1940's New York Bride

The lovely Dervla sent us her pictures of her New York wedding last year. 
Dervla chose a beautifully chic 1940's rayon dress with lace trim peplum for her intimate wedding in Central Park.
Both Dervla and the dress looked stunning all set in our favourite city!

How to add a splash of colour to your wardrobe

If you are anything like me you probably have a section in your wardrobe dedicated solely to black!
Even though I'm an avid fan of colour I'll often turn to my old reliable black clothes when either the weather or my mood is a bit on the gloomy side!

For some, black is the running theme of their wardrobe and I'm here to say "introduce a little colour". 
Ease yourself into it gently, make like the ladies of those bygone eras and add a navy glove, nude hat or cream shoe.

Then once you are comfortable really start to mix it up! Team that little black dress with a pair of 1950's cobalt blue gloves, or a 1940's fuchsia pink hat or a 1960's patent mustard bag.

When you're really in the swing of things you can play around with pattern. Wear a 1950's floral scarf with your black pencil dress for instant panache or a tartan jacket for a fashion edge.
Go mad and throw on some red and white polka dots with a slick of red lipstick and you are on to an instant winner!

Dirty Fabulous is a treasure trove of colour and below is just a snippet of the vivacious hats, gloves and bags that we have in stock along with some images to show how accessories would have been worn originally.
