Outfit: Retro Red Polka Dots



Sometimes it's fun to do the matchy-matchy retro thing. Most days I'd rather mix up my vintage influences into something less staid and more modern, but occasionally it's fun to try to do as literal a vintage look as possible...of course every piece I'm wearing is actually modern. Rather ironic considering I do have a lot of vintage in my closet! Anyway the inspiration point for this outfit was actually the gloves. I'm so excited about this style of glove from Unique Vintage; they're so retro with the little cut-outs but are actually touch gloves so you can continue using your devices while wearing them. They're so perfect I got this pair and another set in black. But it was putting the matching gloves with the dress that tipped me into retro styling. I should have done a more retro hairstyle as well, but despite the sun and the fact I didn't wear my jacket for most of these pictures it was a true October day and I wanted a hat so I could stay a bit warm!

  6. I really really love your style and all and would love to dress like the way you do, but it's really windy where I am and I was just wondering how you deal with wearing dresses & skirts all the time?

  10. @Anonymous, everyone has different ways of dealing, I know a lot of girls wear bike shorts underneath their skirts if they live somewhere windy. If I'm wearing tights & a longer skirt I don't really worry about it and if the forecast calls for a lot of winds I'd like just wear trousers.

  11. Do you actually take all the photos yourself? Is it on timer???

    You always look FAB. Love the red hair!

  12. @Clio Sigismondi, yes I do--there's a video linked in my FAQ showing how I do it. It'd be weird to take credit for someone else's work if I wasn't taking them! I alternate between a self-timer and using a camera remote.

  13. I adore this look on you - the colour of the dress and your beret go brilliantly with your hair! And the gloves are divine. I often take an accessory as the starting point - it sort of makes dressing more fun! Kx
