Visit Bitchslap cosmetics. They have bright, insanely awesome makeup colours. If you like Lime Crime-brights, you´re gonna love this one! Well, most likely. If I could I would get everything in their store.

I´ve been looking for a nice red dress for a while, and some time ago I finally found one. It´s a 50s wiggle dress. My desire for the red dress became even bigger after seeing Tarantinos; Inglorious Basterds. Mélanie Laurent, who plays Shoshanna Dreyfus, has a beautiful red dress, and a veiled hat in one of the ending scenes. I fell in love right there and then. It would be difficult to come across something exactly like hers, but at least mine has long sleeves. I wanted kind of a classy dress, so maybe with a veiled hat and som Julie Hewett-lipstick I can complete my wish to be a Shoshanna-lookalike. (Although I´m very sceptic towards my chances.)

Don´t you just hate being broke - and don´t you just LOVE spending money?! Especially when a beauty like this Betty Page-style dress appears in your mailbox. I got the dress 20% off on Ebay. Don´t get fooled by the 20%, the dresses from this specific Ebay-store are really pricy. But for me, it was very worth it! I got eroused just by opening the package. You can imagine what happend when I put it on.
Lucky for me it came just in time for the weekend. Me and my girlfriend were going to celebrate a friends birthday! I brought cupcakes, but they turned out a little - fail. It was so cold outside that they froze, and when we went inside where it was hot, they started to sweath. Mmm.. cupcakes! Luckily the rest of the evening turned out to be a great sucsess! We went dancing and got a burger at two in the morning. Perfect combination if you ask me. I also got a lot of compliments on my new dress from other girls while we were standing in line for the bathroom. I can´t say that it contributed in a negative way to the evening!
While I´m on the subject of Ebay I can mention that I got some cute veiling/netting to put on the authentic 50's headband I got some time ago. The veiling on the headband needed to be replaced, but the hat itself is extremly charming. I got one yard of black veiling for about 10 dollars including shipping. I´m really excited about finally putting the two together!

This summer I got weird questions from my boyfriend asking how big my head was. He wouldn´t say what it was about and like the annoying curious creature I am, of course I couldn´t let it go. Two days ago a good friend of ours came by to visit. When I open the door to let him in, I see an orange bag in his hand, and weirdly enough I didn´t ask what it was. Suddenly he reaches me the bag and in it was a black beret! The fabric is really solid, not like the regular cotton-hats you buy at clothing stores. My friend told me that he bought it when he was in France this summer. So sweet!
