I didn't actually intend this shot for the challenge (oddly enough). And the neg comments were right on...
1. Needs more contrast and color (yup, too true). (poor edit)
2. Not a good rep of 1946 (yes again. In fact, the items are era mixed and do not collectively represent any period very well.
3. It looks too staged. Agreed.

All that said, we had fun shooting it and she is just too too cute (this is my wife once again).

Nice take on the subject. Looks a little more like 1961, though.

I'm not sure if you did it for affect, but it looks to be a bit over-exposed..
But if it was for the 'old photo' affect, it doesn't look completely right.. good try though..

Cute shot. My only nit pick is that the wardrobe says more 1964 than 1946 but that could be easily fixed with a simple title change.
