Sombor Tales Part Four – 50s Inspired Pencil Dress

Wow, I cannot believe we’re already up to Sombor Tales Part Four and still going strong, in my humble opinion 🙂 After my previous posts (Sombor Tales Part One, Sombor Tales Part Two and Sombor Tales Part Three) this one follows the same vibe, but with some different flair to it.

I know, I know, you should never pick favorites, and I really couldn’t call this one a true favorite, but there is just something about this one.

My guess is it was the combination of our surroundings, lights, outfit and of course, the photographer, Ana, who always manages to capture the perfect moment.

So, what is the story behind this outfit? Until now, you’ve mostly seen me in more swing type retro dresses. But, quite often I enjoy wearing pencil 50s inspired dresses as well. They maybe aren’t as comfortable as those flowy ones, but still, they aren’t difficult to wear.

As far as I’m concerned, there is no need to wait for a special occasion to wear a pencil type dress. I love wearing them during the day as much as in the evening. The ones I gravitate towards are these vintage inspired models, but with a twist. The twist lies in the choice of prints. This particular one has a Dia de Los Muertos inspired print.

The location we shot at (the Županija Park) proved to be the perfect choice for us that day and I’m so thrilled with how the photos turned out.

If you’d like to see the photos, just go ahead and scroll down! And let me know, what do you think about figure flattering dresses? Do you like wearing them and when? Would you go for a swing or a pencil type dress?

That would be it for Sombor Tales Part Four. I hope you’re enjoying the Sombor Tales series as much as I do 🙂 There’s still more more to come, but we’re slowly approaching the end of the series 🙂
