Retro Thursday

Well, every day is a retro day for me style-wise, but today I went super extra retro with a very nostalgic look that clearly nods to a bygone era – the sixties.

There’s just something about black-and-white stripes and blue eyeshadow that go together in such an effortlessly retro look. Often I peruse Pinterest in hopes of finding fashion inspiration, or makeup inspiration, and I definitely found it this past week!

I love colorful little bobby pins to put on the side of my hair. To me, it adds an instant 60’s/70’s look that I just can’t get enough of. I’ve always been drawn to the heavy eye makeup and nude lipstick look, and big, voluptuous hairstyles. I think it all began when my mom first let me watch the Beach Party films with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello as a child. There was something about the smiling, beach-clad girls with their thick black eyeliner and big hair that forever inspired me to model my everyday look after them.

So that’s today’s look! I paired the shirt with a bright red skirt to add a bold splash of color, and for some reason I forgot to take a picture of the full ensemble. Oops! Oh well, you get the idea.

Have a lovely Thursday!
