reneesturme 's Thoughts:

www.fashionfillers.com

Felt like dressing up like a proper lady from the fifties, so finally made the decision to finally wear this red lace original fifties dress I got a while ago at a local second-hand store called Karma Karma. And finally found the jacket I wanted for such a long time, thanks to the lovely Faranak. I did my hair really well before I went out, but these shots were taken at the end of the day and as you can see it’s been raining…

Went to the center to look for some glasses I’m hunting for since a couple of months, and finally found them in a little vintage/antique frames-store in the Jordaan (cosiest neigborhood of Amsterdam). As you can see the glasses in it are just samples, so I still need to put proper glasses in them to suit my eyes. But these are exactly the ones I was looking for so I’m happy! Excuse me about the quality of the pictures, both of the lenses of my SLR are broken…

I actually put together about all of my ‘foundation of style’ items, because the coat, purse, shoes, belt and hairdo are all things I sometimes throw in an outfit just to give it that extra touch, and now I just used them all to create this feminine fifties look.

The product I would incorporate in my ‘foundation of style’ would actually be the foundation, because it’s just the one and only real base of your make-up, which is the start of every ordinary to extra-ordinary look.
