Blue lace, black tights and a ukulele

I shocked myself by going out two whole nights in a row! I was a bit uncertain as to what I was going to wear on the second night but luckily my ASOS order arrived and I was able to indulge my '60s mood further by wearing this little '60s-esque number (and listening to The Troggs whilst getting ready). Of course, the look might be slightly more '60s if I were wearing a different shade of lipstick, but I can't imagine wearing anything other than red! (I also don't own any shade other than red - ha!)

Feeling a little '60s...

Outfit details: earrings - gift; dress - ASOS; tights - Woolworths (was in a rush & had no tights); bracelet - op-shop; shoes - Big W.

I was planning to wear my hair up until I brushed it and this happened. Now if only I can get it to happen on purpose instead of by accident!

I must apologise for the less than stellar quality of these shots - it was raining outside and the quality of light in my house is usually awful, even on a sunny day (what I wouldn't give for gorgeous natural light in my house!) and obviously I didn't feel like getting soaked.

As I mentioned, I was listening to The Troggs whilst getting ready - well, I also recorded a ukulele cover of their song With a Girl Like You (changing 'girl' to 'boy' & as well as a line in the first verse).



And for anyone who is interested, you can see some other videos at my YouTube channel that didn't make it on to the blog.

Love,

  3. Really love this outfit on you, that colour suits you perfectly! This look reminds me of An Education, not as something Carey's character wore in the film, but as something her character might wear on a night out.

  7. Oh I love that lace dress!! So cute. The red lippie looks fantastic with it, I think. Between your blog and the Mad Men re-watching I've been doing, I'm having a bit of a '60s moment myself over here. So fun!
