Fashion Confession #2: Hanging with a Pin-Up Girl

      Hello again dahlings!:)

      Firstly, please excuse the awful pun in my title!xD ahaha

      If you already know me in real life, then you must already know how obsessed and how in love I am with old Hollywood bombshells like Audrey Hepburn, Bettie Page and Marilyn Monroe because of the fashion style and makeup looks they had in the 50s. I even had “Old Hollywood/The Oscars” as the theme for my 18th birthday party last year.

      For today’s look, I decided to channel my inner 50s girl and take on an inspired pin-up girl look. These pictures were my inspiration for the outfit. *Photo taken from Vanity Fair 🙂

      If I’m being honest, I was quite hesitant to post the pictures of me wearing my outfit because they’re a little more provocative than the styles I’m used to. When it comes to showing skin, I’m not so much of a cleavage person.(If it happens to be noticeable, it was never intended!^^”) I prefer more subtle patterns such as a low back or tiny side cutouts. Nevertheless, doing a completely inspired outfit hopefully excuses me from this rare display of boobage. Haha! Not that I wouldn’t wear it, I would. I’ll probably pop on something more conservative when going out but at home, it’s pure fun not having any boundaries!

      For this inspired outfit, I wanted to go all the way from hair to makeup as well. So, there I am carrying out my pin-up curls hairstyle.

      I know you can’t really tell that my outfit has tiny polka dots all over my two piece suit which is a bummer but it definitely has them!:) 
So, here’s me attempting to imitate the girl from one of the inspired picturesxD

And finally, the hair and makeup look!:) I loved Audrey Hepburn’s look in breakfast at Tiffany’s with her flicked eyeliner, full brows and her “my lips but better” lipstick shade that I decided to recreate it in my own way.
What do you guys think?:)
