Outfit | Dramatic 40s Look - Retro Sonja
September 1, 2014

Hi sweeties!

EN: Those of you who’ve been following me for a longer time, might already have guessed what I went doing in this outfit… Yep, I went to a Caro Emerald concert again! This time in a lovely open air theatre in a foresty area, which totally added to the atmosphere! We were on the front row and we even practiced a little bit of our rock ‘n roll dance moves! Caro definitely owned the house! As you might know, Caro and her band play 40s and 50s style music and, as I happen to like this style very much, I always use Caro’s concerts as an excuse to play dress up! No better way to make the best use out of my vintage hat collection, right? I think this lovely specimen totally finishes my dramatic 40s look! I’m so curious to hear what you think of this look, which I wouldn’t usually wear to go grocery shopping, haha! Although I did, just after taking these shots. I got some strange looks, haha! So, what do you think?!

NL: Wie mij al langer volgt, heeft waarschijnlijk al wel een idee wat ik gedaan heb in deze outfit… Jawel, ik ben weer eens naar een Caro Emerald concert geweest! Dit keer in het prachtige openluchttheater Caprera, wat een geweldige toevoeging was aan de sfeer! We zaten op de eerste rij en we hebben zelfs nog onze rock ‘n roll dansmoves kunnen oefenen! Caro was weer heerlijk op dreef! Zoals jullie misschien weten, maken Caro en haar band muziek in de jaren ’40 en ’50 stijl en, aangezien ik daar hartstikke gek op ben, gebruik ik Caro’s concerten altijd als excuus om me helemaal over de top te kleden! Maak ik ook weer eens gebruik van mijn vintage hoedencollectie! Het hoedje maakt deze dramatische jaren ’40 look helemaal af, vind ik! Ik ben heel benieuwd wat jullie van deze look, waarin ik niet snel boodschappen zou doen, vinden! Dat heb ik trouwens wel gedaan, net na het maken van deze foto’s. Ik kreeg wel wat vreemde blikken, haha! Wat vinden jullie ervan?!

    What a magnificent look – I can only dream of this (apparently!) easy mix of sophisticated elegance. I love every last detail, as well as the top and gorgeous skirt (a great shape on you): bag, hat and veil, seams (as ever!), beautiful shoes. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Wat leuk! En wat cool! :)
    Echt mooi, elegant, back in time, love it! Het leukste vind ik hoe jij vintage en modern samen weet te combineren, want door kleine aanpassingen (zonder het hoedje en de pantys) is het een geweldig outfit van nu! :) xx, Marky
