Trend Report: The Fabulous 40s

The 1940s was a time when beauty and glamor reigned supreme. Long flowing dresses, perfectly coiffed hair, red lipstick, and structured suits topped with gorgeous hats. Imagine walking into a room when everyone is dressed in their very best, the people are beautiful, the music is romantic and live and everything is…fabulous.
