A Night in the 40s Dance - USO Fashions

CAF's "A Night in the 40s" big band dance is coming up this Saturday, and so I thought it would be fun to post a few USO inspiration photos in preparation for the dance! There are always a mix of outfits at these dances--everything from cocktail and evening wear to more casual day frocks and uniforms.

This year I'll be wearing something special from V Vintage, here's a little hint of my outfit:

I'll be appearing as Betty Grable, and sitting in the O-Club section with my dear friend Rose (co-owner of Matilda's Vintage Closet.)

Will any of my local followers be attending this year? For those of you who live elsewhere, will you be attending any similar events? I'd love to hear all about them!

  1. I started swing dancing and every time there is a live band, we all get dressed up. Usually, I'm the only one in seamed stockings and victory rolls, but thats because I'm a die-hard.

    I'm sure you'll look lovely. you always do! Have Fun!

  2. love these images! Wish I could attend to see you as the best Betty Grable ringer ever!

  3. Sounds like an awesome event!! I'm sure you will look lovely!!

  4. Our branch of the CAF in MN has their hanger dance in May! I have worked with the CAF for a few events. They are always my favorites. I will be posting photos when it gets closer to the event! Love your photos!

  5. I love that last dress the best of all. That first look is something I'd love to wear too. That top with the stars and the little bow is just too darling. My favorite looks here are worn by such pretty gals.
