Did you get to see when I participated in a mystery challenge in August? It was a lot of fun, and I got the theme of Disco. I love the mystery theme because it challenges you and forces you out of your comfort zone.
My theme was chosen by Sara at Made by Sara. If you are not familiar, check out what beautiful work she has created. I am also jealous of her being in a beautiful setting.
Well, the most exciting thing for me was my theme: Rockabiily! In case you haven’t caught on yet, I kind of have a thing for mid century culture. Not over-enthusiatic because I love the modern too, but enough to give my style a sense of classic.
I didn’t want to do the classic dress, and with it being February, I really loved the idea of a playsuit or cropped outfit. So my inspiration went to one of my favorite styles: high waisted pants and a halter top. I also wanted to stray from the stereotypical red, cherries and polka dots. That is a bit harder to do. BUT I succeeded and used a bird print bandanna I had, along with some black and white polka dot scraps, and I upcycled a pair of boys slacks to be high waisted pants.
