OOTD: Dinner Lady

According to my Dad, anyway. Thanks Dad. I wore this last weekend when I went to visit the folks.

Face:
Eyes: Shadows from Sleek Bohemian
Cheeks: Almay blush in 130 peach
Lips: Morgana Cryptoria Vegan Lipstick in Twinkling Rubies (thanks Rach!)

The dress is 70's, but the shape and the collar does give it a bit of a wartime feel. I very rarely wear red because of my hair, but I thought this dress called for it so I went and raided Primarni to find a cardi. I'd check the shop I bought the dress from out if you're in the UK and in to vintage as she's got some lovely bits and bobs up there - this was only £18! Alright, still quite expensive for something that someone probably died in, but whatever.

  10. Yeah but a FIT dinner lady, like on a cruise liner in a black and white fourties movie, and then they put down the soup ladle and start dancing about to some cool Andrews Sisters tune. And is the hair darker too? I think what I am trying to say is you look very nice. x

  16. Hot damn, woman! Someone should make an emoticon for that cartoon wolf whistling with the bulging eyes. (Or I could go find a gif of it, but I'm lazy.)

  17. OMG! You do look very wartime pinup, I LOVE IT! Also, pairing the red cardi with the dress = brilliant. You have such an awesome sense of style.
    Dads sure do make the most useful comments about fashion. My dad always used to say "Where's the rest of that outfit?" whenever I was wearing anything less than coveralls, lol!
