Almost half my wardrobe goes back in time. Every girl goes through that phase of a fashion staple every now and then. For me, its the 60's. The 60's! who can say no right? 
Big eyes (Twiggy), class (audrey Hepburn),  beehive hair, retro fashion, the shift dress, the pleat dress ... Fashion was in fashion, stayed in fashion and is often back in fashion. So this look was inspired by this era. For me, it turns out to be just perfect for a wedding, birthday lunch, graduation party and the like.

Colour block it- Pair pink dress with green accessories (Shoes, bag, belt).

Old school: 
Play it safe- Pair pink dress with cream/ white accessories for the perfect throwback.
