WOW it has been hot outside lately!!! It has been said before but I will say it again: it's hard to dress in an alternative fashion in the summer!! I may not have posted about this much before, but I do really enjoy the retro/pinup sort of style. I also really love to wear dresses; I find that retro style dresses are perfect for looking something resembling put together in the heat.
I wore this outfit to an outdoor festival where you taste food from a bunch of different restaurants. I kept my makeup simple with plain neutral eyeshadows from Inglot with some demi false lashes just to keep things interesting. I also wore a bit of Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess as my shoulders and arms are rather tan as I have not been vigilant about wearing sunscreen this year (BAD!) I wore my new MAC Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint which was perfect for eating as it stays on pretty well and is sheer enough that it doesn't look messed up after you eat.
To do my hair, I set it in hot rollers and then put it in a loose ponytail. Used a twisty hair scarf from American Apparel as an accessory.
Hair scarf: American Apparel
Dress: Pinup Couture Daisy Dress
Bolero: Pinup Couture
Shoes: Clarkes (My work shoes, not very stylin' but good for walking around)
The dress I wore is super comfortable is great for hot weather! Since I was at the event until the sun went down, I brought along a bolero for when it cooled off. It is small enough that I can fold it up and bring it along in my purse. I have been really enjoying dresses from Pinup Girl clothing lately, I have my eye on a few more dresses to possibly add to my collection.
Do you like vintage/retro style?
