So last weekend was two of my good friends 30th birthdays.
The theme was ‘Hollywood Glamour’ so instantly I was thinking ‘I can really go over the top!’
I absolutely loved the recent pictures of the Pinupgirlclothing.com‘s Spanish inspired autumn/winter collection so I decided to try and put my own look together.
I bought a gorgeous lace dress from eBay for the princely sum of £28, I have tried to show it off to its best here in the pics and in the photo gallery below.
Obviously because it’s see-through I needed to wear something underneath, I went for a black satin body with bra cups from New Look, they haven’t got the exact one I have but they do have this which is very similar and the same price I paid (£12.99)
For underneath the skirt I went for a couple of petticoats, I decided on two as I wanted the skirt to have ridiculous big volume. I chose a red one and black one to match my chosen theme of Spanish Flamenco. I was worried these would make me far too hot but they were absolutely fine. I bought mine on eBay from this seller.
I bought the 26″, size xs-m in the red and the black as they were so reasonable and you can see they really work together.
For my hair I picked up a gorgeous flower on eBay for only £6.99, you can buy the same one I bought from here. It’s massive and is so much better value than the ones you can buy off the high street.
So there you have it, my entire outfit cost under £70 – not bad for a black tie event!
What do you think of my outfit? Have you ever done a DIY outfit for black tie or another event? Please let me know!
