Guest Post: One Dress, Four Styles

Saturday, 1 September 2012

Hi everyone, I’m Millie from (incase ya want to check out my blog) and Hayley has been kind enough to let me guest post on her blog, soooo I thought I’d talk a bit about the best thing known to man right now: the LRD (Little Retro Dress) which you can get preeetty much anywhere, but I got mine from Forever 21 (pictured below).

 There are a bajillion and one ways to style it so I thought I’d show you a few of my faves!

I decided to contrast the peachyness of the dress with an electric blue because they’re both colours associated with the swingin' 60’s and the quirkiness really POPS! (Very sorry about the condition of my shoes, it seems I walked through the straps at a party. Impossible? Believe me, it’s not.)

It’s always so awkward choosing what to wear for something that’s meant to be smart/casual so my advice is to always go more towards casual. I pick a lovely dress like my LRD and dress it down by layering a slouchy t-shirt or tying a shirt over it.

Here I simply threw on a lace top for a more elegant look. I’m not sure what it is that just makes the outfit, maybe it’s the unusual colour of the lace top or that they’re usually worn non-layered for a slutty look and here it’s a bit of a shock to see it look so different and classy, y’know?

This outfit is pretty much the same as the smart/casual one except I chucked on some converse to add to the grunge which contrasts the gorgeous girlyness of my LRD. Is it weird that I’m a little bit in love with oversized sunnies? Yeah probably, but you couldn’t pay me to give them up!
I hope you all liked my guest post and if you get a chance I would be soooo grateful if you could check out my blog! (
