Venus As A Boy

This outfit is my nod to the 90's, when you have lived through the 90's as a teen you have a love/hate relationship with it. One of the things I always loved were the hairstyles, flicking through Mizz, J-17 and Bliss magazine I often dreamt of wearing makeup like the models and having cool hair!  Yep there was no You Tube, we had to read and look at step by step photos -which were not always clear. Now you can just google it, and see in motion how to wing your eye's, fish-plait your hair. Wow I feel so old, but I know I'm not it's just crazy how much technology has grown!  

Dress: Glamorous *
Top (worn under): Matalan *
Socks: River Island (Hola Bami giveaway prize)
Shoes: Primark via eBay
Necklace and spike bracelet: eBay
Bangles: Charity shop
Ring: H&M

Still I'm glad that now at least my blog is like my own magazine, I never thought I would ever write, edit and photography anything that would be on the Internet. Trust me any 90's teen will tell you how My Space blow are minds, yeah sad times. So rocking my Bjork hair and my new Glamorous dress, I felt like this is how I should have looked. We won't go into what I actual looked like as a teen, not good. How amazing is this dress, I do love the cut out detail as I think it looks so cool to layer it over a pattern top.

  4. I used to wear my hair like that when I was a wee teenager! I might need to try it out again.

    I always think I would have been SO much more stylish as a teenager if I had access to blogs/youtube. These kids don't know how lucky they are! x
