OOTD: She's A Flower Child
If you remember me asking for ideas
about how to dress for an 80s party last week, well, the party occurred.
I also said I'll turn up in colourful makeup
but that didn't go quite according to plan. Suffice to say, my attempts at recreating this made me look that I was punched in varying shades. However I found another makeup inspiration in the form of Georgia Jagger from a Vogue British magazine a few months back and painted myself according to the colour hues I see on her and voila, I think they turn out pretty nice! What do you think? The source of inspiration.
Well because the colour tones took on blue and green, it immediately made me think of peacock feathers and plus Katy Perry's "Peacock
" song had been resounding in my head recently so I decided to dress in peacock feather colours! And then the Forever21 headband was in my way so I snatched it up too and ...Tadah!
I also have the beautiful navy blue ASOS Curve Embellished Scalloped Hem One Shoulder Dress
I've been dying to wear and of course there is also the ASOS Portfolio Envelope Clutch
which I bought in green on an impulse and didn't look back. A peacock-worthy outfit was born and the 70s flower child emerged.
I didn't intend to look like a 70s bohemian chick but somehow I just did so I went with the flow. If all else fails, I could say that I am living in the 80s with a 70s mindset. Talk about ways to wriggle out of the situation!These are my gorgeous Evans lace tights. This is the only pair that fits me beautifully and I love them to bits. I am intending to grow my tights collection through Evans!
I love how I turned out except I wished I had a fitting black blazer instead of replying on my waterfall one because I felt it would look way better with a fitted blazer. Verdict for the ASOS Curve Embellished Scalloped Hem One Shoulder Dress:
When I first saw the dress, I was head over heels over it. However the price deterred me from getting my hands on it as early as I would have like but still it was worth the wait. When it went on a discount, I bought one in mink. But then it got discounted further and unable to resist, I bought it in navy blue as well. This dress is heavy with all the beading. It fits just right with an inner elastic waistband, invisible to the eye so that the dress lies well on the body and does not float around. It couldn't really float around even if it wanted to, the embellishments are heavy. It would probably lay limped without the elastic band so for that, I am grateful. Although I think this dress looks absolutely gorgeous with one shoulder off but part of me still wish that they could have designed it to cover both arms so I need not struggle with an outerwear for it and disguise its beauty. All that was needed was to have both sides with sleeves and yet retain the scallop hems and it would be a perfection. Some people found this dress short but being 5'5, I found it long enough to retain my modesty and of course I had the lace tights on just in case. Overall this dress made me feel beautiful, polished and I know many others would say the same.Bows for ASOS Curve Embellished Scalloped Hem One Shoulder Dress:
