And the details…
Thanks to The Fashion Diet, I’ve been making the most of what I’ve got and trying to come up with new looks from old clothes. Well, not that old. But you know what I mean.
I bought this dress from ASOS about 6 months ago and have worn it just once. There’s something about it that leaves me feeling uninspired. I’ve never been one for a sixties silhouette – I’m not a straight up and down flower girl with wavy hair and that boho undone cool. I’m much more of a fifties filly with a nipped in waist, immaculate makeup and painted nails.
This dress screams sixties to me. It was definitely made for someone with smaller boobs than mine! But I think by belting it and teaming it with my favourite chunky boots, I’ve made it more ‘me’. The print cheered me up on a grey day and one of my work friends said I looked beautiful! So I think we can declare it a winner, and I’ll move it out from the dark depths of my wardrobe.
How would you style this dress? Do you like what I did, would you do it differently? I’d love to know!
