Today's Style Post is all about the color that I think truly epitomizes vintage elegance: dusty rose. This look also features two of my other loves: cameo necklaces and half up, half down hairstyles.
Note the nasty looking brown splotches on my left arm. That's where my PICC line used to be before I accidentally yanked it out. Now it's on my right arm, and I'm hoping I don't have an allergic reaction to the adhesive bandage there too. Anyway, that's why I'm carrying a book - to hide the ugly white sleeve that's covering the bandage.
The only complaint I have about this dress is that it does wrinkle quite easily. But I love the color and the empire waist so much that I don't really mind too much.
Hmm...So I wonder what I should classify this look as. Maybe Victorian meets Neoclassic?
I'm wearing soft makeup to match the muted pink of my dress. I've been thinking of starting some makeup tutorial posts, even though I wouldn't say I'm an expert on makeup.
I know I've said before that I don't like wearing blush because it makes me look sunburned, but I've changed my mind. Now I love how it makes my face glow even when I'm not wearing a lot of other makeup.
Here is a closeup of my cameo necklace. Love, love, love! Forever 21 seriously has the best jewelry. You can buy this lovely piece here.
This is the most comfortable pair of heels I own. I love how they're not too high and how the nude color goes with everything. These even come with regular shoelaces so I can change the look of the shoes. Personally, I prefer the ribbon laces.
Wow. This was quite a picture heavy post. I hope I don't come across as vain, but I loved how these photos turned out. That window in my parents' living room is the best place to take pictures. :)

P.S. Just in case anyone is wondering, the book I'm carrying is Henry James' Daisy Miller and Washington Square.
