Noir 1940's || Secrets in Lace Vintage Dot Backseams



On the streets of New York City, by the breathtaking 1907 Petrossian Caviar building, fog rolled in to create a film noir feeling to my all black ensemble.  Appropriate for this cinematic setting, my 40's inspired outfit combines elegance & femininity while remaining distinctly dark - also perfect for October which is just around the corner!  Today's stocking by Secrets in Lace couldn't be a better fit for this mood... Vintage Dot Backseam in black.  I'm a sucker for both polka dots and having the seam on my stockings, so this style is a gem.

Cognac Orange || Autumn with Top Vintage



It's no secret that Fall is my favorite time of year.  I couldn't live without the change in weather which begs for cozy textures, snuggling with coffee or tea, and eventually walking through the explosions of colors from falling leaves.  I find that I'm most inspired when the colder seasons begin to approach, and in style, particularly with colors.  Today's autumnal hues are brought to you by Top Vintage... who happen to have one of the best A/W  selections!  Brianna is a rusty "cognac" shade of orange, which I immediately fell in love with, as well as the unique 50's inspired neckline tie neck detail.  I added navy blue accents, and swooned for Dee - spotted pumps with floral detail & tweed-like print along the sides.  SO perfect for Fall!

Debonair Damask || 50's with Lady V London



Corinthian columns, classical architecture & an arch inspired by the Arch of Constantine... this setting was a beautiful complement to my new Lady V London dress.  Hepburn 'Debonair Damask' features an elegant high neckline and 50's inspired flared skirt.  While displaying a glamorous print for fancy affairs, she's made of a comfortable cotton, so could easily be worn for daytime looks as well.  This time though, I'm feeling regal in velvet & crystal accents.
