Bye Bye Birdie.

So today I thought I would write a post on one of my favourite dresses which I bought last Summer. I’m a firm believer in wearing clothes as many times as you want, it drives me crazy to see all of these celebrities having a huge closet full of clothes but never wearing them, what is the point?

I bought this dress from one of my favourite High Street stores – Dorothy Perkins, they have such beautiful designs and for great prices! The style of the dress is a Bardot off the shoulder, which I absolutely love and always comes in for Summer Trends.  The dress is fitted around the top but the bottom half is unrestricted and a fairly short length which is perfect for Summer Weather.

What I also love about this dress is the colour, I adore blue and have a lots of other blue clothes, there are so many different shades and I really think it suits blondes. I love the pattern too, it’s floral, which as you know is one of my favourite styles, but it’s also covered with birds! Animals are so beautiful and I really love birds, Pigeons specifically – I just find them really inspiring, but that’s another story. It’s just perfect for a lover of vintage!

It was finally warm enough today to wear a dress without leggings or tights, which makes the look feel more summery. I added my half sleeved baby blue cardigan to complete the look, it gives the dress an even more vintage feel.

Lastly, to complete the finished look I added my number one accessory – a flower! I thought a white flower would compliment the baby blue and not detract too much from the dress. I’ve had this one for years and it’s one of my favourites. I also added some earrings, these are probably my most worn ones at the moment, I adore them. My mum picked them up for me from Next, they have some lovely accessories!

For my hair and make up I created my usual everyday look – pin curls and 1950s make up. I used my light Rimmel Eye Shadow compact, as I didn’t want to detract away from my dress – less is more! As for my lips I used my favourite lipstick of the moment – Costa Chic by Mac, it’s a beautiful peachy shade and very Brigitte Bardot. I also used my Lasting Sensation Lip Pencil by Mac to keep the colour in place as it’s filter is frost so it’s not as strong as matte. I used my new mascara by Maybelline called Lash Sensational which is great for length and separation – no clumps!
