Keen As Mustard

20160530-IMG_2967.jpg

Just over a year ago, I was wandering around the Haight and Ashbury area of San Francisco. While I was there, I was able to visit Tatyana Boutique (it was magical). There were so many pieces I could have taken home but I ended up with four purchases, one of which was the Four Anchors Mustard Bowling dress.

There are several reasons why I love this dress. Firstly, it doesn’t feel too dressy; often pin-up style clothing can seem a little over the top but I could happily wear this at school. Detailing in this dress is wonderful: there are pleats on the sleeves, sleeve tie-backs, an anchor on the back, front pockets, skirt pockets and a sturdy belt. The colour is great for all seasons and can be paired up with different colours and accessories.

As the weather was pretty grim, I wore my trust brown boots with burgundy tights. To keep the chill off, I added a cropped leather jacket.

For hair, I rolled my fringe into bumper bangs and kept tight curls at the back of my head. I kept make-up minimal by powdering my face and adding a slick of dark rust liquid lipstick.

Sadly, this dress is currently out of stock but you can find it on eBay and some swap/sell groups. If Tatyana bring out any more dresses in the style, I will definitely be making more purchases. Do you own any Tatyana  pieces? What other styles would you recommend?
