Happy Fancy Friday! I had so much fun putting together this look! It's part flapper, part hipster, part librarian, and part Zooey Deschanel. I tried to do a lot of color play in every element.
For the makeup I fell in love with this look and was able to recreate it very well, though I realized afterwards that my new bangs (Thanks Sissy!) kind of obscure the look haha. There's pink on the lids and taupe in the creases from my Revlon pre-matched set and the blue highlight is Sephora shadow. For the lips I layered orange lip stain underneath a lipstick called "Rich Girl Red". (There's a really cool edit of this photo on my flickr here.) The orange on my lips picks up the orange on my little Son of a Sailor necklace, and the pink eyeshadow compliments the lucite flapper beads and beaded headband. There's also my locket with a pink chrysanthemum cabochon and blue jade bauble.
I love love love this hairstyle! It looks fancy but took about 5 minutes to do, so I will be using this technique more often. I had trouble getting the headband to stay so I had to use butterfly clips, but after that I just twisted and tucked sections of hair into the headband, working from front to back. A little hairspray and it's good to go. This look is also great as a half-updo like this.
The lighting was a little off for most of the shoot, so this is the only full-body one that came out! I don't mind though because this little outfit was so fun I think it's a perfect fit! The dress is from Target (On clearance for $6!), tights are from H&M. My favorite belt is from Urban Outfitters ($4!), and the shoes are Chelsea Crew. I lurve me some Chelsea Crew.
Picked up these sweet hipster sunglasses at Icing, which is also where the headband came from. They have so many cute bows right now and I barely got out without one!
Oh, and did I mention the dress has pockets! Woot!
I got the little scissor bracelet at the fair this past weekend and Johnny gave me the measuring tape one, and I made the lacelet. We shot these in front of my collection of craft books!
Oh, is that a cameo of the craft book I wrote a couple patterns for? How'd that get there lol. Feeling great and hoping for big things on the horizon!
