I’m finally getting caught up with my blog posts after a short hiatus. I still posted while on vacation in Texas but boy did the work pile up for me while I was gone! It’s my pleasure to show you the February 2015 box from SquareHue. I’m loving this Decades Collection boxes so far. This box brings us to the 1910s, with Tunic 1910, Kewpies 1912 and War Crinoline 1915. The War Crinoline style was the thing and Kewpie dolls came from the creative mind of Rose O’Neil. Kewpie dolls, that little naked, cherub faced baby doll made it’s way onto the scene in comic strips in 1909. Eventually the dolls would be coveted by little children everywhere, usually found as small prizes at carnivals and boardwalks. I have a small collection packed away somewhere. Not that I’m that old, but my mom started me collecting them as antiques. And the popular tunic style dress was all the rage during the Great War. More of a tubular shape dress, they seemed to create an illusion of whispier figures, and less pronounced curviness of the previous decades of fashion. It was also a way to cut back the extravagant dressing which helped the war effort. Enough of the history lesson and onto the polishes!
Tunic is a gorgeous color. It’s a soft peach creme and great on just about every skin tone.
Kewpie is that soft pink that goes great any time of year. I wasn’t sure with my pale winter skin how it would look, but I think it looks pretty nice!
Keeping with the wartime theme, War Crinoline is a very versatile green, on the cool side and goes perfectly with the other shades in this ensemble.
That’s it for this month’s collection from SquareHue. I can’t wait to see what the roaring 20s has to offer! It’s sure to be exciting!
