Hi hi, this is what I wore to my work dinner event on Friday. Some of you have already seen my twitpics from the night. Every year, I am in charge of organising my office 'dinner & dance', and this year, my team and I decided to do a 'retro-themed' event. And it's really happening, because for the first time (in a while I suppose) that I can really see most people putting in the effort to dress to the theme. My whole team and I went all out, of course, and we turned up from the various decades of years past (50s, 60s, 70s).
I went for a classic winged liner with red lips look, rather than the retro 'mod' style of Edie Sedgwick/ Twiggy type of big eyes pale lips combo, simply because of my rad outfit. No time to set my hair, cos we had to be there early running about and setting up the venue.
Here is the MU breakdown:
Foundation: Lancome Teint Miracle, MUFE HD Powder
Cheeks: MAC Sculpt and Shape, NARS Mata Hari
Eyes: NARS Abyssinia, NARS Sophia, Loreal Super Liner, Lashes from SASA (dunno brand)
Lips: Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque Dragon, MAC Russian Red
I wish I can post pics of my whole team and I cos we really look like the cast of a musical or something, but well, here is not a place to do so. Shucks.
To get into character, we all got these crazy glasses (about $15 from Far East Plaza, dunno the shop name).
And my outfit of the night, was made by my cousin (she ain't a pro tailor, just really really enthusiastic, creative and artistic --- if you remember, the Corpse Bride from last year's halloween -- yup that's her) sewed my dress and the mega pouffy petticoat. Shoes from New Look. Black Cardi from Basic House, Pearls from Warehouse. Some vintage black belt I found in my wardrobe.
And a few more pics from when I was trying out the whole ensemble and goofing about:
** I played with photoshop filter effects in the next pic**
And just to show one of my cousin's works in progress -- she drew/ painted this little pic -- I am kind of amazed at the likeness.
Here's her work, and the actual pic side by side.
That's all, hope you enjoyed this!
Thanks for looking!
