Sometimes the music I listen to while I’m getting dressed has a profound impact on the clothes I decide to put on. This morning, for example, I was listening to the Hairspray soundtrack. Then this happened:
I don’t think that I’ve worn a beehive since I cut my hair. I love the volume and bounce that the bottom half of my hair has when I put it up like this. If I’d wanted to, I could have made the pouf really massive, but I had to go to work later in the day, so I kept it on the small side.
– Green printed vintage dress from The Dookie Emporium
– Chiffon headscarf from my grandmother’s closet
– Purple platform shoes from Shoe Biz
– Purple beaded bracelet from Tree of Life
– Jade beaded bracelet from some random hippie store
– Onyx ring (gift from a friend)
– Crystal ring from ASOS
I haven’t worn this dress in quite a while, and I thought that it was about time I took it for another spin around the block. I think it looks like something that Edna Turnblad might wear after her make-over.
I had loads of fun with my makeup too, although it doesn’t really show under my glasses. Miss Fairchild gave me a set of incredible eyeshadows as a gift, and today I played around with a gorgeous iridescent purple shade. I added a flick of liquid liner and cut my crease with a darker purple shadow.
Here’s a closer look at the print on my dress. Would you believe I found this gorgeous thing shoved down the bottom of a basket of ancient tea-towels? I love this dress so much. It’s so comfortable, and the half-length sleeves make it ideal to wear in the in-between climates of spring and autumn. Sometimes I wear it as a tunic over jeans, sometimes I’ll pair it with tights and sometimes I’ll go bare-legged to show off my stems.
