Being a kid of the 70’s Safari stuff was all the rage, for men and women. I have mentioned in the past that my Mum had a few of the jumpsuits, and most of the men I knew and even some boys my age had little safari suits or the safari shirts. The look is timeless, it comes around every once in a while, and each take on the look gets more inviting, and this dress by Vinyl is inviting in a whole range of ways.
Firstly the belt is texture change and even the belt style is right on the money. Those belts were so good at staying fixed that you often had to wrestle with them to get them to let you free again. The buttons, the creases and the pockets all fantastic, even the unbuttoned look works great. Personally, as I have said in the past on numerous occasions the shading nipple look is not my personal taste, because they often are not strong enough to give that much detail to the kind of fabric used, but also it makes me personally self-conscious to be high beaming all over the place. However this dress is not overly shaded, it is a little more – you are not wearing a bra – than anything, so it works. I do wish stores would give us the option of yes or no, but again that is me.
I also got to wear this great hairstyle I grabbed at Shiny Shabby the other day that comes down enough at the front so that again it subdues the look. With the military safari combination look, these boots came out great, with the ability to change the slip cover portion to the similar colour as the dress, and the heels part similar to the belt. They are going to protect my ankles from any nasty critter bites I may need to avoid in the jungle.
The jeep is a full perms by Meli Imako, I threw the texture in PS to make the colour work, it was neon green to start with, it is often fun for props and the like for pictures to just grab some full perms and make it how you need it.
