Fab 40’s in Gingham


The fab 40’s gals are going for the Gingham This is especially fun and nostalgic for me, because one of the schools I attended as a teenager used this pattern for their uniform. Talk about flashback.

The weather threw a twist in my plans. When I left the house it was raining, so I figured i’d improvise with my Le Chameau rain boots. However, by the time I got where I was going, there was no rain. Hey, you never know.

Jane, Dawn, Sheela and I are having so much fun, collectively bringing to you our monthly take on style. Check us out in Gingham stylin’.

    Your leather jacket made all the difference, Dixie, and turned gingham from pretty picnic print to I-dont-give-a-damn James Dean cool.

  • Dixie, the rain is so tricky isn’t it?! The rain has now started in Hong Kong, so we can have blue skies and then all of a sudden torrential downpour. It’s fun though–and it’s time to get out my rain boots! I love yours and I love your entire outfit–mainly the jacket. So hot! And….what are you thinking for next month Dear Dixie! Can’t wait to hear. I love The Fab 40s!!

  • You are all wearing very good outfits, great figures you all have. When I got to Sheela I thought “hey? Where is the gingham?” Then I scrolled down and saw those awesome shoes. She was quite right to let them be the star of the outfit.
    Well done girls.

    • Thanks Greetje.

      These ladies are always on their game, and steps up to each challenge, brilliantly. It’s so much fun.
