Retro OOTD

Something you don't know about me, my heart is old. I'm fascinated with 'Olden Times' & 'Vintage'. I like everything black & white, I listen to Madonna almost everyday - Holiday, Vogue, Like A Prayer, Get Together, Get Into The Groove, Papa Don't Preach. When I listen to these songs, I feel....Alive, simply put. I truly feel I will fit better in the 60's- wear long gloves to the airport, wear red lipstick everyday, bake pies, wait desperately for my soldier husband....and maybe be like one of the women in Mad Men. Oh, and I really really want one of those vintage tring-tring telephones, for some reason.
That's why this Retro OOTD was at the top of my to-do list. 

Dress: MANGO. It's called 'Dress Memphis'. It is cut & wrapped in the front- like a slit. I wore a black tube top inside, coz the mesh is quite low.
White Bow Belt: I really can't remember! It's cheap though =). I tried wearing a black belt, but it didn't show much.
Bag: Esbeda. Old.
Sunglasses: MANGO
Bangles: Babu Churiwala. I wanted to wear a black chunky bangle, but they are always so HUGE for my wrists! Damn "One Size"! Even these are a little loose.
Watch: Fossil. Very old, ironically.
Shoes: Stop! (shown here)

* In case you missed my previous post, the dress & sunglasses were my bro's birthday gifts to moi...bless him.

Will show you the make-up in another post.

Enjoy the 2 Holidays! =)

  5. How is it that you keep looking more & more cute each time I see an OOTD! :D

    I also love retro prints - one of my fav tops is a black with white polka dots, I love the puffy feminine sleeves as well as the lovely floral prints that were in vogue during the 70s.. I actually like the 70s a lot & keep cribbing to my hubby that I shd have been born in the late 50's so that I cld have been a teen during the 70s! :D.. & I love "That 70's show" :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
