On Saturday night I headed out to town for Ruby's birthday celebrations. For once I didn't plan my outfit days in advance and ended up picking something on the day. I quite forget just how lovely this dress is to tell the truth...
Outfit details: hair flowers - ?; 1950s earrings - gift; faux pearl necklace - Adelaide Vintage & Fashion Fair; 1940s dress - etsy; stockings - Love Kylie; shoes - Rubi Shoes.
It's quite strange but I always feel slightly more self-conscious with an up-do...it's almost as though my usual hairstyle has become a bit of a security blanket for me (just as red lipstick has).
One of the many things I love about this dress is that it has a matching jacket!
Another thing I love is all of the lovely little details like the gathering at the shoulders, here.
Being the wallflower that I am (I'm not kidding - if I don't know an awful lot of people at a party or social gathering I generally end up spending a lot of time standing alone, trying my best to look lonely enough so that someone will come and make conversation with me...) I asked my friend Kate to come along with me. You might remember her from one or two of the ukulele videos I've posted.
