Dressing Up

I may be nineteen but I still find dressing up to be something very enjoyable once in a while. I think I often still rake through my mum's old clothes to reminisce on past times when I was younger when I dressed up as fairy's or princesses in old ball gowns, and once in a while you end up finding something you would wear on a regular basis. 

I guess this outfit is really just a bit of fun, mixing this 80's puffy sleeved top with a long velvet maxi skirt. To accessorise, I completed the look with a statement pearl ring to add a modern element, and of course my favourite new Topshop heels. I also decided to do a half up half down hairstyle which is something I don't often do, but I found this faux Chanel hair clip in my jewelry box and thought it could be the perfect finishing touch. 

Do any of you still like to dress up once in a while? I would love to hear about any lost and forgotten items you rediscovered!

Clothes - All from my mum's wardrobe
