Pin up look using a 50s style little black dress


I was thinking that I should really drive my incipient hoarding tendencies into something more constructive for my wardrobe. Maybe instead of hundreds of rings and really, really impractical shoes, I should start building a great collection of little black dresses.

For someone with so many clothes, I have very few of those. And the one I’m wearing in this photos is the most recent addition to the madness that is my closet.

I just got it from an alternative clothing store from UK that’s technically specialized in Gothic clothing, but has so much amazing stuff, it was hard to choose just one dress. Well, I did get a blue hair dye too – I’m planning something epic for my hair – DIY article coming soon.

I think this dress might just be the perfect casual little black dress for summer. It’s 98% cotton, very airy and has the most adorable details: slightly puffy shoulders, a true sweetheart neckline, 3/4 quarter sleeves, a bow detail at the back and a classic 50s silhouette with a fitted waist and flared skirt. Scored!!!

The moment I got the package (it arrived in about a week), I could hear this dress begging for a pin up look and I like to listen when my clothes talk to me.:)))) Besides, it’s been a while since I channeled my inner pin up, so here I am: hair scarf and bold lipstick included.

This is the way the dress was styled on the site and I like it a lot. I have to find a petticoat and try this version as well. As you can see it would be longer for somebody that's not as tall as I am, but other than that is supper flattering for any silhouette and height. I think it would look nice for plus size girls as well - it just has that cut that looks amazing on anyone.

And then there’s the statement necklace – I love myself some serious rhinestone action resting on my boobs. It was sent to me by a German online store called Happiness Boutique and it’s glorious. I absolutely love the mix of silver chains and clear rhinestones and how long it is. They have amazing customer care, free shipping worldwide and the necklace came very fast and nicely packaged. If you’re ordering from Europe, you won’t have to deal with the custom and they also have a customer reward program that you can take advantage of.

This time I didn't went with the classic red lipstick - a staple for pinup makeup. Instead  I chose a dark plum (it's from Dior - color 862, Hypnotic Red).

The multiway convertible dress

I finally got my hands on one of those multiway convertible dresses, you guys have probably seen at least once by now. And man, I’m hooked – this  dress is so versatile I spent a few hours just trying different ways of  styling it – some my ideas, other inspired by obsessively watching videos on You Tube about the many different ways to wear it.

The special thing with this type of dress is something simple, but quite ingenious: it’s basically a skirt with two very long sections in the front that you can tie and wrap around you to create different dress styles from the waist up so it looks like you have a lot more than one dress in the same color. And we’re not talking, 2 or 3 more – I think I’ve seen over 50 variations. The skirt (bottom part) can also be different: long, midi, short length wise, asymmetrical or normal hem, pleated or simple style.

Mine was meant to be a maxi dress, but since I’m super tall, it’s not quite there. It would however be a very long dress for almost anybody else under 1.75m (5ft8). Thankfully it’s slightly longer at the back and very stretchy so it still looks good.

I love the color I choose, but I wouldn’t mind having more in all my favorite shades. Since I’m a big fan of versatility and I like the cotton blend this is made of, I plan to wear it a lot this summer.
