No, don't worry - it's not John Cleese in a bikini! And it's probably not actually completely different but it is a little bit of a change, though it is still an outfit post.
Lately I've just been feeling the itch to change up my style a little - don't get me wrong, I'm still in love with what I've been wearing the past...4 or so years but I've had the urge to wear little '60s or '70s style dresses that seem to be fairly popular at the moment. And to not set my hair! I actually started writing up a post about how I've been feeling about clothes, lately, and the style I've created for myself but I'm not sure if I will finish it or not, yet.
Outfit details: bow hair clip - not sure but possibly Forever 21; dress - Dotti; vintage brooch - etsy; bangles - Salvo's; shoes - Big W.
I bought this nail polish for $3 from Price Attack (the brand is Colour by TBN) and, for a cheap nail polish, it's surprisingly very good.
To be completely honest, I had more fun getting ready that night than I have in a really long time. I don't know if many more dresses like this one will find their way into my wardrobe, but I will definitely be keeping this one in regular rotation. I can't wait until it's cooler and I can wear it with tights and cardigans.
(I also wonder if all the episodes of New Girl I've been watching influenced this outfit, too. I started out with a vague dislike of the show and now I'm addicted. I love/hate when that happens!)
I occasionally search etsy for vintage name brooches - not in the hopes of finding my own name but for old names that aren't used as much today and when I saw this one for 'Babe' I had to get it. Mainly because 'babe' is my favourite adjective to use when I talk about attractive people!
My hair didn't keep the lovely loose curls I created with my straightener for very long - my hair just will not take to heat styling, no matter what I do.
My friend Kate posing for the camera - she's wearing a dress that she bought at Coles! I was very impressed when she told me. And she made the cute oversized bow in her hair.
I seem to bring out only the best poses and facial expresses in my friends when I photograph them! Photographing my friends is something I intend to do more often (though I have, of course, been saying this for years!)
Perhaps I will finish that post about how I've been feeling about my style, lately - anyone interested in reading something like that?
