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.

Back to USSR or Russian movie star in swimming suit

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.

Ear Cuffs Are The Partygoers Best Friends

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).

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.

How jacket with bow can increase sale

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.

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.
