This 1940's Womans Wardrobe from Glamor Daze intrigued me.  Now that I've paired down my wardrobe to my favorites, it's time to evaluate what's missing that is necessary.  I need a good evening dress, and an afternoon dress, and a couple street dresses.  A couple outfits on my list weren't suitable for what I had intended, so I've taken them off the list and out of my closet.  So, now my list looks like this:
I can add the blue floral wrap dress under town/visiting.  The lavender calico dress will go in under house dresses.  That leaves 4 openings to be filled, and an evening dress too ; )

Wow. The panty part...that is so sparce oh my. Do my dressy Madrid style Birkenstocks count as street shoes? *smile* That is all I wear these days with my back paining me. They are dressy, feminine ones though.

I enjoyed this list, I need help simplifying.

These things intrigue me too. I just love the 40s time period. So glad you liked the pic of the red dress I won in your give away last year, we all think it's adorable. : ) Thank you again Eva!

Bless you!
