dressed up like a lady: Dropping bombshells.

Jun 19, 2008

Dropping bombshells.

Considering how much I love the style, I should probably have more 50's and 50's-inspired dresses, if for no other reason than for the fact that they work with my proportions, rather than against them. This sun-dress is a pretty simple silhouette, but the structuring of the bodice is straight out of a Marilyn Monroe movie -- and the emphasis of that bow doesn't hurt. I've often thought about hemming it into a wiggle skirt, but I don't think my skills are up to it.


Dress: Scott via Orchid Lane
Shoes: Thrifted


Obligatory and shameless busty bombshell pose, as a tribute to miss Norma Jean.


Also, I went into Macy's looking for the gold shimmery nail color from MAC that I saw in Nylon and somehow walked out with this purpley pink from Lancome. It looked MUCH more lavender in the bottle and I was a bit disappointed that it came out so rosey, but I guess I should have figured it out myself, since the color is called Rose Royale.

  19. I, on the other hand, really like the nail polish. I have been using a real good, but cheap brand - but their range is limited in choice so maybe next time I will go for this one!

  20. You look absolutely amazing in the photos.

    I hate it when nail colors don't come out right, but I really like that rosy color. It looks great against your skin tone.
