My fab Miss Selfridge number

I adore this Miss Selfridge print dress it has a 30’s/40’s silhouette to it. It is very W.E , the trends of those times were bold prints and sharp tailoring. A woman would exude a lady like mannerism through her clothes ,men were very smart too and would wear hats. There was a real respect and effort in those times that were made,you would visit the tailor or dressmaker if you were lucky enough to afford it. As it was Wallis Simpson’s favourite designer I have included some beautiful costume pieces by Elsa Schiaparelli.
