Bring It Back

Here's my simple Saturday blog post with a simple weekend look. I love incorporating pin-up styles for a day look. You can look classic and vintage with just the use of red lipstick, curled hair, and bright colors.  

Featured is a Forever 21 top, H&M pants, vintage Givenchy necklace, plus a gold flower necklace made by me.

Love In The Afternoon

It seems like only yesterday was just the beginning of Summer. The arrival of Fall is arriving as a disappointment for most people who go back to school and who enjoy the warm weather. Although I am starting college soon, I welcome Fall with open arms. I look forward to starting fashion design school, wearing scarves and gloves, and darker colors (which thankfully is 95% of my wardrobe). This is a back to school inspired look to bring back some 1950's-styled class to this world.

Featured in this look is actually one of the first tops I ever made. I love polka dots and the vintage high cut neckline. The cardigan with the silver chain lining is from White House Black Market, a store that understands class and how to incorporate it with mostly just black and white color schemes. The pastel pink skirt is vintage along with the white leather gloves. I got really lucky finding these heels at an antique store. They are vintage Escada that I snagged for 10 dollars.

"Gloves may appear to be an “innocent” article of dress, but they actually have one of the most thought-provoking histories of all garments. In the past, like present day, gloves were worn to protect the hands and as a fashion accessory, but what makes them so special is that they have a long history of being associated with numerous customs, practices, rituals and symbolisms." -HISTORY OF GLOVES AND THEIR SIGNIFICANCE

This is an excerpt from a very interesting article on the history of gloves. I believe that we should bring back gloves not only as a helpful piece to keep our hands warm, but as what their other original purposes were. They should once again be a staple in women's wardrobe.

I hope this look inspires someone out there! I have been watching too many old movies lately, so my title was inspired by the film Love In The Afternoon with Audrey Hepburn. It is definitely a must see and will put a smile on your face.

Nothing But A Dress

I may not have short hair or long legs, but I do love recreating photos of my favorite inspirations. This shoot is dedicated to the biggest inspiration in my life for fashion and acting, Marilyn Monroe. While going through old boxes the other day, my mom stumbled upon this 50's lace beauty that we didn't even know we had or why. So the obvious thing to do with it is a full blown photoshoot, right? That is just what we did, thanks to my inspiration behind it, Miss Monroe.

Finally (if you made it this far) here are the shots that motivated me to do this post:

Sadly these were all I could find. If only I knew where to see the rest of her shoot. If someone could give me a link that would be awesome.
