Hello Dolly!

I absolutely love Zac Posen’s Pre-Fall 2009 collection. From what I can see, it is going to be a very good year. The vintage, 1940’s inspired silhouettes are flirty and feminine, an aesthetic that is quintessentially Zac Posen. The looks are so gorgeous and glamorous, that they remind me of playing dress up!

The designer is seeking to inspire fashion aficionadas during trying times. “Saying that he hoped his show would inspire during challenging times, Zac Posen returned to the flirty, forties-inflected clothes that are his signature—and, as it happens, recall the look that was popular at the end of the Great Depression. For day, there were trumpet-skirted suits in sober wools, though Posen might prefer his customer play it carefree in a groovy eel-skin trench and leopard dress.”


Posen’s Ultra-Chic 1940’s inspired “dolls”


While you wait to get your hands on some of the fabulous pieces from Posen’s vintage-inspired collection, try your hand at these awesome “Retro Dress Me Up Dolls”. They’re the paper dolls of the digital era. I wasted an obscene amount of time dressing these dolls up yesterday. Check out my 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s dolls below. I personally think the 80’s doll is a dead-ringer for Heidi Montag in her last “music” video.
