I can't resist images of pretty vintage dresses. Flowing full skirted styles in swishy fabrics with tiny waists, there isn't anything more lady-like. Pencil skirt suiting, swing coats with generous shawl collars, wide brim or pillbox hats with netting....... it all gets my attention.

I feel much more confident and comfortable dressed up than dressed casual. This is coming from a woman who spends many days in leggings, a tunic sweater and riding boots - but my life is currently requesting a more casual wardrobe.
Along the road, women's fashion's have become increasingly 'liberating'; but it has been at the expense of forfeiting some of the demure and feminine styling. In the last half dozen years there has been a shift back to more feminine women's fashions. Designers like Elie Saab are proving the allure of ladylike dressing is what we are truly craving.
The runways and fashion magazines highlight styles that designers think will grab our interest, but tucked in the online image journals of Pinterest the truth is told. Pinterest brings the opportunity to gather images of what we really captures our attention, and glamourous vintage fashion is high on the list of fashion pins. Along with the Pin dream closets being filled with vintage, women are gravitating towards the feminine styles that designers are revisiting.
Dressing like a lady is suddenly in style again.
