Inspiration Friday, 1940's Sailor Outfits

I discovered these super adorable images of girls in sailor outfits by Alfred Eisenstaedt while browsing around the Life archives. Check these treasures out...







Found here

1940's sailor dress heaven, if you ask me!  These pictures have only made my sailor obsession worse, hehe.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Jonny and I are going to pick up our new basset puppy Loretta. Yay!!! Pictures of her soon ;o)

A la mariniere?! I am definitely with you on this one. So feminine and chic.

Treasures indeed! I sometimes wonder how could the fashion become worse; I mean, nowadays so many girls wear so tiny and bad fitting clothes just to show their body, when back in the day these type of clothes you've posted better embraced the body and showed the feminine side of girls.

Gifts indeed! I sometimes wonder how could the fashion become worse; I mean, these days so many ladies use so small and bad suitable clothing just to show their body, when back in the day these type of clothing you've published better accepted our body and revealed the womanly side of ladies.
