Look at me I'm Sandra dee: Bowling Outfit

Hello Lovelies!

Tonight I thought I'd show you a rather fun outfit that I wore bowling last week. If you're a fellow fashion and beauty lover then you'll know every occasion is an excuse to dress up, so when me and my friends decided to go on a bowling social I thought I'd take the opportunity to rock a retro 'just stepped out of Grease' look.
Bowling shoes, arcades and slush puppies just make me feel as though I'm back in the 50's!

Disco pants- American Apparel 
Crop top- Topshop
Varisty jacket- Uni shop
Ankle socks- Topshop
Sexy bowling shoes- Bowling alley
Sneakers- Converse
Lips- Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in 'Lovesick'
Nails- Max Factor Nailfinity in 'Disco Pink'

There was one item of clothing I absolutely had to wear bowling and that was my American Apparel disco pants as they make me feel as though I'm Sandy from the last scene of Grease (Whenever I wear them I can barely stop myself from singing 'You are the one I want, oo oo oooo'... my housemates are too lucky to live with me sometimes). I love pairing these with crop tops as the high waist creates such a figure flattering silhouette, but anyway now onto the very exciting new item of clothing you may have spotted, my American varsity jacket! Me and all my uni friends have these to promote our production of FAME on next week and I've literally lived in it since I got it as sports luxe is so in right now and it's so fun to dress up with things like dungarees and wedged trainers. Plus, Sheffield Uni just won Varsity so I look very supportive of that fact right now (Who knew I was so interested in sport!?). You can see I paired these clothes with frilly ankle socks and some incredibly sexy size three bowling shoes, but for when I wasn't busy scoring strikes/ knocking over a couple of pins, I wore the converse I've had since I was about 14 which you can see from the delightful photo of me on the bike below. As a beauty blogger I can't help but match my outfits with hair and make up so I finished the look with a very Sandy hair style complete with white ribbon, winged liner and bright pink nails and lips. My gorgeous housemate Rosie also rocked the retro look with her Levi shorts and pop of coral, she'll be doing a full outfit post on this soon so be sure to check that out along with all her other lovely posts here!
And finally here are some arcade photos which really prove just how cool I am...

These photos are really making me want to go on a silly night out as I've been so busy with deadlines and society stuff this week, it's the uni performance festival this weekend though so that should be really fun. The girl group I'm in even has it's own little show so I'll keep you updated with how that goes :)

I hope you've all had a lovely week!
Love Meg

This whole post is great, except for the fact that Uni of won varsity, being a Hallam graduate that's something I never want to hear haha. Although I only ever cared about sport to use it as an excuse for a night out really. Those jackets are so nice though :)

  20. Bowling ball - Your bowling ball is a very important piece of bowling equipment. When starting out, article just released most people simply use a house bowling ball, provided by the bowling alley. These house balls are generally made of polyester.
