Tales of The South Pacific Inspired Outfit

I have been thinking about literature regarding World War II in the Pacific as of late working on the family tree and thinking about my grandpa serving in the there, so I decided to showcase this Tales of the South Pacific inspired ensemble. My favorite James Michener novel happens to be this one filled with short stories that hold a great amount of truth, even to this day. These stories were not all about war, but also what happens to people when they fall in love with the wrong person, and the loneliness of being from isolated from family and friends. Or what if you have family members that are jealous when you find true love.

It was not intentional to post a dress with this theme, but after I purchased the dress on discount from Target, my friend mentioned it looked like a World War II era dress. I think the sleeves and top half of the dress certainly do, but it is a little short in the back. I am going to wear it with shorts underneath for this reason, but with the hat, this look all seemed to come together.

I used a tripod to take photos of myself wearing the 1940s inspired dress with the sunhat, which is a new favorite piece.

 

Black Lacy Dress With Sleevless Turtleneck Sweater

Today I wore the black lacy dress with a sleeveless turtleneck. A heart pendant necklace and rose tights give this outfit a bit of style.

 

The rose tights add some contrast to the black of the dress.

I love fashion and have come to express it in my own way. Skirts and dresses are two of my favorite things, and I like to pair these with print tights in the winter months.
