I am going to a party tonight with a 50s theme Shall i do the tight jeans gingham shirt and quiff or flowery dress and cardy? As usual am last minute but have lots of clothes so don't need to buy.And make up red lipstick and what else?TIA

Oh, quiff quiff quiff! I love a quiff. EVRYONE will be doing the full skirted thing. You go rockabilly. Liquid eyeliner, maybe a cheeky beauty spot?

Or channel your inner Rizzo and go pencil skirt

Thats what I think.Have a black catsuit which sounds horrendous but is like skinny jeans with slaeeveless zip top and winkle picker heels.High pony tail and quiff def beauty spot.Or gingham short sleeved shirt and normal skinny jeans with turn ups
