The Blitz & it’s the 40’s all over again

Stanley_Kubrick_1940s_TheStyleFactoryBlog

My style has evolved over the years, as I mentioned in my previous post I spent most of my 20’s dressed and inspired by the fabulous 80’s, wearing structured jackets, dresses with pad shoulders, glitter and big hair. As I have got older I’ve  developed a fascination for 1940’s fashion,  for elegant and flattering outfits which are so distinctive in this decade, beautiful summer dresses in flower and polka dot prints, knee length skirts, structured belted jackets with pad shoulders and coats with fur trims, there was so much attention to detail from head to toe, it started with the immaculate hairdo, then  outfit and accessories, such as round sunglasses and last but not least, stockings.

The photo above is a beautiful shot that simply captures the era, it was taken by my favourite film director, a genius and film master, Stanley Kubrick.

Last month I celebrated my 30th birthday, I am officially a lady so what better than a stylish party in which my friends and I get to dress up in my favourite era,  it’s the Blitz Party! a once every three months event hosted at a secret location which is revelled only a few days before the party.

It is one of the best parties I have been to, there was an incredible live band playing all night, characteristic cocktails of the decade and people dressed in fabulous outfits, everyone really made an effort and dressed up in 1940’s,  it was a very fun night and having my friend Leroy there to photograph this incredible evening was the cherry on the cake.

I highly recommend The Blitz Party, do not wait until the lat minute to book tickets because it is  a very popular night and it sells out quickly, you will love to be a sailor, soldier or an elegant lady from the 1940’s.
