Going to a party for a sixtieth birthday and apparently it's 1950's and coronation themed. So I need an outfit...

But it needs to be cheap...and I need to be able to breastfeed!?

I'm lacking in inspiration...help?!

Hows about this over this with this and black peeptoes or ballet flats.

The dress is shorter than t should be but it'd do.

Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in shade #1 is a good 50s red that suits most skin tones.

Some great ideas here Thankyou. I am def getting that underskirt and actually thinking it will go under a dress I already have. I'm thinking grease-esque? Is that right?

A big swishy ponytail with a ribbon in too maybe?

Great tip on the cheap lippy too. Thankyou

yy, you could go for a grease-esque look (or preppy or glam or housewifey or whatever) 50's look. Depends on the dress TBH, what's it like?

If you want a lace covered full skirted type dress, look at Primark. They have some in at the moment, can't remember the price but it's less than £20.

Ideal if you don't see yourself wearing it again.
