Formal Night: Channeling Audrey

posted on: 10.09.2012

Dress: Vintage (similar), Necklace: Urban Outfitters old (similar here), Shoes: Charles David (I like these), Clutch: Forever 21
 
Once I made the decision to wear my grandmother's dress from the 60's for formal night, I immediately thought of one of my dearest friend's favorite sayings, "If your going to get wet, might as well go swimming."-(a fitting mentality for cruise life)- Ultimately meaning, I took the retro look to the next level. I put on my Mac red lipstick, rolled my ponytail into a sock bun, found the gaudiest necklace I owned....and voila, a blonde Audrey Hepburn from San Diego. Ok maybe not, but I am currently working on an alter ego to match her timeless glamour and hide my contemporary plainness, I'll let you know when she's finished.
