*Rosy’s Knockout* Stylo is a resemblance of the retro pin up style from the 40’s, specifically representing ‘Rosie the Riveter’, a story that highlights the effort and strength of the hard working american women during War World II. Rosie is a cultural icon of that time represented by a woman wearing a red bandana and working attire. I am a big fan of strong women and I have a lot of respect for the ones who have changed the course of History.
This week I was in a mission looking for a berét in a unusual color and I decided to go to the Burlington Coat Factory in Wayne, NJ. They used to have a big selection on different kind of hats. When I got there I saw a bunch of clearance racks, and since I couldn’t find my hat I decided to go through those racks to see what they had. I love getting leggings in different colors and patterns from the usual black and gray, so I spotted the winter leggings that I am wearing and they immediately caught my eyes because of the color. I also have been looking for a plaid shirt for a while, and I found this one since the colors caught my attention right away. But it wasn’t until I got home that I noticed the shirt and leggings went together. Then my red pumps popped in my head and of course ‘vintage’ and ‘retro’ words with it. That’s how the whole look came up, including adding the bandana and the black eyeliner/red lips makeup. I feel this is a comfy but very eyecatching look for those who love the vintage and retro pin up influence in their outfits.
