Hellooo my darlings, it's been another busy but fun week! I am back with the beehive look as promised in my previous post....after the vintage fairs and wardrobe audit for Spring! I must admit I am not one for wearing make up, hairdos and vintage pieces every day....but this was one of those days that I did rise up to the occasion of having a vintage day and created the biggest beehive I have managed so far....also apologies to Miss Katie, Miss Sarah and the diners of a restaurant I usually go to in Chinatown (London) for the surprise, but there really were no birds hurt or hidden under my big bump of hair!
With the help of some bobby pins, comb and hairspray, I managed to roll my hair into a loop-like ball and propped it under to create the heightened big bump! The make up is more dramatic than usual, but I loved the new Clinique Quickliner for Eyes in Intense Midnight so much that the initial flick just gained a life of its own! And of course it is matched with a dash of my favourite Clinique red lipstick......so my take of the 1950s inspired rebellious Rock N' Roll look began taking shape! To complete the look I had to of course...match it with some lovely vintage pieces....which included a pair of green gold Art Deco looking earrings, a green stone-like gold shiny bracelet, an oversized vibrant turquoise green satin-feel crop top with tie front detail, and a pair of cropped funky flower power looking trousers resembling the 1950s Cigarette Pants! The shoes and grey tights were not vintage, but as it was a cold London day it was just necessary for practicality sake....and so my 1950s Cigarette Crop look was complete!
