I always get a lot of style inspiration from the 1940s: I really love the simple elegance of this time. Thanks to my red swing skirt by The House Of Foxy my outfit is perfect for both, evening and daytime.

In this blog post I showed a perfect daytime combination, here you will find a glamorous evening look. This time I decided to wear the skirt with a black top and only a few accessories. Earrings, bracelet, and handbag – everything is true vintage.

With an outfit like this, you are perfectly dressed for the day, but in the evening, I want a little bit more glamour. Authentic fully fashioned nylon stockings not only keep you warm during a cool night, but also add that certain something to your retro outfit. Mine are by Secrets in Lace and manufactured on the same machines used in the 40s. As soon as you slip in those back-seam stockings you will feel like a true vintage lady. I really love the details on the heel and of course the name: Natalie Diamond Heel. I mean, every girl loves diamonds.

  1. I had no idea that you could find authentic stockings with an alternative design like this on the heel – I assumed authentic always meant a point or Cuban heel. I will definitely seek these out – they are beautiful! But Sandra I will never be able to model them as stylishly as you. By the way, I know what you mean about feeling special and vintagey when you pull on a pair of proper stockings. I keep my fully fashioned stockings for special occasions – seamed tights do the trick at other times – and that adds to the sense of ‘dressing up’! Thank for such lovely photos! Karen x PS. I am looking at my blogs to distract me from the Brexit gloom

    1. Thank you so much Karen!
      I really love the stockings by Secrets in Lace – they are amazing!
      It’s a black day for all Europeans. I’m very sad about the Brexit, not sure what this will mean for all of us 🙁

      Sending you a lot of love and best wishes!
      Sandra <3

      1. Sandra – Thank you so much. Brexit gets more depressing by the hour. and I have had messages from friends and colleagues from all over the world. For professional as well as personal reasons I have to stay in touch with what’s going on, and the truth is nobody knows. On the bright side, you have encouraged me to seek out Secrets in Lace – such little luxuries will become ever more important, I suspect. I am still a European! Karen xx

        1. Of course you are still European!!
          I hope this won’t affect you too much…
          But I’m very happy you like Secrets in Lace, I have more beautiful stockings to show on my blog soon. 😉

          Many hugs
          Sandra <3

  2. Gorgeous outfit! I love that, to some causal observers, it might seem like a somewhat understated look, but the fashion loving eye quickly sees that it is rich in marvelous details. From that beautiful needlepoint handbag to the diamond design on the seams of your classic stockings, this look is a powerhouse of appealing touching and timeless charm – which looks completely marvelous on you, I should add.

    Many hugs & happy weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  3. Hallo Sandra, was ist der UNterschied deiner „Natalie Diamond Heel“ Strümpfe zu denen im Store bei Secretsinlace ??
    wenn ich beide genau anschaue sind die „Diamonds“ bei deinen weiter auseinander, bei denen im Onlineshop sind diese ineinander ??
    Grüsse Oli
