1941 Victory Red

6:08 PM

1941 an Era with such glamour, I have always enjoyed the beauty scene in the 40's. The Classic Soft look has become a signature style of mine, which has taken a lot of practice for me to perfect & yet I still find myself trying to perfect my take on that era of glamour. It's always easier to apply more then it is to apply less, I like to go for a soft full brow, red stained lips, & a full set of lashes simple & sophisticated. I find that my love for 40's glamour came from my obsession with technicolor films. The fashion was always so classy & yet daring at times, & the make up was simple but flawless. In today's Vintage Inspired Style post I am featuring The Mistress Swing Dress in Forest Green by The Pretty Dress Company
When I first saw this dress I thought the color was absolutely gorgeous, I love the shade Forest Green especially against cream or gold tones. The fabric is on the thicker side which is perfect for this chilly California weather, it is made out of a Stretch Woven Fabric & is lined to the waist. I paired this classic 40's design with a pair of Vintage Gold Jeweled Lucite Slingbacks & my 1941 Victory Red Pin from Besame Cosmetics
The Pin worn here is a replica of a 1940's Victory Pin, worn to support our Troops. The name references the Allied Victory in WWII, the matching Lipstick is a replica shade of red that was used in 1941, during the War the Military Forces commissioned the First Red Lipstick to Women in Uniform. The Military Uniform Caps for Women in the Forces often featured a lovely Victory Red Braided Detail on the Trim of their caps. When purchasing this Lipstick & Pin Trio $5.00 is donated to the "Hope for the Warriors" Organization to support our Veterans.
