The winter months are a great time to wear white.  The key to wearing white on white is to accessorize. Try a printed scarf in bold colors to perk things up.  My Hermes scarf is my new favorite accessory-- the colors are vibrant and print is beautiful making me want to wear it with everything.  Scarves are an essential piece to have in your wardrobe and can be worn a million ways.  My personal favorite is to adorn my hair with one elevating a simple outfit.  Light is limited during the cold winter months.  What better time than to brighten things up and in style?

Katie and I decided to shoot in one of our favorite antique stores in downtown LA called Olde Good Things.  I could spend hours and my life savings in stores like this.  I almost walked away with the elephant!

Retro Thursday

Dress: Stella & Jamie, Scarf: Topshop, Shoes: Steve Madden, Clutch: Gucci, Sunglasses: Street Market

For this look, we decided to shoot at the County of Los Angeles Public Library (yes, libraries still exist)!  I've always been inspired by retro fashion.  If I could pick any era to live in it would be the 50s-60s.  The fashion went from feminine & elegant to hippie & daring.  Who wouldn't want to live in an era where you could dress like Jackie O, Dorothy Dandridge, Brigitte Bardot?  If I could, I'd happily walk around all day in a beehive hairdo, little black dress, and gloves.  But, since I'm an old-fashioned gal living in a modern world--I mix the old with the new.  The shape and hemline of this dress is reminiscent of the 50s yet the cut-out detail makes it very modern.  I kept the look simple with no jewelry and instead chose a patterned scarf and circle sunglasses.
