1950s Housewife ft. the Carven Top

Top: Carven, Skirt: Zara, Shoes: Topshop, Bracelet: belt by Primark; Cos & House of Harlow. Leather Cuff (alos in 1st pic: Marni), Sunglasses: Spitfire Weekend , Bag: vintage
Same as before
I wanted to take my new Carven top to the max by combining it with almost every SS12 trend there is, resulting to a slightly caricature image of the 1950s housewife.

I found it fitting to leave the curlers in for the idea of the housewife in her holiday cabin getting ready to socialize. To upp the 50s kitch factor I picked plastic Ikea cups in a bright colour for the Tupperware factor.

Sharp eyes will see I am missing one shoe, ;D, resulting into a weird cinderella-effect. Well, if my character 'the 50s housewife' has been on her cocktails, she must be slightly drunk, hence missing her shoe. In real life I have a pair: who needs a prince to bring back her shoes anyway?

Oh, I bought this skirt this winter and I was totally worried I wouldn't fit it anymore: I gained some weight because I had been on the verge of depression. Good thing the skirt still fits!

(PS: no real alcohol was used during this shoot: only a virgin mango/orange blend for vitamine C)

PS 2: I'm on a sale-announcing roll. If you like to try the Carven brand (or another fave of mine, Vanesso Bruno) you could head to mywardrobe.com as they have a secret-insiders sale going on right now of 40% all this season with MYSALEPREVIEW122  which makes this top below just €51.57 instead of the normal €130:
