50’s Stylin’

by Lee Oliveira on October 15, 2010

You have no idea how happy I was when I saw this beautiful woman wandering the streets of Newtown walking her dogs. Such a 50’s inspiration and please take a closer look at her hair style. Gorgeous! The street was packed full of people but she stood out with her look and her poodles. I was actually on the opposite side of the road so I had to run and dodge traffic to catch up with her. I almost got run down by a car. (I am ok!)  When I caught up to her I jumped in front and said “Hello!!”… hahaha. She was so calm with the sweetest voice ever. Meanwhile.. I jumping like popping popcorn with happiness. She didn’t want me to take her photo but I insisted. I had to show you all how stylish she was.

I adored her 50’s dress. I love the little details including the multiple spaghetti straps and the print on the bottom half. I assume back in those days the dress and print were very fashion forward.

I have a real appreciation for vintage pieces but its a little difficult at times to find girls on the street wearing the right combinations. When I find it, I can’t wait to feature it here. Remember Maddy from Maddy on Bourke? She was another one of my vintage catches.

I felt guilty because I didn’t have any treats for Buddy (black poodle) and Marcel (white poodle) but I did give them a little attention too.

Thanks Sarah. You are super stylish.

my favorite part of this is the creative hairstyle. graphic prints in black and white add a touch of sophistication. however, the icing on the cake is that she doesn’t look overdressed (for walking the dogs) or costumey at all. love, love love…

Yes, she IS gorgeous. And so are her poodles–also one of the smartest of dogs, perfectly suited to this young lady. I am fortunate to see her quite regularly at the vintage fashion markets and fairs I sell at.
