Feelin' the Forties

I am not referring to age, but to the decade. I don't usually dress with a strong or easily-discernible theme at work (gotta keep them guessing) but for some reason I was totally feeling a retro vibe today. It almost became a costume when I curled my hair, but what other hairdo could be paired with a tie-neck blouse and high-waisted pants?

Le outfeet!

Contrived catalog-esque pose. Not a professional, here, people! ;)

Making bows look like they are complicated work:

Bow and polka-dot close up!
Outfit: Necessary Objects blazer, Ellen Tracy blouse, F21 belt, NYandCo pants, Classiques Entier shoes (a new color just came out and I am in LOVE- see it here), Sophie watch, Biasia purse.

Do you ever feel the need to dress in a theme? Or do you never/always create daily costumes?
