favorite color? This gray meets brown, would that be taupe? I don't like that name so much, can we rename 'taupe', can we call it 'dusk'? Can we call it 'clay'? This dress is making it's debut today, it was a Christmas gift and is only now getting worn. I love how 1940's dresses fit and make a woman look, they do a great job of hugging what's small and forgiving what's not. I think that that era of clothing, along with the 1950s is the most flattering to a woman's figure without constraining it, I feel a little bit like I am in a play today. This is probably because I used to be in plays/musicals and many of them were set in the 1940s and I got to dress like this a lot.

that colour is hard to pin down - it looks a bit pinky as well, so perhaps, rose clay? it's lovely, so soft and flattering.
