An Update on Your Mother's Floral Dress from the 90's
Given the dress' length, I wore it with heels. For reference, I'm 5'6" and a couple of parts of the dress touched the ground when standing flat footed. I chose some block heeled gladiator sandals- they kept my feet cool and the thick heel made it a lot easier to traverse the wood chips of a playground.
And perhaps my favorite thing about this dress are the two tassels at the front. Because I'm all about those tassels (along with most of the population- or at least the fashion conscious portion.)
I paired this look with gold eye shadow and a matte pink lip. Gold eye makeup is flattering on all eye colors and is neutral enough to accompany a bright colored outfit. I used Urban Decay's Naked Palette, applying Half Baked on my main lid, Smog in my crease and the outer half of my lid, and Darkhorse to my outer corner. I also mixed Smog and Darkhorse along my lower lash line.
On my lips I used NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul. I love NYX's matte lip creams. You apply them as a liquid with the sponge brush applicator which allows you to be more precise than with normal stick lipsticks. Then it dries matte! And I haven't found them to be too drying either.
