Pin-up Sunday

So today I did something totally different! Emi and I took part in an all day vintage pin-up styling and photo shoot. Here's the details from the poster - we had a lesson in vintage hair and make-up, a pin up posing lesson and we had some professional photos taken (we will get to see those on Wednesday).
 
Here's a few photos of the preparation for the photo shoot - my hair extensions are of course 100% synthetic! So not idea to put into hot rollers, so they are sticking out and looking pretty silly.


Here's my first look of the day ALMOST finished - it was kind of cold in the photography studio, so I was rocking a vintage coat (not mine) it's pretty amazing (I wish I could have taken it home!).
 
 Here's look number one all completed - complete with a butterfly hair clip!
Here's my second look with my "up" do - I think this is my favourite of the two looks - mostly due to the fact I never have my hair up as I always thought it was just too short! But I think this is pretty incredible, especially with the pretty flowers. I also had a full length shot taken with my wee digital camera of me wearing this amazing collectif dress.
Here's a couple of photo's of Emi and I looking like fancy ladies in our pretty dresses, hair and make-up. I really love the second photo - I think we look so cute.

Finally, a photo of me back at home, after I had taken out my contacts and put my glasses back on, I think I will have to try and get better with this cats eye make up so I can do it more often as I think it looks great with my retro frames.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend xoxox

Oooh la la.....you look so lovely. Love the hair in the second shots too. What a fun day! I'm still trying to perfect the cats eye makeup....I find it so hard to get both eyes to look the same. Hopefully one day it will come naturally! Xx
