Outfit: Ticket To Ride

Wearing: vintage 1960’s dress, vintage Burberry trench, Primark shoes and tights, JumpFromPaper bag, River Island earrings.

Many things inspired this post, after collecting a few things separately they all came to together and resulted in this. It is strange wearing a wig, when you don’t recognise yourself in the mirror, you can become a character. I didn’t wear the wig to go out in and without it the outfit looked quite normal but I thought it was fun. If I had thicker hair I would totally go for a bob, as for the pink I would love my hair in a washed out colour, neon is a bit much even for me. In this outfit I felt like a Mod. Stood waiting for something, perhaps a get-away car? Waiting and waiting, until deciding to make a dash for it!

The Body Shop make-up look and JumpFromPaper bag are something pretty special I want to talk about in more detail and will do so in separate posts.

  1. Love, love, love that hair! The individual pieces are quite conservative, but put together with the wig and the bag create a really fun character look. I’m waiting patiently for one of the bag styles to come back in stock, your pictures are not helping me with waiting!

    • It wasn’t the ‘Cheese’ bag was it? That was my first choice but it was out of stock, I love them all though!

        • Ha ha I <3 Cheese!! My bag actually was sent from in the UK, I think they have different websites for different countries as I saw on their face book people asking about international postage. I was gifted my bag though so they may have paid the charges upfront?

          • I will ask when I email the PR girl I talk to and check. BTW your blog link doesnt link up when you comment any more, dont know if its because I changed to WordPress?

  2. Pearl, you have made my day with this look! Just so sixties. It’s definitely my favourite fashion decade and suits my silhouette but I just love it for the mini skirts and all the white dresses and shoes and the massive earrings and the flicked out hair and the thickly lined eyes – just amazing. Have you been watching that new drama White Heat with Clare Foy on BBC2 on a Thursday night? The first two eps are set in the sixties and there’s some great fashion, I think you’d love it. The wig looks fantastic on you, for a moment I thought you’d actually taken the plunge and had it cut and dyed!!! Very jealous of your lovely dress and burberry mac. I spotted one of the latter on the designer rail in cow a few months ago but it was going for ┬ú60 and I really couldn’t justify spending that much at the time. One day though!
