world war II nurses and plans for the week...

Although my posts have been few and far between at the moment I honestly have been working :) including dealing with bits and bobs for my etsy shop. I really hope to have it up and running really soon, I'm nearly there with it all!

I'm also super excited about plans for the next few days (well Friday onwards really). It's my birthday on Friday and my Ma and I will be heading off to Vintage at Goodwood. I really can't wait and have been trying to decide what to wear all day, alongside doing uni work of course! I'll keep it a surprise for now. I'm spending Saturday with the boy and then on Sunday a few us are going to All Star Lanes on Brick Lane which is an awesome American Diner which also has a bowling alley. They do amazing milkshakes in there so it should be a giggle.

Sorry, no outfit posts this week, so instead I thought I'd share some of my dissertation research with you. I am currently doing an MA in History and Culture of Fashion and have chosen to research the evolution of nursing uniforms primarily around WW2. I can't share my personal research images unfortunately but here are some that I found online which are pretty cute 

This last one is my favourite. I think nursing uniform looks so glamorous, seems such a shame that nurses today just wear pyjama style overalls, though I'm sure they are much more comfortable and practical!

  1. I was just talking about this the other day! If I were a nurse, I would fo sho wear a cute little white nurse dress and hat rather than scrubs.
