Retrofit: Borrowed from the Boys

Good news! Not only am I blogging here, I'm now contributing to the Vintage Bulleting blog. The blog is run by Carol of Dandelion Vintage (I bought these amazing lace gloves from her last year).

For my first blog post, I scanned some images from this March 1943 issue of "Life" magazine I bought last year. Women were snapping up bow ties while the men were away. Check out my first post here.

And here's the look I put together last week using that feature as inspiration:

None of it's vintage, but it's still a lot of fun. What menswear-inspired looks do you love?
