OUTFIT POST: HOW TO WEAR A 1940'S RETRO INSPIRED ROMPER

Good morning guys! We're halfway thru the week so you should be happy. When you least expect it it's already Sunday and you're having a hangover from all the weekend's partying woohoo. 

Yesterday I shared with you the details of my retro inspired romper or like my friend Hans says, shorteralls, whichever suits your fancy best. Today I'm showing you the complete look. The "shorteralls" are Leifnotes from Anthropologie, shoes are from Massimo Dutti (most comfortable heel ever), necklace is vintage, sunglasses are from Stradivarius (I Think), and the fedora I bought at Scotch & Soda. Like I mentioned in the outfit details post, I would love to wear this outfit with an actual vintage or vintage inspired turban and retro looking Prada sunglasses. Wouldn't that be awesome (red lips, cat eyeliner, and massive amounts of mascara of course). 

This outfit is specially flattering for those women who wish to create the illusion of a curvier figure. Why? Because it has an hourglass silhouette (defined waist, loose bottom, and volume around the shoulder areas). Also flattering for women with a triangle shape body because the sleeves help to create the illusion of a more proportionate figure. In overall a very feminine, womanly, but also playful look. 

Hope you like it! Have fun creating outfits yourself. Remember, you never know who you might end up inspiring with your own creativity. Believe it or not there's always someone watching you.

Thank you Jennyfer! I'm glad you like it. This romper is really flattering because it looks very much like a dress. It's not too short, it's not baggy, and the cut is very feminine. Hope you got inspired to try something yourself! See you around
