In my novel Circus in a Shot Glass (to be released later this year from Clean Reads), the protagonist (Scotch) loves ’50s style clothing.
The dress on the left (yes, I realize the proportions are totally off) is based on one of Rosemary Clooney’s dresses in the film White Christmas. It’s black, has a sweetheart neckline with off-the-shoulder straps, and a mermaid hemline. My character Scotch wears the dress at point during the novel–a rather quirky scene, imo.
The second dress is one I’d imagine Scotch wearing around The Antique Boutique, the shop where she works and lives in. It would be a deep green, complementing her auburn hair nicely 😉
Like Scotch, the 1950s is my favorite period for women’s clothing. It’s fun, bringing a piece of myself into what I put on paper.
What about you? What’s your favorite period for fashion?
