What I like most about the 50s? The glamour, of course. I love looking at old pictures of either my grandma or Hollywood movie stars. A dress that brings this glamour and elegance into our time is the striped version of the Idda van Munster 50’s Wiggle Dress by Miss Candyfloss.

A Pencil Dress designed by Idda van Munster

Just like the Wie das 50’s Tartan Swing Dress this pencil dress is another piece designed by the one and only Idda van Munster. I especially love the gorgeous details like the stripes, the black taffeta rose, and how the flaps over the tummy accentuate the waist.

To add even more glamour, I teamed the outfit with a sparkling vintage bag, vintage seamed stockings, and nylon gloves by Secrets in Lace. Rose earrings by Glitter Paradise matching the flower on the dress finish the 50s inspired retro outfit.

  1. I didn’t think it could get any better after your last few posts, but this look is sensational. The dress just wouldn’t work on me, but it is absolutely pure elegance on you. The shoes add an edgy note and it is great that you have teamed it with black rather than nude stockings. You’ve also reminded me how elegant seams with the squared-off heel can be – I think all my seamed stockings and tights have a point heel at the moment so clearly I need to add to my collection! Thanks for all your great posts! Kx
