What a great combination. The colors work perfectly together (Grey & blue always work as long as they are clearly different shades). Also love the double breasted vest combined with modern cut suit.
(Only thing i dislike is the rounded shirt collar. I always think that its meant for Kids and schools (just my feeling)).
“The Beatles’ leather look was started on their first Hamburg visit and completed on the second. From head to toe, they wore pink ‘twat hats’ on top of greased quiffs, black leather jackets on top of black velvet shirts or black round-collar tee shirts, and black leather trousers down to pointy black winkle-pickers or tucked at the calves into gold and silver Texan boots. […] Beyond this, they occasionally wore pink neckerchiefs. An early Beatles follower at the Cavern, Ann Sheridan, describes their neckerchiefs as ‘like a square scarf halved and tied at the back, worn on the outside of their leathers. These scarves were very popular with girls- Brigitte Bardot wore them- and the Beatles had theirs cowboy-style, pale pink, with the triangle coming down the front. No other boys wore pink then.’” -Mark Lewisohn, Tune In
Request: Hello! Can you please write an AU Robbie imagine set in the 1950s in London where the reader and Robbie have an old school romance?
You got dressed in a burgundy Swing Midi dress. It fell to your knees, and had a round neck collar. Next you put on your black, ankle strap shoes. You did your hair was shoulder length, sleek and smooth. It had a wave on your fringe, and wave at the ends. Your kept your makeup simple, having lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, and blush. It all looked natural and you were ready. You grabbed your handbag when you heard the doorbell ring.
“I’ve got it,” you announced to your parents.
“Who is it, honey?” You mother called. Both your parents got up to see who was at the door.
“Is it that Robbie boy you’ve been seeing lately?” Your father asked, skeptic of Robbie. He didn’t know much about him, and thought that every boy you spoke to wasn’t worthy enough.
You opened the door and there stood Robbie. He was in black slacks, and a striped button up. His hair was swept to the side nicely, and he was wearing new shoes. He looked handsome.
“Does this answer you question, Daddy?” You giggled. “Hello, Robbie.”
“Evening, Y/N,” he grinned, small nerves picking up. “And good evening to you, Mr. and Mrs. Y/L/N.”
Greetings were exchanged quickly. Your father jumped into asking him questions, like where he was taking you and how long you’d be out. You rolled your eyes at him. This was your third date with Robbie, and he asked these questions each time.
Robbie answered truthfully, explaining how he was taking you to dinner at a fancy diner a few blocks down. Though he didn’t have an estimated time when he’d bring you home.
“What time would you like me to bring her home, Mr. Y/L/N?” He asked politely. Your father thought about it. The time would fluctuate depending on the date.
“Bring her back no later than nine o’clock.”
Robbie nodded with a smile. Your parents waved goodbye to you and Robbie as you both walked to his car. He opened the door for you, letting you get in and then shut your door. He rushed to the driver’s side, hopping in.
“Ready?” He asked you.
“Have I mentioned you looked beautiful tonight?”
You playfully rolled your eyes. “Only always,” you giggled.
Robbie laughed with you before turning on his car and driving off.
Tonight was a big date. It was your third date with Robbie. He was taking you to a fancy restaurant, hence why you both dressed in nicer clothing. You both listened to some tunes on the radio, driving in a blissful silence.
After ordering food, you and Robbie simply looked at one another. You two had been talking the night away and it barely began. You had a good feeling that tonight was going to be good. You’d never been on a third date with a boy, and you had never liked a boy this much. He was terrific.
“Y/N?” Robbie asked shyly. You looked up at him. “I wanted to ask this at the end of the night, but…”
“But what, Robbie?” You tilted your head in small confusion.
The food came as he was about to speak. Both of you grinned and thanked the waiter. You each took a few bites and sips of your drinks.
“What was it you were going to tell me?” You asked softly, smiling.
“Oh, right,” Robbie chuckled nervously. “How do you feel about going steady?”
Your hand that was holding your fork lightly dropped, clinking against the plate. Your eyes went a little wide. Although you were a classy and beautiful girl, you had never had a boyfriend. You’d never gone steady with a guy. You only went on a few dates before realizing this wasn’t a guy you wanted to be with.
“Really?” He nodded. “Are you sure?”
“Yes… Are you not ready for that?”
You swallowed the lump in your throat. “No, I’m ready. I’d love to be your girlfriend.”
A huge toothy grin formed on Robbie. He was so nervous to ask such a question. Now you and him were official; serious business. You were no longer just going on dates. You and him were a thing, a couple.
“Come here,” you told Robbie. “You got a little something…” You motioned that there was something on his face. He leaned over the small table. You leaned, too, only to quickly peck him on the lips. Something you never did.
Blush erupted from both yours and Robbie’s cheeks. You both giggled before eating more food.
Throughout the entire night, you two laughed and mingled. You could never run out of things to talk about with Robbie. There’s was always something to share. He always made you laugh, too. Whether it be him playing with his food and making a silly face, or he had a funny story to tell. He always had you laughing.
By the end of the night, when the time reached 8:50PM, he parked his car on the side of your house. You didn’t want to go home though.
“I don’t want this night to end. I had such fun,” you exclaimed, looking out at your home.
“We still have ten minutes left.” Robbie shrugged his shoulders.
You raised a brow at him. “What can we do in ten minutes?”
He chuckled, putting his hands up. “Lots of things. Like we can continue talking,” he suggested, leaning closer. “Or we can…”
Butterflies picked up in your tummy, their wings creating many tickly feelings. Robbie never finished his sentence as he rested his lips fully on yours. You hadn’t kissed many boys. And kissing them in their vehicles was so scandalous for you. But here you were, kissing your boyfriend in front of your home, sitting in his car.
His hand cupped your cheek to get a better grip. His mouth moved against yours while your hands moved onto Robbie’s thighs, resting there.
“My goodness,” you pulled away to take a breath. “I’ve never done this before.” You admitted shyly.
“There’s always a time to try new things,” Robbie giggled, caressing your cheek. “Okay?”
“Yes, I’m perfectly okay,” you looked into his eyes. “Can we kiss again?”
Both of you kissed repeatedly. You kissed until it was 8:59PM. The very last minute. You fixed your hair and smoothed out your dress. Robbie opened the door for you again, letting you out of his car. He walked you to the front door, holding both your hands.
“I will see you tomorrow.”He pecked your lips innocently.
“I’ll be looking forward to it.” You kissed his cheek. “Goodnight, Robbie.”
You opened the door, closing it as you waved. The second it closed, you squealed, jumping carefully up and down. Tonight was perfect. Dinner was fantastic, you were officially with Robbie, and you did things you’d never done before. It was the perfect date. And you were seeing Robbie tomorrow which made everything even better.
OMG I CANNOT STOP ADORING THIS ZERVIS COVER FOR VOLUME 53
(THE COVER’S MOSTLY OFFICIAL) AND OMG DID YOU NOTICE THE TREES BEHIND MAKING A HEART SHAPE WITH ZEREF AND MAVIS IN THE MIDDLE AND OMG THEY ARE HOLDING HANDS AND ARE STANDING SORTA BACK-TO-BACK AND LOOKING JUST SO SWEET AND INNOCENT!!<3 AND THE FALLING SNOW IS MAKING IT ALL THE MORE ROMANTIC!!
AND THE FACT THAT”FAIRY TAIL” IS WRITTEN WITH THE BLACK SHADING ON TOP AND GOLDEN/YELLOW SHADING ON THE BOTTOM…
WELL I AM ALREADY CRAVING ANOTHER NALU COVER~(officially canon would be better)
I really love this cover and the smart blue and pink shading on top,too!!and the fact that Natsu and Lucy’s outfits are so similar!!
Lucy has a white cloth tied round her waist while Natsu has a similar one slung across his shoulder.
While she has a golden ribbon tied round her collar,Natsu has another cloth,a golden one,tied round his waist.
Lucy is wearing a detached sleeve only on her left arm with her right arm bear. Natsu is wearing an attached sleeve on his left arm with his right arm bear too!(except for those goddamn bandages)
Lucy’s wearing a white bracelet of some sort on her right hand. While Natsu’s wearing a black(opp.color)wrist band with the white bandages on his right arm.
The buttons on Lucy’s top are golden much like the color of the borders of his coat/waistcoat.
the color of their clothes is almost exactly the same:a soothing but deep shade of blue.
Natsu’s white scarf and Lucy’s white collar.
The golden birds in the background probably symbolize something,knowing Hiro-san.
Pink suitcase with yellow straps(and hearts on them too,in pink,might i add)
In the bottom right corner,there’s a pink mat of some sort with yellow colored star like shapes.
Right at the bottom,a pink book with golden/yellow lining.
Its natsu and lucy on the cover along with happy after so long,for the love of god!!!
Bearing resemblance to the first cover,it (probably) symbolizes a new beginning and adventure after the reunion of natsu and lucy and the assembling of the guild once again!!:)
Reminding us of the initial Team Natsu.
The old,weird but beautiful bond between Natsu and Lucy and happy is evident.
How people might change,but somethings never do,and memories remain…;)
It’s not just the color co-ordination,either!I mean,this cover tell so much!…Its means so much!that i just can’t…
I know that most of you probably noticed this int he first few seconds and squealed over it but it’s just so amazing and it’s nalu so i could not control myself and had to make a post on this too.Many are my thoughts and they might be irrelevant but i just love ft and nalu so much!:)Sorry for this long post and for wasting a bit of your time.And thanks for actually reading through this!!)
Maybe this cover was’t bout Nalu but this is how i see it.Though it’s just a fraction of my thoughts.
I DO NOT OWN FAIRY TAIL.ALL RIGHTS GO TO THE AMAZING AUTHOR: HIRO MASHIMA-SAN.

Grace and Rainier’scivil wedding ceremony - 18 April 1956
“The bridal dress for the legal rites, like the one for the religious ceremony, was designed by Helen Rose and created by the MGM wardrobe department. The dress, more properly described as a lace suit, consisted of a fitted bodice with high rounded collar and a flared skirt. MGM workers re-embroidered the outlines of the floral-patterned lace in dusty pink silk floss to give the fabric what Miss Rose described as a very unusual effect. The civil wedding ensemble was harmoniously completed by a cloche hat, short gloves, and David Evins-designed shoes.”
