Retro inspired styling.

I Love vintage and retro clothing, jewellery and accessories. You know when your looking at old pictures of your Mother and somebody says, oh wow you two really look alike? Well I swear I am a carbon copy of her, from everything I wear, buy and like. Everything I want now, she had in the 80's. Sometimes I'll even get asked where something is from and it will be her original vintage piece from when she was my age! Crazzzy! 
 I'm not complaining though, means I get cool one of original pieces and at the same time I have a Mother than knows what I like and can grab me a good bargain up when she's shopping ;)!
So yes this little delight of a dress! Is original vintage, costing £3.50! It was so cheap because it does have slight damage to the front, but it is barely noticeable when on :) I can probably get it fixed too.
When I put my favourite belt on, it's hidden too!
Soo this dress is such an old school pattern, like a dog tooth check in mustard, blue and red.
Such a vintage fit too, I loved the neck of this dress. Roll neck with a zip going all the way up to the top.
I felt it was only fitting to match my hair and make-up to the style of this dress:
Slight obsession with this app at the moment too, hehe.
I just feel it suits my blog better and it's something a little different.
I love this hair style, it's my favourite one to do but can only be done when I have the time to back comb the life out of it! Literally! 
Foundation: MAC Studio fix in NC15 plus matching powder.
Brows: Illamasqua brow cake in Thunder.
Eyeliner: Collection 2000 black.
Mascara: MAC lasting lash? I want to say it's in a blue tube! Eek, damn my messy make-up bag for rubbing of the name!
Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo.
