Sandra Dress by Pinup Couture


When it comes to the fashions of the 1940s and 50s, a truly striking silhouette is always key to making a lasting impression. Reproduction brand Pinup Couture rarely put a foot wrong, and their new Sandra Dress is no exception, with a knockout fifties shape.

The circle skirt is spared no expense, with plenty of fabric to create that expensive and genuine look of fifties originals. The plunging v at the neckline, combined with cute capped sleeves is effortlessly retro, without falling for the clichés. Finished with faux frog clips at the front, the contrasting black on green has a truly timeless elegance.

It's now available from Pinup Girl Clothing for $124.

Deco-style dressing table from Alexander and Pearl

This dressing table from Alexander and Pearl isn't the first we've featured that takes inspiration from the Art Deco style and I'm sure it won't be the last. The period works really well for a piece of furniture that's meant to evoke glamour. 

This piece certainly is glamorous, with its mirrored finish and curved shape. The mirror folds down flat, giving it a practical use as a table too when not required for make-up touch-ups. There are two concealed drawers too, perfect for stashing away beauty secrets. 

The table costs £625 with the matching stool costing an additional £275.
