If you've been following my blog for a while now, then you already know that I love the classy, sophisticated style of the 1950s with their full swingy skirts, off-shoulder dresses and classic red lips (usually on Marilyn Monroe).

On my lips: NYX retractable lip liner in MPL 12 "Dark Red" and Maybelline COLORsensational lipstick in 645 "Red Revival"
The minimal accessories in action:) I curled my hair towards my face and then brushed them out to go all out with the 1950s effect:)
What do you guys think of the outfit?:)
