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!
