Today is my birthday, and before I collapse under the weight of expensive gifts and drown in a pile of personalised birthday cards bought by the extra posties they’ve had to draft in specially (I wish) I thought I’d pop in and show you my eventual interpretation of futuristic retro for BoNanafana last night.
I discussed going for a bit of a Rachael from Bladerunner vibe back in April. And eventually my outfit looked like this (excuse the stupid awkward smile):
❤ Blouse - Calvin Klein ❤ Skirt - Lady K Loves ❤ Belt - Rosa Rosa Retro ❤ Jacket - Warehouse ❤ ❤ Stockings - Jonathon Aston ❤ Shoes - Faith (Sob) ❤
The pictures are a little blurry as Mr Chick needs training with my camera, but I’m sure you get the idea.
The skirt was custom made for me by Lady K Loves and fits beautifully. I find pencil skirts really difficult to get to fit, so it’s fantastic to get one made! I’ve also got a Stockings and Romance girdle on under there courtesy of Vintaga, because a bit of authenticity in your undergarments is nice on big nights!
I did my hair myself and I was quite pleased with how it came out. The fringe did start to slip a little towards the end of the night, so maybe more kirby grips next time! The only photo I took of my hair was using the exciting Lomo filter on my iPhone, but here it is, and you can see the back in the second full length photo.
Finally I shall leave you with a blurry picture of me in front of a radio car thing, as I think the radio car is cute although the picture is terrible…
