Keeping It Minimal


Again, the lure of yellow called to me from Leah's shop in the form of this wiggle dress. It has an absolute huge collar, which does not suit me at all, so I turned it under and pinned it at the front.


The back shows how long this collar is.   More like a mini shawl really.  I also had plans on removing the bow at the front and replacing it with a brooch, but the bow grew on me.


This is a pretty minimal look for me: straightened hair, no jewellery and plain black shoes.  It's nice keping it simple sometimes.  Sometimes.

Dress: Bell's Belles Vintage
Shoes: Rebel London
Stockings: Leg Avenue

  3. Beautiful! You have the most perfect figure for all those kinds of dresses. I am always way too tall and therefore usually have to stick to seperates.

    1. Ugh, by no means perfect...especially recently. I wish I could wear sperates but am way too short!

  4. I love this. If I could afford to just get rid of all my clothes and replace them with vintage pin-up looking ones I would=]

    Bettie Bangs just don't agree with me though. I love them, I love them on me, but they won't stay styled the way I want them to..

    1. Yes, bettie bangs are annoying to keep perfect. I have to trim mine every 3 weeks at least and most days I hairspray it to keep it from seperating!
