Gina Lolobriga is smoking hot in white gowns and big jewellery in Solomon and Sheba (1959).

If you want to channel your inner Queen and don’t count your money, put on Monique Lhulillier‘ Cowl Neack Sheath Gown and decorate yourself with Azza FahmyThe Bow Earring and Drop Shaped Necklace.

You can feel yourself like a sultry movie star without spending a fortune.

Go for GennySleevles Blue Lame Pencil Dress and Ben-AmunCasablanca Coin Statement Earrings and Classic Gold Spiral Bangle.

P.S. Gina’s draped sleeping gown is something!

Modern designers have to take a lesson “how to make a naked dress” from Ralph Jester, who created costumes for miss Lollobrigida.

Looking for a timeless feminine accessory? Go for a small bucket bag!

I think bucket bag makes Cleo Moore’ look in The Other Woman (1954) even more elegant.

That old bag can be easily replaced with modern Repetto‘s grey Reverence Bag Small Size (removeable and reversible handles, detachable strap allow you to play with your looks).

DeMellier‘ pink The Gotherburg and Gianni Chiarini‘ red Jackie bucket bags will be a stylish partners for Trashy Diva‘ vintage-inspired Courtney Coat Dress.

Looking Attractive In Office Grey Suit. Mission: Possible

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 AquascutumBlyth Fitted Jacket and TopshopPussybow 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 TopshopPussybow Blouse (or any similar jackets and blouses) with darker shade skirts, like MangoPencil Skirt and Reiss‘ midi-skirt Albert. If you prefer more modern look, go for Topshop High Waisted Cigarette Trousers.

Knot of Pearls

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 Toired 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.

Make Your Simple Dress Great (again)

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.

Stylish Fusion: Wild West leather + good old tweed + feminine shoes

They say Wild West accessories look best with denim, but I think American West‘s Grand Prairie Multi-Compartmet Crossbody Flap Bag and leather Ladies’ Wide Cuff Bracelet will look cute too with Paule Ka‘s classic ¾ sleeve Dress In Tweed Gaze and Pumps In Smooth Perforated Leather.

Cute geometric skirt is going for a walk

Veronica Beard‘s Ana Skirt is a perfect choice for those who has beautiful legs. Add to this mini-skirt Veronica Beard‘s striped Simpson Tee, Danse Lente‘s Lilou Bianco bag, G.H.Bass‘ burgundy Wynn Velvet Mule Weejuns – and you’ll get pretty casual outfit.
