  • So for our decades series last year we traveled back through time until the 1960s - so I decided to go back another decade and put together an entire look based on the fashion, hair and makeup trends of the 50s! What do you think of the finished look?

    A big thank you to Kayley Melissa and Gabriela Hernandez for helping us out with our midcentury makeover!

    I love that saf doesn’t just go in with whatever she wants. She actually does research and shows respect to the culture at that time

    +Ritika Juneja I feel like you want rushed videos more than well-thought out ones. If you expect to have good original content then you will wait for it.

    I know the 1950’s were a bad era in terms of women and African American’s rights, but I’ve always loved the aesthetic, especially the dresses!

    God I wish that this fashion would come back full time. The dresses, the shoes, the makeup, ugh! I love it all so much! I really wish I could wear all of this, and of course I would adore it if I could drive a teal car. I would love to wear everything about it.

  • Even though it wasnt good for blacks.... I am in love with this fashion and i too wish it would be the standard to wear dresses every day! I wear them every day!

    I think 1950's 👗 dresses made for such a graceful and beautiful lady.
