retro moment: the 40s







photos via pinterest, google


Does anyone else remember American Girl dolls? I loved all of them, but unlike most of my "Samantha" friends, my favorite was always Molly. She was from 1944 - I read all the books, had tons of her accessories, and even had her WWII wartime-themed cookbook. (Waldorf Salad, anyone??)


I mean, how awesome is her mom's hair??

Anywho.. ever since my American Girl doll days, I've been enamored with the fashion and beauty from the 1940s. So when I started to see 40s-inspired threads popping up this fall, I was thrilled. Here are some of the classic trend staples to to add to your wardrobe this year!

Remember - you don't have to look like you're in costume to pull this look off! One or two items mixed with modern pieces will do the trick. Happy shopping!
