Drum roll please. After a magical weekend at my sister and brother-in-law’s wedding, Kit the ‘ball and chain’ has finally broke free and Style Slicker is back online.
I know you’ve been waiting for ages to see the result of my DIY Maid-of-Honour dress, well well well without further ado, here it is. The pink silk-taffeta dress tied with a black velvet belt, paired with the matching pink loose-fitted lace jacket-top were constructed from the original 1950s bridal pattern, and I must admit toileing (mock up) were not involved in the process, it was worth the risk. P.s I’m ready for hire.
Left: I couldn’t believe when I bought this amazing antique necklace from an antique jewellery shop in Camden Lock, Angel. It was by ”Exquisite” W.A.P Watson Ltd, circa 1950s, manufactured in Solihull (I did my research). Quite lucky I was able to wear a pink Folli Follie watch for time management.
Right: Maxmara peep toes in nude, thanks again to The Editeur for saving me from shoe panic attack.
Beauty essentials on the day: Benefit body balm, Paul & Joe matte pressed powder and Stila dual lip and cheek cream in Petunia both from ASOS, Topshop glitter nail varnish in pink, and Boots N’7 stay perfect eye mousse in plum.
Right: A Sushilla gold ring with pink fading rough cut stone, worn for the main outfit.
Another accessories to coordinate with the Shanghai Tang qipao dress – Shanghai Tang floral print satin clutch, vintage necklace as before, Follie Follie rose gold and blue croc watch, and Folli Follie magenta diamante ring.
……now now, I really do fancy a burger and fries, I’ve been starving for weeks.
