Style in the Blitz

Life did not halt during the infamous London Blitz of 1940 and 1941. Nor did women cease to wear fashionable clothes simply because their city was being mercilessly bombed. Although the capital was, at one point, bombed on 57 consecutive nights, the population still continued to get up every morning and go to work, picking their way through the rubble as they did. Likewise, women still styled their hair and put on red lipstick, even though they might have had to rush to an air raid shelter before they were finished! With its relatively sombre colours yet obvious attention to detail, this Polyvore set represents the sober yet stoic mood of the British nation during the Blitz.Style in the Blitz
