Looking like a Movie Star from the 40s with the “Rachel Pencil Dress” by Voodoo Vixen

Rachel Jensen from the blog Chicago Chic is one of my biggest inspirations. She always looks so ladylike and glamorous. So it’s no wonder that I was over the moon excited when I saw that she designed a dress for Voodoo Vixen. Well, actually she designed two dresses and one amazing skirt.

All three garments are made of warm fabrics. But as much as I love the swing dress and the skirt, there is nothing that can beat a pencil dress in my point of view. The “Rachel Pencil Dress” has so many gorgeous, authentic details like the buttons and a removable fake fur collar that you will feel like a movie star from the 30s/40s. The dress is a bit longer than my others, but I really love the length, and the beautiful tartan pattern is just perfect for fall. In this blog post, Rachel talks about her inspiration for the designs.

Of course I had to wear my most elegant accessories with such an amazing dress. Therefore my “Diamond Heel” stockings by Secrets in Lace, long gloves, and a hat complete my 30s/40s inspired vintage look.

Our location this time was the beautiful city Landsberg am Lech. The city is located about 50 km in the west of Munich and definitely worth a visit. It’s not the first time that we took our pictures there, here are more examples:
