How to: RETRO!!

Have you ever wondered if you belong to this era? Or are you old school? Or just too ahead of this time?

Well, I am always confused for my belonging. Definitely not too much into the future but never sure if I like the flared pants and big sunglasses of the 70’s more, the Victorian era with ruffles and layers or the rad 90’s with chokers and mini skirts! I am always divided. More often than not, I wake up with the mood. The mood on how and what era-wise I want to dress myself up that particular day. The struggle is real my friend.

If you have been following the blog, you know what I am talking about. I cannot fit in a mould. I would hate to do that. Well, you know what mood I am in today? Something people refer to as “RETRO”! With pop colours, loud lipsticks, hair-styles like pin-up girls and everything over the top.

For the look, I revamped my age old red peplum dress. As you can see, I cut it off. The peplum. Then I proceeded with putting some SASS over it. See what I did there? Never mind. I styled the dress with a skinny scarf as a belt, and some oh-so-cool accessories from The Red Box.

Let me talk about them for a second. Yes they deserve it. You know my love for ‘different’ things. Not that ‘different’ can be perceived in a n number of ways. Anyway, The Red Box is a hub for all your accessory needs. Things you will not see anywhere. Their bags and phone covers are my absolute favourite. You need to check them out. I will put a link in the end. For not, you take a look at the pictures and these amazing products by The Red Box.

Now who says you can’t carry a supposed makeup pouch as a bag? You definitely can. The OMG necklace is so dope. I’ll stop blabbering about these accessories now. They speak for themselves. Oh and how can I forget my attempt at a pin-up hairstyle (not so much!) with this bandana I got for 10Rs.
