Dress to Impress!
Hey peeps, Cupcake Lisa here! With our 1940's evening, Puttin' on the Blitz looming we are busy busy with preparations to make it another night to remember. Flags, bunting and propaganda posters will be hung in every available space and the band stand will be decked out with camouflage netting, barbed wire and all sorts to ensure the room is as authentically dressed as we can possibly manage. But it's always the guests who come along to our evenings who transform the room, with their attention to detail in dressing for the occasion (see above)! What fabulous outfits we have seen at the last two events! With the chaps wearing suits and military dress and the ladies looking every bit the 40s sweetheart in tea dresses, seamed stockings and pearls. One of the guests at the last event said that she felt getting ready for the event was all part of it and she loved having the opportunity at having a go at the 40s look.
So for those joining us for the first time, here's a few pics for inspiration!
You're sure to have something in your wardrobe that you can customise or pair up with other items to create the look. Or why not go have a rummage in your local charity shop?! You're sure to find a hat, gloves, braces, a brooch or if you're lucky, an outfit, that will be fit for the Forties!
Can't wait to see you all there!
