Frankly, I don't give a dress


Check out this sweet little number! I bought as a gift for myself after eyeing it for a while on the well known ModCloth.com; Mod, retro, indie & vintage clothing. And it's a gift, because in my book, this is so expensive that I'll probably not be able to afford anything else aside from food until my next paycheck rolls in. This dress is obviously cut in a 1950's inspired silluett, red, and smokin' hot! It kind of reminds me of the legendary white Marilyn dress, and definitely pin up inspired. I got this dress in medium, but I was worried about it being to small over the chest and too short. I knew the large was going to be to big around my waist and the small would probably be to tight over my chest and the length too short, but fitting aroung my waist.. - Um, yeah. Difficult!! Anyway, I think it worked out! It's definitely not to tight around the waist, probably a little loose, but it''s fine. The length turned out to be great, even though I was worried that it would be too short. I'm 5'9 and the length goes just under my knees. The fabric is really nice and thick. The skirt is lovely, flowy, and the color of the dress is more blue red than orange, which is great for my particular skin. This is my new favorite dress!

Det ser ut til at vi må spise middag på en finere plass sånn at vi kan kle oss fint og gå på do for å pudre neser og legge nye lag med lebestift! Så må vi få tatt et skikkelig bilde sånn at du får vist deg frem! Å jada!

Hei!
Jeg har blitt helt fascinert av 40 og 50-tallet i det siste, og har snubla over youtubekanalen din, og bloggen. Kjempeinspirerende:) Det har gått med noen timer kan man si! Men til saken. Dette er kanskje ikke det rette stedet å stille sånne spørsmål, men har ingen youtubebruker, så. Jeg vil altså veldig gjerne prøve meg på alle disse frisyrene, men håret mitt er jo ikke i stand til det sånn som det er nå. Så jeg lurer på hvordan håret ditt er klipt? Hva sier man til frisøren liksom? Har skjønt at "layers" er en viktig ting. Jeg har jo ingen pannelugg heller..er egentlig helt lost, så hadde blitt superglad om du kunne gitt meg litt info om hvordan du har klipt håret, og hva som er greiest hvis man er helt grønn, noe jeg definitivt er!
Kjempelekker kjole forresten, har sikla på klærne der selv:|

Håper du orker å bry deg med å svare:)
