Elvis Presley – It’s now or never (1960)
I had no idea what to wear for Valentine’s Day. I was a little disappointed because I thought I won’t find anything easy since I haven’t made any specific plans. As usual I’ve opened the fully stuffed closet with clothes and I began to slide the hangers, when I stumbled upon this hearts shirt. What a surprise! So cute and perfect for Valentine’s! Although I have it from last year, I didn’t get the chance to wear it for any of my shootings. Then I began to work around it, my entire outfit. My new velvet, burgundy blazer, that I’ve just purchased from Stradivarius worked like a charm. I really love velvet, I think it looks so classy and royal of course.
Since the shirt was already the item that would catch the attention I couldn’t add, or at least it’s usually not advisable to have multiple items of focus. I still found this look a little too simple for an event, so I searched through my collection of jewellery and there it was this amazing ruby stone necklace from Jade Collection. Since it was from the same colour palette as the shirt, I’d say it wasn’t too much. It was that something to make the outfit standout, looking more elegant and less average, something that would work for a night out as well.
For the eye makeup I’ve choosen brown tones, since I think it works so good with burgundy cloths. I’ve also added a little touch of cooper, with the chopper shade(which is actually a cooper shade) from the Naked2 palette from Urban Decay, which is a very good basic palette for every day use, by the way. The lips were simply matte, nude lipstick because I wanted the eyes to stand out more.
For the hair I used this type of style with 2 braides, that I’ve made for one of my previous posts. But this time I’ve made a a single Dutch braid secured in a ponytail. I’ve also teased it to make it look messier.
