♥ Dress by Revival
♥ Shoes by Zu
♥ Covergirl nail polish
♥ I also wore cherry earrings by Table Eight and a purse from Williams the Shoeman but forgot to take a picture, oops!I tried for ages to do victory rolls with my hair to match the 1940s style of the dress, but could not for the life of me figure out how to do them properly. Can anyone link me to a tutorial or something really easy to follow? I ended up backcombing my hair and ended up with something more closely resembling Peg Bundy than a 1940's film star. I also had shoes with very spiky heels but my boyfriend talked me out of them, since the party was taking place on a farm and all. I think the Zu heels were quite adequate though (and at least they didn't spike millions of holes in the grass)!
This is what I wore to Valentine's Day dinner at the Dux Cafe:
♥ Secondhand dress from a shop in East Fremantle
♥ Diva ring
♥ Miss Shop booties
♥ Williams the Shoeman purse, bought for something ridiculous like $2
I bought this dress a few weeks ago, while I was in East Fremantle (I think?) having lunch with my family for my grandparent's anniversary. Across from the restuarant I could see a little secondhand shop and this dress was hung over the front of the door and I was eyeing it all the while I was having lunch. As soon as it was polite to leave I bolted to the shop and hurriedly tried it on while praying it didn't have any obvious flaws I had missed and that I wouldn't get stuck inside it. I'm so glad I did, it's a very cute shape and a herringbone pattern that's printed to look like it's been scribbled on the dress. I have no idea what era it's from, so I'm not sure it's actually vintage, but I love it all the same.
What did you do with your weekend?
