Going to a party for a sixtieth birthday and apparently it's 1950's and coronation themed. So I need an outfit...But it needs to be cheap...and I need to be able to breastfeed!? I'm lacking in inspiration...help?!
What sort of price range are you after?
This with a cardi, little hat and gloves...Or This with pearls, gloves etc....Or thisOr this
Hows about this over this with this and black peeptoes or ballet flats. The dress is shorter than t should be but it'd do.Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in shade #1 is a good 50s red that suits most skin tones.
Some great ideas here Thankyou. I am def getting that underskirt and actually thinking it will go under a dress I already have. I'm thinking grease-esque? Is that right? A big swishy ponytail with a ribbon in too maybe? Great tip on the cheap lippy too. Thankyou
yy, you could go for a grease-esque look (or preppy or glam or housewifey or whatever) 50's look. Depends on the dress TBH, what's it like?
If you want a lace covered full skirted type dress, look at Primark. They have some in at the moment, can't remember the price but it's less than £20. Ideal if you don't see yourself wearing it again.
