50’s A-Line and Brown Wedges

I went with a 50’s vibe today. 🙂

The dress I have on isn’t available anymore, but here are some cute 50’s style options for you!

The Sleeveless Belted Shirt Dress from Cynthia Rowley is almost identical – except, as the name implies, it’s sleeveless.

This Linen Pinstripe Dress has the same adorable stripes, PLUS pockets. Bonus!

Another linen one – the Linen Shirt Dress from TJ Maxx has cute cuffed sleeves.

Franco Sarto wedges are a little on the expensive side – they range from $90-$140 when you get them directly from the company. I got mine from Marshalls for $40ish I think (it’s been a while). They’re super nice, so keep your eyes out for a pair at retailers like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Ross.

My Book of the Day is  When Hearts are Light Again by Emilie Loring. I haven’t read it yet, my mom just bought it from a book sale. This copy is from 1945!

until next time. 🙂

50’s Retro Makeup Tutorial

I had a lot of time on my hands today, so I came up with this makeup tutorial for you guys! It’s a really unique retro eye and lip, and I hope you enjoy it.

Using a shimmery eye cream like this one, apply in even strokes with your finger. If you use a brush it will leave streaks.

Apply a thin line of Matte Black Automatic Eyeliner and extend the line a quarter of an inch past the eye to create a winged effect.

Tightline the bottom with the same eyeliner. (only follow 2nd half of instructions in link.)

Red lips and curls are a must, of course. ❤
