Outfit of the Day ~ 1950s housewife.

Brogues ~ New Look
Skirt ~ Primark
Cardigan ~ Monsoon via charity shop
Necklace ~ Accessorize
Belt ~ New Look
Lipstick ~ Illamasqua in Apocalips

I've recently been trying to force myself to wear things that have been sitting idly in my wardrobe, having not been touched for far too long. I re-discovered this skirt a few weeks ago, having originally spotted it in Primark a couple of years ago, fallen in love with it and its price tag (I think it was £12) and bought it even though it was a size too small at the time. This is the kind of thing I like to wear when my retro urges take hold. However, yesterday I also wanted to wear one of my new Illamasqua lipsticks out and serendipitously the boyfriend I were going to Brighton and Apocalips matches the teal on my skirt perfectly. I've also wanted to do an outfit shoot in front of that big red door for a while now as well, so everything really did fall into place rather nicely.
Recently I've started reading the biography of a lesser known author called Vita Sackville-West who I will be playing in a performance of 'Vita & Virginia' in a few months time. It's a play based on the letters between Vita and the decidedly more famous Virginia Woolf, who were lovers. I'm genuinely excited to be doing this play, it has a cast of two and should be a challenge, but definitely the good kind. Other than that I'm going on a mini holiday with the boyfriend for two weeks in Swanage which should be super nice.
