This morning the boy and I went out looking for a present for my sister's 25th birthday.
This is what I wore:
- Vintage white beret
- Vintage red ribbed blouse
- Plaid below-the-knee skirt
- Black kitten heels with bows
- 1950's vintage black handbag
I had quite a few people compliment me on my outfit today, including one lady calling me baby-doll, another one even said I looked French! I don't know if it was the beret or the outfit in general. I felt like wearing my red lipstick today, and when I do I nearly always dress pre-1960's style. I was going to wear my hair in victory rolls, in order to practice for the 1950's nostalgia festival that is occuring in my town soon, but they weren't as nice as I'd hoped them to be. The lady that cut my hair put layers in the front (which I was not happy with) so it is a little bit hard for me to do the old styles that I used to do (a bad example here)- pincurls are a nightmare to do now! So I decided to simply wear my white beret.
Yes I know, today was intended for looking for a present for my sister (which I did get!) but I had to spoil myself with this lovely little lovely. I couldn't resist the puff and frosted glass! It smells like vanilla and gives your skin a soft shimmer and sparkle. It looks beautiful sitting on my dressing table. I'll have to do a post on it soon.
How cute is this? The boy and I got it for our anniversary. It is now stuck permanently on our fridge.
I was quite happy with my eye makeup today - applying the eyeliner a little bit thinner than usual and extended my eyebrows a little into the temples. Don't mind my lipstick. It was after we came home and I hadn't realized how much it had rubbed off. That's what drinking hazelnut iced chocolate tea does to you.
