“Domestic Goddess” – what comes to mind?
Womanly. Prim. Put-Together. 1960s. Demure. Classic. Vintage. Stepford Wives. Mad Men.
This is going to be fun.
1960s Mad Men Women – note the umbrella printed dresses and closed-toe pumps
Prada 2012 Le Voyageur collection – full of beautiful umbrella printed dresses
The key to the domestic goddess look is the flared out-puffed up bottom of the dress. This look is easily achievable with the printed dresses available in the contemporary stores like Zara and H&M.
If you wish to get more bang for your buck or longer wear out of your pieces, you may wish to put together separates – a cap-sleeved or sleeveless top and an umbrella or flare skirt. I will recommend an all-occassion umbrella skirt from Asos which I adore (and wearing in this outfit); expect me to dress it up with tights when winter comes too.
Drawing inspirations from the above, I broke some rules and modernized the sweet look by wearing a fluoro dress as a top, bright blue umbrella skirt, neon orange studded belt, closed-toe pumps, and demure clutch.
This is my seriously prim-and-proper posture 😉
