'Poodles in Paris' Outfit Inspiration and Sizing Guide!

Ah, Paris in the 1950s!

Picture yourself strolling along a tree-lined avenue in the heart of Paris, passing by quaint bistros, charming boutiques, and of course, the delightful boulangeries that fill the air with the irresistible aroma of freshly baked baguettes and pastries. The city exudes a certain chicness, with its fashionable residents donning elegant vintage 1950s style outfits, oozing sophistication with every step.

Your little poodle, scarf tied jauntily around her neck, trots along beside you, catching the attention of the handsome Frenchman passing by.  Or is it you, in your 1950s style ‘Poodles in Paris’ Wiggle Dress that has sparked a gleam in his eye? Unconsciously you smooth your hand over your hip, revelling in the way your dress fits your curves so beguilingly.

The boulangeries are an essential part of the Parisian culture, and you can't resist stepping into one. The pastries displayed in the windows are works of art, from delicate éclairs to mouth-watering croissants. You order a warm baguette and café au lait, and the delightful scent of fresh bread fills the air as you sit and leaf through the pages of your Vogue Magazine, loving that your vintage inspired 1950s wiggle dress could have been lifted straight from its pages.  Christian Dior, with his ‘New Look’ and Givenchy with his figure hugging designs… it could just as easily be you, in your Kitten D’Amour ‘Poodles in Paris’ designs!

Feeling the slight breeze caress your skin you stop to envelop yourself in your ‘Poodles in Paris’ Coat, the oh-so feminine ruffles cascading over your decolletage, perfectly setting off your ‘D’Amour Woollen Beret in Cherry, perched just so atop your curls.

The fashion of the 1950s in Paris was characterized by elegance and refinement, with women embracing the iconic New Look introduced by Christian Dior in 1947. The 1950s dress silhouette was accentuated with cinched waists, full skirts, and well-tailored outfits, while men were typically seen in tailored suits and hats.  You are at one with the scene, already imagining which beautiful design you’ll be wearing tomorrow.  Will it be your ‘Poodles in Paris’ Long Sleeve Top (Burgundy) with the ‘Poodles in Paris Belted Skirt (Print)?  Or will it be the gorgeous vintage inspired ‘Poodles in Paris’ Day Dress?

As you explore the streets, you may also catch a glimpse of some famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, which has been an emblem of Paris since its construction in the late 19th century.  Paris in the 1950s was a time of cultural blossoming, with influences from the worlds of art, fashion, music, and cinema coming together to create a magical atmosphere, and it was from this scene that the oh-so chic ‘Poodles in Paris’ collection was born – the epitome of Parisienne chic!
