It's holiday party season time. This year, my husband's company party was held at the USS Hornet which is an old Naval Aircraft carrier turned in to a Museum in Alameda, CA. The theme was Swinging 1940's. It was really a cool venue. They had old retro planes and helicopters inside, great views, tours and music. I felt transported the moment I walked in the ship, "The Singing Blue Stars" were singing "Bei Mir Bist Du Shein" in period sailor outfits. There were also a lot of guests that were in 1940's style attire...bomber jackets, fedoras, full skirts, etc. It was fun. This outfit was the closest to 1940's inspired I can find at short notice. It's a convertible dress from Anthropologie. The top can be removed and it can just be worn as a skirt.
