Woohoo, 2013 is here!
6 is my lucky number, and 2+0+1+3 = 6, so I am excited! (Yep I’m also onto my second strong coffee so I’m buzzing from all the caffeine! )
I hope you had a fun New Year’s Eve?
NYE as I like to call it can be a bit overrated at times, in my opinion, but I always like to celebrate it in some way. Most years I attend a house party, as getting a taxi or public transport home from the city or the beach can be really difficult on 1st Jan due to the sheer number of people out and about! However, this year Mr R and I were invited to a party at the last minute which was being held in the city… (In the end, the party did not eventuate and we ended up counting down at home with some friends, but that is another (long!) story LOL! At least we were able to have a nice meal out, get dressed up, and have a few drinks at a nearby bar! )
It was a “Las Vegas” theme and so I madly rushed through my wardrobes (I’m a clothing hoarder!) to try and find something suitable. I decided to go for a “retired cabaret singer” look (the retired bit will make sense in a minute!).
It meant I was able to wear my vintage (1980s) Cue dress! Cue is an Australian clothing company who is renowned for the quality of the tailoring in their dresses but also their jackets and suiting.
The fluffy thing in my arms is not my dog Bonnie – it’s a handbag that is meant to look like a dog! I received a lot of comments about that… Unfortunately this included random people barking at me (!) lol!
A close up of my makeup (FOTN = Face Of The Night) and the fascinator:
Key products used ~
ELES Brow Blender pencil* in Blonde 01 (previously reviewed here)
Dolly Wink liquid liner (previously reviewed here), and
Make Up Store lipstick in Redelicious (one of my favourite lippies ever and previously featured here)
I had planned to add some false lashes – the sparkly ones I bought at KAWAII recently (here) – but they were shedding glitter all over the place! I decided not to wear them as I was concerned I’d be getting glitter in my eyes all night.
