Strawberry Tea and Happy Eid

My friend taught me how to do rolled hair to a half decent standard so I’ve been having a play around with a vintage/retro look lately. It’s been really fun walking around pretending to be some kind of siren of the silver screen, or in this case an adorable secretary.
Cardigan: Marks and Spencer

Dress: The Frilly Ninja

Brooch: Handmade

Shoes: Vivienne Westwood

The same friend also knitted me this adorable strawberry brooch for my birthday! It’s painfully cute and I wore it to go to a charity strawberry tea hosted by Sefton Women and Children’s Aid. I can’t resist dressing to a theme so when I heard the words “strawberry tea” I immediately whipped out the gingham. This dress is actually a lolita dress, but I’ve styled it so it looks more 50’s so I wouldn’t call this a lolita outfit really.
It was also Eid on Friday so I went out for dinner with my parents to Kasbah in Liverpool. I am not a practising muslim, but its important to my family so we always go out for Eid. Apparently every muslim in Liverpool was there because there was a huge queue outside the restaurant but we’d committed to the idea so we waited. I had tagine de Marrakesh and it was delicious!¬†
Just a short post today, hope you all had a lovely weekend.
