I’ve really been feeling the pin-up vibe with my outfits lately. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that I’ve been listening to a lot of The Baseballs amazing do-wop covers. Perhaps it’s because the steaming hot end-of-summer temperatures have made me feel all warm and sultry under the collar. Whatever the reason, I’ve been reaching for my hairspray and winged eyeliner to create the perfect pin-up look.
I wore this outfit to dinner a few nights ago, and managed to snap off a few pictures as I raced out the door.
I am wearing:
- Cruelle De Vil Tee shirt from Threadless
- Black and white polka dot skirt from Best N Less
- Red buckled stilettos (thfited)
- Black studded leather belt (gift from my ex)
- Dice earrings from Equip
I recently purchased the NYX vinyl liquid eyeliner and it’s been a godsend in this hot weather. The applicator is a very thin brush, so you can easily apply your liner with pinpoint precision. It dries fast and has the most deliciously patent finish. Best of all, this stuff doesn’t budge. I can be sweating like a disco queen under a spotlight and my eyeliner remains crisp and clean.
I’ve opted to wear a pretty apple-tinted gloss on my lips rather than my traditional full red lip. I just find gloss to be a lot more forgiving in the heat. This one is the Innoxa Antioxidant Lip Glaze which I reviewed a while ago.
Although the days are drawing in and the air is a little crisper in the mornings, I’m sure that my love affair with pin up style will continue right on into Autumn.
