Although I love the colour pink, I don’t seem to wear it that much, nor do I have many pink items in my wardrobe. However, I decided to style a really girly look today, similar to my Vintage Style of course, but with lots more pink!
My Mum thought it would be a good idea to get me out of the house and we went to see Hot Pursuit at the Cinema, with Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon. I’ve adored Reese Witherspoon ever since Legally Blonde came out in 2001 and I’m obsessed with Sofia Vergara as I’m obsessed with Modern Family. It’s only just came out today in The UK, I’ve been wanting to see it for SO long! We both thought it was great and I will definitely be buying the DVD, so don’t let the Critics influence you!
Last week I was looking for a dress to wear for my Grandad’s Funeral, I had no luck finding anything in the stores, so I decided to look online. Although the clothes always look lovely and are definitely my style, before now I’ve rarely bought anything from Very before. Most likely because it’s only online and I like to find dresses when I’m out and about. I definitely will be going on Very more often from now on though!
Once again, my amazing Mum came across a lovely Black Crochet Double Layer Dress for only £29. The dress also had two other options, one was Hot Pink and the other was Floral, of course, being a 1950s girl at heart – I chose the Floral. This one was slightly more costly at £35, but still a pretty good price! This dress is perfect for Spring and Summer, so it was the perfect time to buy it and with England’s Weather, the Polyester Material isn’t a problem.
What’s great about this dress is that it almost looks like a top and a skirt put together! Of course that’s not the case, but it’s fun to keep people questioning. There’s also no zip either, so you literally just pull it over your head and tada – you’re ready! Even though there’s no zip or buttons, the dress still is quite fitted yet it’s comfy and you can happily stay in it all day.
The dress is just full of details, the underlay has almost a Pink Tint to it, it’s so pretty and there are so many things to see. For example, the little embellishments are so important and really make an outfit, such as the pleats in the skirt. The Crochet pattern has such a Vintage Feel, it’s timeless, classy and really defines the dress.
Whilst the top half of the dress is subtle, the skirt is full of colour and contrasts by really standing out. The Printed Skirt is filled with Butterflies and Flowers, just beautiful, artist and a modern twist on a classic pattern. This dress is perfect for a day out in The Summer Sunshine, but you can easily dress it up too, it’s versatile!
To compliment my dress, I wore my Baby Pink Cardigan from New Look. It furthered the Girly Chic Vibe I was aiming for and kept me warm at the same time! I love how all the Light Pastel Colours on the Cardigan and Crochet Top contrasted with the Vibrant Neon Flowers and Butterflies.
For Accessories, I wore my Nain’s Jewellery, her Watch and Necklace, which are incredibly sentimental to me and mean even more whilst I’m trying to come to terms with the loss of my Grandfather. I wore my Pandora Ring which I got for my Birthday last year, to add even more Pink to my Look. I added my Owl Earrings because of their Vibrant Colours, which I bought from Accessorize, where else?
I applied a Gold Loreal Eyeshadow to my eyes for a Summer Glow and used Miley Cyrus’s Viva Glam Lipstick to complete my Make Up. I felt that the vibrant tone of the Lipstick really suited my Skirt Pattern, although for some reason I wasn’t feeling this colour as much as I have before. I applied the rest of my Make Up as usual, concentrating on my 1960s Eyeliner Flicks, they are a must for me.
Lastly, I Pin Curled my hair earlier this week and simply brushed my hair and sweeped it to one side, clipping it back loosely. I was inspired by the beautiful Veronica Lake and aimed to achieve her Iconic Bombshell Curls from the 1940s. I decided against any Hair Accessories because I felt like that would have been too overpowering.
