That's A Wrap!

If I could name for you some of my top favorite and most inspirational designers, one of them would most definitely be Diane von Furstenberg. She is a great role model for all women out there creating a career based off her passion and making her own path as a very powerful woman. To revolutionize the fashion world by inventing something simple, classy, and that the everyday woman can wear, the wrap dress has become a classic staple thanks to DvF.

For this dress, I wanted to feature pops of leather tones to balance out the mod print of the dress. The bag and earrings are Louis Vuitton, and the heels are Aldo.

Cat eye glasses are a must have for vintage lovers and can complete the whole look.

Embellished In Coral

I have a strong passion for feeling glamorous. I'm not a materialistic person, though I love to feel my very best. My favorite way of feeling glamorous is to experiment with different eras. Like my last post, I am very inspired by the roaring 20's.

This dress from Quiz Clothing is one of the most beautiful dresses I have seen. It's so intricately detailed with it's sequined embellishments and it's scalloped hem. The coral color is perfect for the summer. If you are headed to a Gatsby themed party this would be absolutely perfect for you! The link to this beauty is:

The secret to finding the perfect jeweled up headpiece is to just simply use a necklace. This pearl headband (really a necklace) is from Charming Charlie, jewelry heaven for fashion lovers.

These shoes were actually given to me by my great grandmother. I am honored to be in possession of almost half of her wardrobe from the 20's of when she used to dance. These shoes were custom made for her in Italy and they are practically in mint condition. She inspires me everyday, especially when it comes to this style.

"I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn't any privacy.”

At last, I finally accomplished my Gatsby inspired post. My gloves and bag are antique along with the pearl headpiece. My dress that looks vintage itself is from H&M. My love for Old Hollywood grows everyday as I find more pieces to work with. I am so inspired by silent films and reading old issues of vogue on I really recommend signing up for it. You will find issues from every era back to 1892. You can be just as inspired as I am while looking at original pieces and extravagant clothing that used to be worn.

My earrings and roman numeral ring are from Tiffany & Co. and the rest of the jewelry is vintage, besides the James Avery charm bracelet.

My look was inspired by Carey Mulligan and her stunning 20's looks from The Great Gatsby, one of my favorite films that depicts one of the best times in history.

Here are some edits I did to match the era:
