You are young, able to dance and drink whole night long and New Year’s eve is around the corner? Dress yourself as a Disco Queen and go wild! Because in the blink of an eye you’ll notice that you prefer pyjamas, bed and silence to sexy clothes, dance floor and loud music.
I guess Lena Hoschek‘s 3 quater sleeve Hepburn Jacket Rose, Uterque‘s Silver Laminated Jeans, Jeffrey Campbell‘s Tynes pumps and Butler & Wilson‘s Crystal Flowers & Leaves Bracelet With Attached Ring and Swarowski Crystal Multi Animal Clutch Bag will look great on a party beast.
If you’re in the mood to add some flame to your ordinary day, go for a red coat and bright accessories.
Here are Lena Hoschek‘s Basic Instinct Coat Heat, Roger Vivier‘s Trompette Ankle Boot in Leather and Anya Hindmarch‘s Giant Pixels Small Bathurst Satchel.
Fashion snobs often say that they will never wear bags made from polyurethane (PU) even under threat of death. But style is not about status and prestige, it’s about “this thing suits me, it’s really mine and I will wear it with aplomb”.
Any of these 3 made from PU and cork Pixie Mood‘s bags – (from top to bottom) Claudia Crossbody Bag – Cream, Ophelia Crossbody – Ruby Red and Bernice Drawstring Bag – Nude – will look pretty with Adriano Goldschmied‘s The Cara Short Coat, The Satin Prima cigarette jeans and Trippen‘s Knight f boots.
If you are in mood for something casual but feminine go for Spanish staff. UNOde50‘s handmade jewellery – Nacaroni earrings and My Seal bracelet – and Uterque‘s clothes, shoes and accessories – asymmetric Geometric Sweater With Shimmer, elegant and sexy Camel Pencil Skirt, Suede High Heel Court Shoes and Mini Tote Bag.
You can create many cute outfits mixing handcrafted Justin Boots, Lee‘s jeans and Alanui‘s cashmere cardigans.
Midas yellow /Angel blue with horse riding Indians will look stylish with blue Easy Fit Frenchie Bootcut jeans and Gemma Brown booties;
Lapponia white cardigan – with beige Relaxed Plain Front Pants and Faxon Blue;
Beluga blue with stripes – with black Slimming Fit Jade Legging and Elina Redstone boots.
In my opinion, today we are lack of true style icons.
There are grotesque but sexy silicone doll Kim Kardashian and pretty but very boring good girl Olivia Palermo and thousands mediocre more or less famous no-personality stars and self-proclamed trendsetters in between.
Actress and dancer Louise Brooks – the shining star of Roaring Twenties – got it all: beauty, sex appeal and wit. She was the one who made bobbed haircut popular.
Watch miss Brooks in silent German movie Die Buchse der Pandora 1929. Believe me you will not regret it: this old film is a cinematographic masterpiece, mesmerizing and stylish.
Louise was a perfect choice for the main character Lulu – explosive mixture of dark seduction and childish naiveness. With help of director Georg Wilhelm Pabst and camera man Gunther Krampf she reigns on the screen.
Miss Brooks looks gorgeous with sleek hair and curls.
It’s amazing, but she doesn’t look cheap or vulgar wearing dress with very low cut neckline and back.
Almost all dresses are with asymmetrical hem.
The wedding dress of femme fatale Lulu looks very modest comparing to many modern models.
Louise-Lulu with cigarette.
This dress looks very stylish, chic and morden though it was created 88 years ago.
For me Louise Brooks is an epitome of magic, charm and mystery – rare qualities in the modern movie industry. But I still hope that soon or later true beauty will come back to the cinema.
After looking at some tasteless photos of modern celebrities like
“you never guess where I’m hiding my other leg” Kaia Gerber’s picture for Vogue, my bleeding eyes need a treatment so I watch old good movies.
Recently it was silent film The Mysterios Lady with Greta Garbo.This very naive but very beautiful movie tells us story about love of Russian spy Tania Fedorova and Austrian officer Karl von Raden.
Director Fred Niblo, cameraman William H. Daniels and costume designer Gilbert Clark created a perfect femme fatale, seductive but not vulgar.
Garbo’s close-ups are impeccable. By the way, you can have thin upper lip and be extremely attractive.
These shots can turn into an inspiration for photographers and for those instagram queens, who can not live a day without posting picture of themselves.
Gilbert Clark created for actress one shoulder grecian dresses.
Of course, it’s silly to copy these outfits, but smart fashionista can pick a lot of stylish details which suit her.
Coats with big collars make slim girls silhoettes more feminine.
And I think this hat will add a vintage charm to a modern pant suit.
P.S. 11 year later Greta Garbo played another mesmerizing Russian lady in Ninotchka.
