I literally took over my neighbors garden on a hill for this evening’s photo shoot. My Daughter chose to have me pose next to the “ego” tree that I used as a tree house as a little girl. My Daughter giggled as I told her the story between pics. What a GREAT moment!
As you can now tell… I have a FIXATION to polka-dots!!! A few months ago I didn’t have more than one dress in large polka dots and now thanks to my Gwynnie Bee subscription I wear them in all types of styles and colors. What a treat!
The design reminds me of the classic 50’s fashions and decided to wear my platform heels and dressed my look up with a black chandelier necklace and matching classic bead earrings. My makeup is a sophisticated creams and browns with my pinup matte red lipstick. To bring a more youthful look I used my highlighting white/cream eyes shadow as my lower eye eye-liner to reflect a larger white area and camouflaged my under eye wrinkles when the light is reflected by the powder. It really is a look to get used to but a great technique for photos or a night out on the town.
I flipped my hair and bangs over for a sophisticated look and after placing my hair in a high bun I tied my “beehive” bun wrap over it. Don’t be afraid to use hair pieces to tie in your looks. They are quite inexpensive and the fastest thing to get a pretty up-do that looks like you took a long time to do. I literally did my hair in less than 5 minutes.
Measurements: 50 – 44 – 54 Height: 5’0
I’m wearing Size 18W and had room in the bust/upper body lengthwise. The dress has a sewn on tie that helps accent your waist area and gives a perfect fit. NOTE: The material has NO stretch and recommend to order a size up if you’re not petite and like more wiggle room for your upper body. This dress is very well made and am impressed with the added detail of sewing a pretty white lace at the inside hem to ensure you don’t pull the thread. This happens to me a lot as I like to tuck my leg under me at work and at times my heel gets stuck on the hem and pulls the thread out. I don’t have to worry on this with this detail.
The white dress with black polka-dots that I’m wearing is not available on line but they do have it in red and black polka-dots that looks VERY pretty. Available in Size 14W-24W at the following link:
