Visual Friend Friday: Decade Dressing

Cardigan: Old Navy
Dress: To The Max
Earrings:  Ruban Cassette won from Virginie's Cinema
Wedges: Payless

This weeks Visual Friend Friday is being hosted by Shelly of GS Lillian and it's about dressing in your favorite decades and I went with the 50's. I added the 50's influence with a fuller skirted dress and beaded cardigan (two staples of that decade), but still kept it modern with length. I also wore these pearl and gold button earrings from Ruban Cassette that I won from Virginie's Cinema's giveaway. Based out of Québec, designer Elisabeth Simard creates her earrings out of vintage buttons. I don't have that many button earrings, so these two are great additions to my earring collection.

I also got my haircut yesterday. Only took an inch and a half off, but not only does my hair feel 10x lighter, but I've finally gotten rid of the bad dye job I did two years ago when I tried to dye it a reddish-brown. Never a good idea to lighten you hair after you dyed it jet black two months earlier. 

What's your favorite decade(s)? Head over to GS Lillian to see what decades my fellow bloggers love.

This is a beautiful 50s interpretation. The print on that skirt is just lovely.
