1950s Wiggle Skirt

Today I thought I’d finally get my 1950s wiggle skirt out of my wardrobe and see if there was anything I could wear it with.  I ended up pairing it with a pair of black seamed stocking (from the Warehouse for only $16!) and a blouse from Smoove Reworked Vintage.  The shoes are from the 1940s and made of velvet.  I recently got the shoes resoled because they were really slippery on the bottom.  They are NOS (New Old Stock, which means they are true vintage but never worn!).

This outfit is kind of a mix and match of 50s and 40s.  I tend to have more 40s style clothes in my wardrobe.

I’m not sure if I really like it.  I bought the skirt last year and I think the colour wasn’t really what I expected.  It is a sandy colour and sand isn’t really my colour…which is why I have paired it with dark shoes and stockings.  I also don’t like the way it fits.  It just doesn’t fit properly and doesn’t really look like a 1950s wiggle skirt on me.

    1. Haha, I know what you mean. Honestly it’s not really my colour. And it is a few inches to big around the waist for me. That’s why I’ve never worn it. It’s probably the first time it’s seen light since I bought it! 😀 Thanks for your honesty – no need to be sorry at all!
