By the way, I am going to take the pictures of my wedding outfit today in one of my breaks!
Thursday, 2 June 2011
Also a BIG thank you to my readers! Never thought I'd be this popular. Its great to hear suggestions of blog posts and answer your questions and stuff.
So the weather is boiling hot today-seriously weird for Welsh weather! And I've started to get my summer clothes out. Unfortunately, my outfit today isn't the most original, just a tank top and shorts although I am planning on putting on a very pretty vintage sun hat with a big lacy bow when I go out for a walk later. Nice to take a break after revising. I HATE revision so much!
Also, sorry for not posting the Royal Wedding pictures. They'll also be coming up as quickly as possible!
If possible, there will also be some posts and sets about 60s fashion as a new series of The Royal is out on Sunday and its going to be getting me all nostalgic.
Thanks and Sorry again Everybody!

From top to bottom:Cover of book with selected pictures, society lady illustration, Princess Beauty and the Royal Palace ready for the party.
The book isn't just Sleeping Beauty though, its actually kind of his biography for children! It connects how his career was born with the classic fairy tale and at the end of the book you will find a timeline of key points in his life and career. I have to say, Christian Lacroix is my new favourite designer!

Magical Times From Long Ago by beth3796 featuring skinny fit jeans
We have light evenings now, and my parents and I spent our first one driving to a cafe by the sea where we always go. It brought me back memories of when we used to do this almost every night. That was before I started secondary school...Its important that we make time for mooments like these now! Day 16 " a song that you used to love but now hate". I chose this song because I loved ut but then we had to do a very complicated dance to it in my dance school and I could never get it right. I ended up loathing the song because I knew I couldn't dance to it like everyone else

30 Day Song Challenge-Day 1 by beth3796 featuring vintage looking rings
So I thought I'd do the 30 day song challenge. Day 1 is "Your Favourite Song". Now, favourite song chops and changes so I picked what my favourite song is at the moment. I chose Your Song, Ellie Goulding. I chose it because its pretty and transports to to some blissful and calm little world....:) Plus the piano music is lovely and sweet. It makes me wish I could play piano haha! LISTEN: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9AFMVMl9qE

Toothpaste Kisses by beth3796 featuring peacock feather jewelry
I'll cradle you
I'll win your heart
with a woop-a-woo
pulling shapes just for your eyes
so with toothpaste kisses and lines
I'll be yours and you'll be
Lay with me, I'll lay with you
we'll do the things that lovers do
put the stars in our eyes
and with heart shaped bruises
and late night kisses
I can just imagine myself walking down a street in New York, wearing this outfit with this song on my ipod.

I wasn't very keen on her school uniform but I guess anyone who has to spend 5 days in one anyway wouldn't. Though the dresses she wears are elegant and beautiful. I especially love the dress with the gold flowers on it. It kind of reminds me of the curtains in my grandmother's house-in a good way of course as they have a sort of elegant, Parisian feel to them. In fact, nearly all of the dresses she wears in An Education have a bold pattern printed onto them. During the summer, bold printed dresses were very popular and available in almost every shop. To give a sixties feel to the look, try adding a beehive hairstyle or another elegant updo and key 1960s make-up.
This is also shown throughout the film. In the school scenes she doesn't wear much at all if any but she does when she is dressed elegantly. She wears red bright or deep red ipstick, lots of mascara and eyeliner (google "twiggy eye makeup"for help) but its very important not to wear to much foundation as the main make-up trend for this period in time was dark eyes. The lipstick doesn't always have to be such a bright red if you have a lighter hair colour or different complection.
