Travel diaries – Lady in Red

The colour red is such a bold and statement colour. I think it requires lots of confidence to wear because you will most definitely get lots of stares.

I normally have my unbothered hat on while on holiday. My motto is that I will be gone in a few weeks or days so “what the heck!”

Before I share my outfit, I just wanted to show off my makeup skills.😜.
I have literally just touched down and everything is already glowing.  This natural sun light is great for selfies but also used the Live Love make up bronze palette.

This gorgeous off the shoulder maxi dress was take from my mother’s closet. I loved it at first sight and just had to have it. The colour is very eye catching. It’s totally on tend and the thin straps mean you don’t have to worry about the dress rolling off your shoulders.

The frills on this dress is very flattering and great for hiding my problem areas

I decided to tie a knot on the hem of this dress because it’s not quiet the right length for my tall frame. But when I like am item, I  go for it and just make it work.
I believe am working it! Hopefully it’s not too obvious either 😆.

Anatomy of the 70’s fashion

The seventies is definitely before my time but I really enjoy experimenting with different looks and fashions from different era’s.

I am breaking down this look to share how I achieved it. Enjoy !

For the times when you cant afford a real SUEDE skirt, … a suedette one from New look will do just fine.  See, you couldn’t even tell the difference. 😀

I also really like the fit of this over the knee boots, not only does it got over my calf ( yes thats a common issue for me) but it also fits my tights.
