So you’ve found your dream dress…and it’s a fun 1950’s retro-style shortie! So what accessories to choose?
If you want to pull off the complete 1950’s look you’ll need some fabulous shoes – after all, they are actually going to be on show unlike the full-length gowns! Marcie by Harriet Wilde are the actual shoes the model is wearing and the tulle netting perfectly captures the fun spirit of the 1950’s. Harriet Wilde’s cute clutch Pearl is a perfect match in fabric and style. The 1950’s saw a huge surge in popularity for the crystal ‘tiara comb’ – that’s a hair comb where the decoration stands up at a 90 degree angle (like a tiara!). Urban Angels Comb 30 is a good example of this style – just pop it into your beehive and you’re ready to rock!
