A new vintage dress. This one was only 6 pounds, which makes a refreshing change from the usual over pricedness. It’s 1980s I think, and it’s quite worn around the sleeves, which probably explains it. But it’s a lovely colour, print and shape, and I’ll happily wear it to work. Got a couple of compliments too!

Also my eyeliner pencil died so I’ve just got mascara on my eyes, and it looks weird. I actually look asleep in most of the photos. It’s strange how you become so dependent on make up!

dress – charity shop
shoes – hush puppies
bag – tula

    I totally didn't have time to apply my makeup today, and I feel like I look really weird. I do, however, LOVE that dress on you!! It looks like it fits like a dream!

    You look super chic! I love how you can find 80s inspired by past eras. Just as good sometimes.

    That dress is fantastic! I'm so glad you found it for such a great price, too!

    The turquoise is an excellent color on you! The shape is great too. I know how naked it feels to only wear mascara, but mascara is better than nothing.

    Ooh, what an amazing colour on you! You have just reminded me just how powerfully affecting colour can be so I am off to find me some to put on to chase the moody blues away!
