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.  

Below are some photographs of iconic muses that always did it right.
