Good Day Sunshine
I never wear trousers. I never wear anything not fitted at the waist. And I never wear high, round necklines.
Rules are made to be broken.
The trousers (you may remember them from last year) are not quite high waisted enough to pass for vintage, which is why I need to wear something long over the top. Out came this tunic. I'd worn it in June last year but figured it didn't really suit me, so it went into the to-sell pile (I wanted to repro the fabric first, which is why it hasn't gone anywhere yet). Anyway, I put it on and ended up rather liking the look! I still don't know if I should keep it - I can't really see myself getting the wear out of it to warrant it a place in my wardrobe, so it might go back into the selling pile (once I've repro'd the fabric, of course).
I fancied myself as Brigitte Bardot, chanelling carefree Riviera 60s chic. No? Maybe not.
I styled my hair to go with the sixties vibe (I've got a real hair - my hair - rat/hairpiece which I use to boost the beehive). The new length works great for that early 60s flick, too.
Ooh, and I also got a new shade of lipstick! It looks quite red in the pictures, but it's a bright hot pink and I love it. It was £1 from Superdrug's MUA range - when I decided I wanted to try a pink lipstick I didn't want to splash out on expensive lipsticks just to experiment with different colours. For £1 it's really not a bad quality lipstick, either.
