All ye faithfull

Today's outfit was a little bit inspired by Marianne Faithfull, a little by Zooey Deschanel, and a lot by the nice weather we had today after days of rain!

This amazing 60s shift is part of my most recent vintage haul. On Trademe, which is the NZ equivalent of eBay, there was a vague but promising auction. It promised 'gorgeous old dresses' and very little other detail, with one blurry picture of a pile of clothes on a bed. I took my chance, and won the bidding, and it was so worth it! Six 1950s dresses, four from the 1960s, plus two skirts, a top and a nightie from the same era! Amazing! Some of them are too small, so are going to my local vintage shop, but some of them are just right! Opening the package was like Christmas, my birthday, and a costume cupboard all rolled into one.



(Wearing a vintage dress bought online and t-bar flats from Emporium Vintage)

I did something pretty wild today. Bought my first ever makeup! I got undereye concealer and lip stain from The Body Shop and two-dollar-shop liquid liner. As you may be able to tell, I don't have the steadiest of hands, but I did my best. I'm sure I'll get better with practice!


Can you see my little gray cat in the background?

  9. The dress is gorgeous! And yes, very good job with the eyeliner, I'm still getting the hang of doing it right the first time and it's been months since I started. Good for you!
