1960's Dress, White Heels: Thrifted.
Vintage Earrings: Gift.
Lipstick in MAC'S Myth.
Hair Extensions: c/o Irresistible Me

Hello for the second time today!
I wore this very vintage outfit last Thursday inspired by Lana Del Rey in the National Anthem music video. I've had this beauty of a 60's dress for almost a month now after thrifting it in Akron. I've found it frustrating on how to wear it though, and what exactly to wear it with. It's a somewhat uncomfortable polyester fabric that doesn't breath well, and the pretty details on the bodice and waist are what I wanted to keep the focus on. So with these two problems, I knew I needed 1) a somewhat cool day to wear it and 2) to keep the outfit simple. 

I wish you could see the details of this dress a little better in the photos--it's just beautiful! I have to admit, it was a bit strange to wear a straight skirt silhouette instead of a full skirt. Definitely was unsure of how to pose!  I put in my extensions to get some more full, voluminous hair for a complete 1960's look . It's crazy how well these match my hair color, but it's hard for them to blend into the texture of my hair. It's not really anything faulty with the extensions, just I have a very hard (and strange) texture of hair to match to which the extensions don't. I tried curling them which did help a bit, but it's still obvious often times that I have extensions in. 

I usually don't write much about fashion/my outfit because I feel as though it's boring and every post is kind of the same more or less. But this outfit had a lot of interesting details and things that I wanted to talk about, so I couldn't not say anything!

See you all tomorrow for OCTOBER! ♥

With much love, Lauren.
