The Long White Evening Dress, Look #1

The Fashington Press has challenged the infamous 'Long White Dress' (LWD) that has been cast away and forgotten for way too long. During one of our vintage outings we picked up this classic elasticated waist chiffon dress from Two Tart for $10 and tried to breathe life into it. In the first of the three looks to come, we present the 'Evening White Dress'! Paint your white canvas with glitter and gold. The chunkier the better! We used a selection of chunky handcrafted jewelery by designer Shahnaz Hughson, available on her Etsy shop. Everyone needs a Hepburn beaded clutch that pretty much goes with anything, we raided Donna DeAngelis's stock at Modern Matter and found this really cute classic purse. Try out some of the glitter dust eye make up...make it smokey and heavy. Remember all you have is a simple white dress so you need to stand out!

The Avril Revival

For all our readers that are punky, funky and cant do pretty, here is how to work the 'vintage look' along with your modern ensembles! We have an Avril Lavigne inspired shoot (in the rain and all the jazz).
What you will need : : Tomb Raider'esk outfit, old tooled ethnic bags (best purchases are made on travels to places that are great at making handicrafts). Old socks make great wrist bands...try dishing out your grandpa's argyle knitted ones! Old military boots or footwear that has done its time. Big bright watch : : don't stop at women's watches...try out big ass men's watches. Raid your camping paraphernalia for some nice props- water cans, D-rings. A really messy head of hair and a whole load of attitude ties everything together. Want to push it a little further? Darken your eyebrows with power based make up and dark eyes. Don't forget to spray on some macho perfume before you get outta that door.
