Pleats & Platforms

I was recently contacted by Zalando to choose an outfit from their online store to style. What a treat! After lots (upon lots!) of browsing, I finally decided on the Vero Moda Gwen dress; I couldn’t resist the contrasting collar and pleated fabric! To emphasize the 1960s look, I chose an olive pair of Aces by London sandals. When the parcel arrived, I decided to style the dress by ticking off my 60s checklist – beehive, winged eyeliner, platform shoes: check, check, and check!

  1. Winged eyeliner is my go-to makeup decision when I feel like crap in the morning – it always makes me feel instantly pretty and girly!

  2. The eye makeup compliments the outfit perfectly! (or maybe I just obsessively love winged eyes like that, lol)

  7. Beautiful outfit! Your sandals I am particularly in love with – the colour is so perfect – very sixties, with a little nod to seventies hippie style as well!

  11. Thank you for your lovely comment, Jo! :)

    You look great in 60s style, it really suits you! I wish I could perfect the 60s eyeliner – as much as I love to draw, I find it so difficult to paint my own eyes! 😀

    Love the dress, the black accents are brilliant!
