Red And Turquoise

I really like this red and turquoise combo but not wear it often, I think it was very popular in the fifties. The silk dress is a Monsoon one, via Oxfam online, it needs some alterations as the top is too wide and I am  not sure how to tackle that. Of course that is never a problem in pics, just in real life.

I bought the ring off Ebay a few years ago and been enjoying wearing it. Apparently it  belonged to a Mr. George Wood who lied about his age and joined the Merchant Navy in 1916 aged  14. He rose to leading signalman, which amused him as he was not good at spelling. It's nice to wear a bit of history.

Pink and Green

Photograpy by Zoran Arizanovic

I am wearing my new linen jacket with lovely pink and green dots which I found recently at a  second shop here in Breda. I am planning to sew a circle skirt in one of those colours if I gather the courage to wear it. I usually wear slim skirts but I think it's time to try something new. My lipstick is Pink a Punch by Rimmel. It is brighter in real life; it has a creamy texture and feels comfortable, really nice for Spring.

Minimal Makeup

This is my idea of minimal makeup- you need a minimum amount of red lipstick. I am wearing Illamasqua Salacious  as a base and Revlon Cherries in the Snow on top for added moisture and comfort. The Illamasqua is a wonderful lipstick, very pigmented and very matte but for me it's too drying on its own. Recently I have been using it as a base for other more creamier lipsticks and it's a good combo, nice colour and increased staying power.

I am wearing  my second-hand Burberry raincoat bought off Ebay and a cotton red polka dot dress. It was a baggy  and a bit frumpy eighties dress but I altered it and now it's a decent looking day dress.

The necklace is a souvenir from my past job as a Mermaid. I retired recently, it's hard to be fabulous and alluring all the time.
