Little Raspberry Bow


I love this dress by Hell Bunny that I wore to work last week. I have such a weakness for collars (especially Peter Pan style) and little neck bows! Though most people now-a-days would nickname this style of dress a "Wednesday Addams dress", yet the collar style was very common in the; Victorian Era, 1940s and 1960s. It's interesting how pop culture makes some iconic and recognizable. *Wink*

I love fashion and am sort of a historical buff when it comes to researching garments and fashion styles. I find that fashion reflects what was happening at the time socially and economically, perhaps that's why retro and Victorian inspired fashions have become so popular. As our society becomes more casual and relaxed, people are looking back to times when dressing was an art form rather than just for comfort. 

On that note: I just watched a documentary about Iris Apfel and I recommend it to all of you.
