Daily Outfit – 1980s retro does 1940s vintage style
Saturday was almost 40 degrees here, and that is the kind of heat that you really need to be prepared for. I recently came across this cute little 1980s summer number and knew that to make it oh so me, I’d have to style it up very 1940s. So with a clear goal in mind of staying cool, keeping my hair off my face and back; this is what I came up with!
Cats Eye Sunglasses – silver glitter framed reproduction glasses from Miskonduct
Strawberry beaded head band – Made for me on my travels
Necklace – 1950′s shell flower necklace found at Viva Las Vegas
Dress – 1980s cotton peplum and ruffled dress
Bag – 1950′s plasticane wicker bag found at Kitty’s Kitsch & Vintage in Mt Tambourine
Fan – Reproduction vintage wooden hand fan, found in a Bendigo antique store
Shoes – Aris Allen dance shoes
Lips – Beseme “Red Hot Red”
Bangles – yellow Bakelite bangle (op shop find) and faux scrimshaw bangle (from Diva)
Earrings – Red roses from Diva
And yes, for those of you wondering, I AM recording a tutorial on how to do this cool hair! Yay!
