Frocktober 2014:: Day 2 - 1950s Floral Delight (lazybones)

The 1950s is definitely one of my favourite fashion eras. Classic, feminine styling that's romantic too. 

The floral prints, the nipped in waists, the full skirts - it's all pretty fabulous.

Today's frock was given to me by one of my favourite Australian labels - lazybones. Playing off those classic vintage lines, this frock is easy to wear, with little styling required. In fact all I added were my shoes and some earrings. Et voila!

Featuring a beautiful retro-inspired print, it's one of those frocks that's going to get a lot of wears throughout Summer. 

Beauty Tip: In the 50s make-up was matte, and skin was porcelain. Which is perfect because I had just applied fake tan the day prior. 0_o I calmed things down by using a neutral powder which also helps to set the whole look. 

A winged eye is mandatory, and to help my wobbly hand, I use a small piece of washi tape like a stencil. I know. I am crazy. But it works. 

Dress: lazybones
