Glamified with MCM

24th June 2012




Curly-wurly, slap punch in makeup, totally braless, demure and non-outrageous stomach sucking attire, the MCM Blogger Makeover series is back in full swing.  My eurphoric affection for 1950s fashion is evidently proofed in here and here, so for the outfits I took the inspiration from the elegance of Old Shanghai, daytime-evening-glam with a postmodern twist, head to toe in single colour per outfit red and black, co-ordinated with the selected MCM bags as featured – Grace tote bag in bright red and First Lady business portfolio bag in black.  What do you think?

Many many thanks to H+MUA Diane Moar, Photographer Camille Sanson for being the best of the best, Sane Communications for organising the shoot and MCM for inviting me again.

Clothing credits: Outfit 1: Red lace body and feathers sequined skirt – MARINA QURESHI, Giant crystal ring – ANTON HEUNIS @ MY-WARDROBE.COM.  Outfit 2: Black sheer lace blouse – GOLDIE LONDON, black broderie wide-legged trousers – TBA, black and chrome necklace – MONKI, black round sunglasses – URBAN OUTFITTERS.
