Last night a group of went to a talk on 1950s fashion, as part of 'Pop to Popism' at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The exhibition is about pop-art (mid 50s to mid 70s), and is a great reason to get dressed up!
Sarah Doyle (amazing vintage maven and friend) gave an interview about her wardrobe and wearing vintage everyday - something a lot of us can resonate with.
I wore Re-Mix wedges and 1950's printed dress, that looks a little bit like a Mexican handpaint. The bodice is cut on the diagonal to take advantage of the stripey pattern.
Jakk wore her (in)famous rooster shirt - a 1940s repro by SunSurf. Guys always go wild for her shirt when she wears it.
Plus - there was a band and dancing afterwards!
The Art Gallery has a few more talks and free events on for the duration of the exhibition, so check them out if you're nearby.
