Want to add some old good Hollywood glamour to your look? Go for glittering chandelier earrings like red hot movie star Jayne in Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957).
Jayne’s character dazzels in tassel earrings on massage table, doesn’t she?
So take tips from Ms. Mansfield and wear tassels with bath towel to seduce your special one or with cocktail dress to charm everyone around you.
Here are some options to check.
Next‘ Silver Tone Sparkle Drop Earrings, Ben-Amun‘ gold plated Seville Nights Geo Stone Tassel Earrings оand Kate Spade‘ black Full Flowerish Statement Tassel Earrings are definitely cute.
Seductive vixen doesn’t take her big earring when she’s taking a bath.
Ben-Amun‘ yellow Helen of Troy Large Gold Stetement Earrings, Butler and Wilson‘ Baguette Stones Crystal Drop Earrings and Brighton silver Tamal Post Drop Earrings will look cute not only with foaming bath but with a cocktail dress.
Pearl earrings almost blended in Jayne’s platinum hair.
Personally I think earrings with dark pearls like In2design‘ Baroque Earrings – Gold/Peacock is a better choice for girls with long blond hair. And In2design‘ Baroque Earrings – Silver/White Baroque is a perfect option for brunettes and blondies with short hair.
Many girls complain that strict office dress code doesn’t allow them to show their feminine side. Well, this task is challenging but not impossible.
Italian beauty Claudia Cardinale in La scoumoune (1972) shows us how look classy and attractive in a grey suit.
Blouse with bow adds softeness to formal outfit.
You can creat a modern version of Claudia’ outfit with Aquascutum‘ Blyth Fitted Jacket and Topshop‘ Pussybow Blouse. Aquascutum teamed jacket with Lily Pencil Skirt (speaking frankly, I don’t like much button fastening, it looks better on casual stuff).
You can wear Blyth Fitted Jacket and Topshop‘ Pussybow Blouse (or any similar jackets and blouses) with darker shade skirts, like Mango‘ Pencil Skirt and Reiss‘ midi-skirt Albert. If you prefer more modern look, go for Topshop‘ High Waisted Cigarette Trousers.
Old cinema is endless source of inspiration for modern fashionistas, who don’t want to be trend victims but masters of their own style.
Look at Catherine Deneuve’ character outfit: it looks relaxed, effortlessly chic and timeless. Guess, what is the title of this movie? The Woman In The Red Boots / La femme aux bottes rouges (1974)!
Bright long boots help to remind people that you’re woman during the season of coats, sweaters and jeans.
Here is my version of red boots outfit.
High-Heel Leather Boot + Melton Wool Pea Coat + Slim Rinced Raw Jeans + Cashmere Roll-Neck + Alpaca & Leather Gloves + Leather Tote Bag. All by Swedish brand Arket.
Get bored with your pearl strand? Time to tied the knot!
Here is Googie Withers in Night and the City (1950) for an inspiration.
Googie Withers’ character wears black & white pearl necklace, but you can add more colours to your outfit with Pearls of Joy‘ (left), Mastoloni‘ Viva Tahitian Pearl Strand Necklace and Honora‘ (right) strands.
By the way, pearl necklaces are multipurpose:
Honora’ lilac strand with or without knot will look cute with Morgan De Toi‘ red evening Asymetrical Belted Bustier and every day Plain Straight-Cut Jumper with Boat Neck. Reiss‘ grey Albert Skirt and Chie Mihara‘ vintage inspired Julian shoes will be stylish partners for bustier and jumper.
Many people think that sex appeal was strictly forbidden in Soviet cinema. Well, it’s only half of the truth: sensual scences were there, but they were served as delicious desserts in very small portions.
And sexy actresses and actors were never called «sexy» but «attractive».
Soviet movie star Irina Skobtseva looks very seductive in swimming suit in good old movie Ordinary Man (1956).
No doubt, dark bandeau one-piece swimming suit is the perfect choice for girls who want to highlight their feminity (and for those who want to hide few extra inches of the belly).
Here are some modern variations for an inspiration.
Pain de Sucre‘ black with abstract printing Andie, Zimmermann‘ black with white flowers Juniper Applique 1PC and Agua Bendita‘ red Sandy Aura One Piece 4423.
Modern society is full of contradictions: those so called “most progressive minds of our time” are crusading
to wipe all smokers off from surface of Mother Earth against smoking and at time glamourizing severe obesity.
Sorry, you can tell me whatever, but the weight of Tess Holliday is not healthy
Health campaigners would
chop me in pieces explain me that I’m wrong but I think old movie stars with cigarettes look very seductive and charming.
Michele Morgan in La minute de verite (1952)
Lizabeth Scott in Dead Reckoning (1947)
Jane Greer in Out of the Past (1947)
Cleo Moore in On Dangerous Ground (1951)
Catherine Deneuve and Jean-Paul Belmondo in La sirene du Missisipi (1969)
By the way, Original Sin (2001) with Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas is remake of La sirene du Missisipi. French version is philosophical and bit boring (sorry, monsieur Truffaut) and Original Sin is all about action and passion.
Girls and Cigarettes. Part I is here.
Girls and Cigarettes. Part II. Cigarette Holders is there.
Big Earrings (high jewellery or bijou, it doesn’t matter) is a perfect choice for party queens – they immediately draw attention to your face and add chic and charm to your outfit.
But don’t tryst my words blindly, have a look at beautiful Jeanne Crain in Dangerous Crossing (1953).
If you are
bloody rich check Messika‘ Diamond Whirl (left) and Calypso pieces.
Handmade Marty Magic‘ ear cuffs look quite and quirky and don’t cost a fortune.
I like Spider Ear Wrap with Garnet – Silver, Octopus Ear Cuff – Bronze, Comet Ear Wrap – Silver and Throne Dragon Ear Wrap – Bronze.
Indian women are wearing ear cuffs for centuries, so Indian jewellers definitely had enough time to perfect their skills in making big earrings.
Suhani Pittie – the favorite brand of Bollywood stars – offers a good selection of ear pieces.
Avant Garde Golden Leaves Earcuffs (left) and Rose Gold Swirl Ear Cuffs look posh and exotic.
In The Big Clock (1948) legendary costume designer Edith Head dressed actress Maureen O’Sallivan (miss O’Sallivan is the mother of Mia Farrow, by the way) in jacket decorated with ends of a bow and striped top.
Together these 2 pieces make a bow complete.
Definitely modern designers can use this trick (not only with bow but with pin, for example) to increase the sales of their brands, but they don’t watch old good movies.
Think your dark little dress looks boring?
Use tip from Judith Anderson’ character from a classic noir movie Laura (1944) and decorate it with not 1 but 3 brooches.
By the way, you can find a lot of beautiful vintage pieces on Susan Caplan website.
I think 2 silver plated 1960s Vintage Trifari Brushed Leaf Brooches, gold plated 1960s Vintage Monet Swirl Brooch and Mango‘s Belt Cotton Dress will look very stylish together.
I bet majority of uber-trendy girls would describe Camilla’s Sole Bliss‘ Ingrid shoes as dangerously boring, but t
hey will grow older too you know, this pair is perfect choice for those who don’t want to draw attention to their legs. And for sure this neutral camel colour will comliment very bright clothing.
Vice versa bright coral version of Ingrid shoes together with Sole Bliss‘ Jemima Bag will add some stylish fuel to Aalto‘s beige Wrap Tailored Jacket and Marks&Spencer‘s cream Linen Blend Straight Leg Trouser.
