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.
