This weeks outfit was inspired by Vanessa Hudgens (See picture below) back when she visited Nick Grimshaw to be on the BBCR 1 Breakfast show on July 16th. She wore white Houghton cigarette pants with a white Catherine Malandrino croptop, and nude heeled sandals paired with a bun on the top of her head. Splendid! Suffice it to say, she looked amazing.
I, on the other hand, wasn’t going to be on a radioshow anytime soon. So I had to go and make it a little bit more everyday appropriate. I changed the Houghton cigarette pants for comfortable Topshop Tapered Trousers, ditched the croptop and wore a black basic tank instead but added a white Zara blazer (out of stock) paired with my new favourite Topshop Gesture Heels to keep people from hitting the ‘SNOOZE’ button.
But the hair. Oh my dear people, the hair. I can’t stress the words ”Teasing” and ”Hairspray” too much. Flip your hair up-side-down, tease the crown of your head, spray 10 to 20 bottles of hairspray in it, flip it back and tie it in a messy bun. Use your fingers to pry out some strands, and voilà! Now you smell like hairspray. For make-up I like to keep things simple during the day. Defining the brow a bit (adding a bit of an arch if you’d like), Naked (Urban Decay) eyeshadow sweeped across my lids, bit of eyeliner and mascara, Hoola (Benefit) bronzing powder and you’re done!
”Can I compete with Vanessa Hudgens now?” Not exactly. But you’ll look good while trying.
