A 1920's shaped dress, in a riotous colorful modern print, worn with the hair down and a 60's brooch? Why not! Talk about mixing eras! I love how Miss Fisher, of Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries, wears large brooches at the shoulder of her dresses sometimes, so I thought I'd try the look out for myself! I just love wearing this dress, there is something so fun about the amount of fabric in the handkerchief hem and the bright colors in the feather print.
I rarely wear anything this colorful, and I think the dress pairs well with my new shining silver shoes from Zara. I bought them for under $20 on sale, sadly I can't give you the link as they are no longer available! It was a bit of a headache getting these as they first sent me a backpack by mistake. After a long back and forth, the correct shoes finally arrived and thank goodness they fit! I think they will be great for evening and I only wish they had made them in gold too.
You can probably tell I had a bit of fun with my eye make-up today. On the daily I do my usual nude eye-shadow and winged black eyeliner, but I miss playing with my many colorful eye-shadows. This look is achieved with a few Colour Pop eye-shadows and an electric blue liquid liner (NYX) with iridescent powder tapped on top. The iridescent white/sheer powder eye-shadow is from a brand called Jesse's Girl I found at Walgreen's a few years ago. Now that my hair has grown so long I am enjoying wearing it down in loose curls like this. I really need to get it cut if I want to wear it in more "set" 40's styles, but I think I will wait till next spring and enjoy having the extra length this fall/winter.
I should be sewing, but I'm having a lazy day instead! Sometimes you need a lazy day you know? :)
