The 1950s fashion appeals to me because of its femininity. I like skirts and dresses and only have a couple of pairs of trousers in my wardrobe. Being a visual person, I also like my everyday life to be beautiful. I am not the type to spend ages getting dressed up to the nines even though people who see me walking down the street wearing a hat and a pair of gloves may think I am off to a fancy dress party. Clothes have to be easy to wear and fit around my everyday life. I want to be able to get dressed, do my make-up and hair and be ready to go in a quarter of an hour.
