Fabulous Fifties exhibition part: I

When news cam out that there was going to be a Fabulous Fifties fashion exhibition in the Gemeente Museum Den Haag, I knew I had to be there. I figured it would be right up my alley and it turned out; it was! I was accompanied by the beautiful Tante Patent, who is not only a close friend but also a connaiseur when it comes to fashion history. We had an amazing time strolling through the themed rooms filled with fifties gorgeousness.
We talked about the pieces and made of list of which items we would want to take home (which made us very greedy haha.) These was so much beautiful fashion to take in, we actually made two rounds with a nice coffee brake in between. Of course I did my best to make pictures for you lovelies... especially the girls not living in The Netherlands, because I highly recommend visiting this exhibition if you are a fifties loving Dutch gal! So here is the first part of the snaps I made. Which piece would you take home if you had the chance?
(8) Petticoat, petticoat...in roze, lila, geel of rood (8)

Wouldn't you want to be a housewive too, when you could dress like this?

Prada s/s 2012 does 1950s

Yes, please. All of them.

We especially loved the umbrella apron

This section looked almost.... regal (L)

Tiny fifties fashion... so cute!

More lace and tulle. Of course.
