Black and white and a touch of gold

On the Saturday night I made plans to go out with some friends, as a belated birthday celebration, after the convention's banquet. I kept changing my mind about what to wear until I ordered the dress that I wore in this post - I paid for express postage so I figured I should make the most of it and ordered another dress that I decided to wear on the Saturday night.

I felt quite 1980s-does-1960s in this, maybe because of this girl from John Waters' Hairspray? Either way, I love this dress and the way everything ended up looking together. (And I love 80s does 60s, too).

Love this necklace!

Ha! This photo basically looks like a mirror image of the top one. Variety in posing isn't exactly my forte. The night didn't go quite as planned and I spent most of the time with my coat on - I felt a bit sick after eating too much at the banquet so we got tea and then wandered around trying to find somewhere that wasn't too loud or expensive. We didn't find anywhere so we just went home! Ha.


I tried my best to do the look second from the bottom seen in my review of Retro Makeup but it's not quite the same.


  1. Your eye makeup is lookin' amazing! Love the cat ring too.

  2. oh my gosh this dress is killer, and you look perfect in it! <3

  5. Fab outfit. I have quite a few 80s dresses in my wardrobe and I'm so fond of them. I love my earlier decades clothing but my 80s stuff is dearest to me :) I usually go for the underdog and that applies to vintage clothing too :D

  6. Your necklace pairs so well with your dress, I love it! And your makeup is flawless :)
