Tigress || Film Noir with SIL

Like a scene from a 40's film noir, subtle light was casting dramatic shadows across French Renaissance-style Wrigley Building this particular day.  This mood created the perfect setting for a tigress aesthetic... animal print accents & 40's-inspired roped shoulders.  While animal prints are often thought to be worn in summer, as exotic bathing suit prints, I like to take a cue from my favorite decade & wear it as a sultry yet chic winter accent.  War time starlets Rita & Veronica show us how it's done.

As for film noir, nothing says sophisticated crime drama like a pair of glamorous stockings.  Secrets in Lace always has me covered, with 100% authentic nylon, just as they were in bygone days.  Today's look was inspired by an image of the vintage glamour queen herself, Dita Von Teese, who also happens to carry a range of stockings with Secrets in Lace.  You can't go wrong with SIL!
