THE ONCE-EVERY-EIGHT-YEARS-DRESS


I'm continuing with my quest to dig in the depths of my wardrobe wear as much as possible during the summer: This dress is my grand-aunt's old and I have had it for a very long time. I used it last time one day during 2008 and the time before -the first time- when I graduated from the 9th grade ( I remember having had big curls in my hair from curlers and wearing those bonzo platform sandals of the late nineties, uh, with it); which means I've used it once every eight years so far. So yes, it was a fair idea to let it out in the sun again.


It's, ahem, rather short and I've felt it's not really me because of that but then again what the heck; why not! I wore it with black hotpants underneath for those just-in-case moments. And painted myself some candy nails to go along.

Lovely! I think the length looks fab on you. Perfect with your hair and the bows on the shoes. :)

Jag undrar verkligen hur du gjort den frisyren och om du kan hänvisa till någon tutorial för att göra en liknande.
Den är så fin!

Désirée : Har du långt hår kan du fixa det genom att dela upo håret i nedre och övre del; tvinna nedre delen först typ svinrygg och sedan göra en hästsvans av övre som du 'viker' ner; du kan fylla ut den med såndän sockbun som t.ex finns på H&M etc. Men jag har ju inte så långt hår nu så jag har helt enkelt lagt till lite mera :)
En enklare version av denna: http://freelancersfashion.blogspot.fi/2012/12/the-1960s-big-twirl-updos.html
utan extra fyll, bara rullat extra svansen til en stor knut uppe på huvudet.
