1950s fashion: How Julia and Catherine might have dressed

I wanted to share this little bit of Friday frivolity – these images are from this website selling custom-made frocks – and I thought just how much this range was inspired by the 1950s.

I can certainly see my character Catherine Cavendish in the little black number – and Julia in the two full skirted cocktail dresses. (Referencing my Belleville family series.)

That’s the fun of writing fiction ….. creating the characters and imagining how they would dress, where they would live, what they would drive …. it’s all part of creating the fictional world.

Check out my Belleville books
