A couple of weeks ago I went along to the Tara Starlet Xmas blogger party and Oh my goodness… this event really was the reindeer’s b***ocks! We played dress-up with the Tara Starlet Autumn/Winter styles, had vintage locks and retro make-up applied by Pretty Me Vintage. There was a Xmasy spread laid out for us and after we had consumed a few Martini cocktails…posed for a little photoshoot.
Miss Tara Starlet herself, she really is one of the most bubbly and friendly people you will ever met and completely gorgeous. We talked about vintage style and how we both popped in and out of retro inspired looks. She explained how some of the styles she reproduces from vintage items would either be impossible to find in mint conditions, or if you did…they would cost a fortune.
I waited patiently for it to be my turn in the Pretty Me Vintage chair and wondered what I should have done. I would naturally say the Veronica Lake peek-a-boo retro waves, but this time I decided to try a little up do. Love, love love…I wish I could do it myself.
I was wearing wool sailor slacks which are the most flattering trousers I have ever worn! I am actually wearing a tweed pair in the previous Cinderala B post. Also the oriental inspired bamboo blouse..pure luxe. The statement necklace is from Nelly and the shoes are also from Nelly. The dress was actually what I got to take home and was a gorgeous party dress with a 50s silhouette.
