Milwaukee recently hosted an event called Flying Car. Inspired by the 1950s spirit of optimism and looking toward the future, events during the week looked at how to innovate in different areas such as retail, water conversation, and technology. The mascot for the event was the stunning 1957 Chevy that you see above. Thanks to the fact that my husband (and photographer), Gerard was charged with procuring it and my father did the paint job, I had the opportunity to grab a photo shoot with it and feature some retro inspired fashion.
I really love how fashion has also taken its inspiration from the 50’s and 60’s. Right now there are so many flavors of retro with a modern twist that are really fun and flattering. I especially love my shirt dress from The Limited as it’s stylish, comfortable, and hides some of my trouble spots. Paired with a pair of chunky Calvin Klein laser cut leather Vallin sandals, it’s perfect for work or play. A great colorblock satchel from Aldo and Prada sunglasses complete the look.
