50's Pedal Pushers || Powderpuff Varla Capris

IMG_1328 copy

Chicago has such fervor for maintaining it's history & charm, and it excites and surprises me daily.  You will find rows and rows of antique preservation in this city.  In Gold Coast, stunning 1930's apartment homes line Lakeshore Drive, and bellhops and service men are at every edifice to match the ambience.  Fleurs line the entrances, and chandeliers hang from ornate lobby ceilings.  To match the vintage charm of these adorable homes, I stepped out for a stroll and coffee date wearing my favorite peddle pusher pants... Varla Capris in gingham, from Powderpuff Boutique!

It seems that all pinups are endlessly looking for that perfect 50's capri, the way vintage vixens used to wear them - showing off our curves in the most flattering way.  Ladies, the search is over!  The Varla Capris's extra high waistline is snug and authentic, while the fabric allows for the perfect amount of stretch in all the right places.  The black and white small gingham pattern can easily transition through Fall, and on chillier day's I've paired them with a chic trench coat and closed toe pumps.  For today's warmer temperature, I paired them with the epitome of demure-yet-subtly-sexy   Mademoiselle Pussybow Blouse!  I absolutely love this piece, as it's elegant 40's secretary feeling meets bombshell kitten with it's neck tie and totally sheer combination.
