retro housewife

Since I was a little girl, I have always loved dresses and polka dots. I've been a girly girl from the start. One of my favorite time periods in fashion is the 1940s and 1950s. I grew up watching "I Love Lucy" with my mom on Nick at Nite. It was our late night routine to stay up watching Lucy's crazy shenanigans while we worked on crafts. I always adored the fashion in this show. I love the feminine dresses with flattering waistlines, the hats, the shoes, and of course, the polka dots. Lucille Ball has always been one of my style icons and I love retro inspired pieces.

Karina Dresses sent me this gorgeous Megan dress to style and I couldn't love it more. The dresses from this company are extremely flattering and they cater to every body, literally. Each dress tells you the best body shapes for the dress design. I chose the Megan because of the flattering waistline and a skirt that I can twirl in.

I gave the Megan dress a more modern look by pairing it with an oversized plaid scarf, a gold cuff, and my favorite ankle boots. This dress could easily be worn year round and that is my favorite kind of piece.

I feel like a true retro housewife in this beautiful dress. I think Lucy would approve!
