Betty Draper inspired...

Can you tell I have been watching Mad Men again?! 2 Mad Men inspired outfits in the space of a week may just give it away! I panic bought this dress with a credit voucher before it expired [learn from my mistakes: DON'T LOSE YOUR RECEIPTS!] but actually I love it! It is similar to this dress from Topshop but much dressier...

Dress: Mela from New Look, belt: New look, shoes: ASDA, jacket: Principles, sunglasses:  Accessorize
 I did take some photos without my sunglasses on but the light was so bright that I was squinting horribly in each one. For a change though, I was glad it was sunny, two of my best friends came to stay and we spent the weekend just chilling out and catching up...perfection!

Sort of an outtake but it shows off the gorgeous pleated skirt...
I wasn't intending to wear much make-up (if any) with this outfit but I was paranoid about my nails not matching with anything else so I  whipped out my trusty lipstain to tie everything together. With the addition of some flicked liquid eyeliner, I was retro-ified and good to go! 


Hilarious pin-up style pose.... with a Ford KA, oh what glamourous lives bloggers lead! ;)


What has been inspiring you recently? Do you panic buy clothes?

Very Betty :) Love green on you and it goes perfectly with the red lippy.
I'm a bit of a impulse buyer but I've started making lists on clipix and try to not buy anything without weight it up first and thinking about whaat I can wear it with x

That dress is gorgeous! I'm terrible for forgetting about vouchers, I had a bunch of Amazon vouchers from last Christmas and only realised they were expired a month ago xo

Niki said...

Wow, that's some great panic buying! The dress is so cute and a lovely colour. I've made a few panic purchases when vouchers are about to run out, in a funny way it kinda forces me out of my comfort zone as I end up buying something I wouldn’t normally.
