WILLOW DRESS 40’S STYLE EDIT
I have been waiting for an opportunity to wear my new Willow dress and Saturday night was the perfect occasion. This dress is just amazing with a built in corset and boning to give you curves in all the right places. It has small cut outs along the front with a nude coloured lining. Because of the structure and corsetry of the dress it inspired me to try and achieve a 40’s look.
I teamed the dress with some gorgeous nude heels that tie around the ankle which I was hoping would also create a bit of 40’s vibe.
My make up was a grey smoky eye with deep plum lips. It was fun to take some time and enjoy the process of getting ready. I am always in such a hurry and tend to do the same look all the time – so I made a point of using a different makeup palette to what I usually do. I can do a post on the makeup I used if anyone is interested in more details.
Finally my hair was achieved with my GHD straightener to create loose waves. I like this style because it does give my fine hair a bit of body and the illusion of thickness. Once again I am happy to do a post showing how to achieve this look if you want me to!
