Halcyon Days

The title of this ensemble was inspired by the miniseries ‘The Halcyon’ which was set in the 1940s.  The costumes were gorgeous!  This dress is not true vintage but has very much the same 1940s vibe.  My favourite decade for dresses!


Outfit: 1940s style dress in navy and red floral print by Karen Walker, featuring front pockets and matching sash belt.

Shoes: Black leather T-bar heels with cutouts.

Hair: Curled and worn down, with a red flower.

Accessories: Nude hosiery, gold garnet drop earrings, vintage 1940s double heart locket with paste gems, 1940s sweetheart expansion bracelet in gilt.

Perfume: Marc Jacobs ‘Dot’.

    1. Hi Karen, thank you! It’s such a bonus when something is both stylish and comfortable to wear, the two are often mutually exclusive – but not this time! Thanks again, D xx
