Can anyone help with inspiration for a 40's / 50's casual daytime look?

'cause I'm at a bit of a loss!

Anyone know of any good blogs or whatever that I can swipe some ideas from, I seem to be failing to find much confused

Also I look at shops like Freddie's Jeans and Vivien of Holloway and then see how they have styled items and then look for similar on eBay. Today I'm wearing high waisted sailor jeans which came from QVC via eBay bnwt and a navy and white pussy bowed top and matching cardigan.

I have quite a few of the swing dresses from here which I wear with a cardi, tights and ballet flats for daytime. Had many compliments and the dresses are v reasonable.
