Stop Staring! 40’s Inspired Fashion

Today’s post is inspired by women’s retro dresses and my love of the 1940’s era when Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, Ava Gardner and Susan Hayward ruled the Silver Screen, while most women imitated them, wearing simple, formfitting outfits with matching hats/snoods and gloves. And those hairstyles … to die for!

One of my favorite online stores for “new vintage” is Unique Vintage. The site sells the most fabulous retro-inspired dresses for the modern gal. Unique Vintage is where I stumbled upon the label, Stop Staring, and I fell in love! Stop Staring makes the sexiest, yet timeless and classic dresses – and I can’t get enough.

The following look is my modern take on the 40’s style. The dress is by Stop Staring and it is my favorite wardrobe staple for Sunday brunch with friends, an intimate dinner with the husband, or a walk in the park (yes, I will find any excuse to dress up!).
