Day 13 - Like in a Hitchcock movie!

Last night I went to eat at a fine restaurant with a friend. The restaurant was very classy and the cuisine was superb. I opted for a 50’s elegant ladylike outfit. It made me feel as if I was in a Hitchcock movie. Don’t get me wrong, there was no mystery or crime involved, LOL! It’s just that I think certain places call for certain looks and that restaurant was the perfect place to wear a 50’s style dress.
My make up was done accordingly to the outfit. Winged black eyeliner and red lips. I love the make up of that period! It looks so elegant without being outdated.




Dress: H&M
Shoes: Zara
Belt: it was a gift
I forgot to take pics of my bag again, which was a black satin clutch bag by Avon (yes, the cosmetics company!). I’ll show it to you in some other outfit...




Face: Avon perfectwear foundation, Mac select cover concealer, ELF HD powder
Eyes: NYX white e/s, light brown e/s from the 26 Coastal Scents palette, Mac blacktrack fluidline, Mac zoom lash and Benefit badgal mascaras
Cheeks: Mac blush in Peaches
Lips: La Roche-Posay lipliner in 06, NYX lipstick in Chaos
(note: The lipstick is not as orangey-red as it appears in the pictures. It's darker and more wine-red.)

Which is your favorite cuisine? Do you like eating in fine classy restaurants or do you prefer the more low key taverns and dinners?

  2. ah this look, I think it's the best from all you've posted so far! You look so 60's but then again so now.Food is my other love, I love all cuisines. When it comes to low key tavernes you go as you are,and that's the beauty, you don't have to be "properly" dressed, you just enjoy the food and your company. When it comes to a classy restaurant, it’s nice that you have to “prepare” yourself (dress, make up, accessories)

  3. @ Tali: Thank you very much hon! I got the green eyes from my grandfather, who was a very handsome man. It's nice to have good genes in your family, isn't it?! ;)

    @ Pink_Fish: Thank you, I think it's my favorite look so far too! And I agree with you about restaurants and taverns. I love going to a nice traditional greek tavern right after the beach, with flip flops and beach wear. But I also love to dress up for a nice, classy restaurant! xxx
