Vogue Australia got all kinds of 90s inspired with their prints, fits and jewelry. The style is effortlessly 90s with a modern twist and is done well (take notes for Spring + Summer ladies!). To see more from the shoot with Cameron Russell photographed by Benny Horne go here.
Today's Get The Look feature is inspired by Tobruck Ave's Kiara. A fashionable little bug she is and her photography is just beautiful. This is a great little outfit to transition from Summer to Fall and you can get the look from our very own ShopEBV!
"Marilyn Monroe was the sex goddess, Grace Kelly the ice queen, Audrey Hepburn the eternal gamine. Ms. Taylor was beauty incarnate. As the director George Stevens said when he chose her for “A Place in the Sun,” the role called for the “beautiful girl in the yellow Cadillac convertible that every American boy, some time or other, thinks he can marry.” " NYT
Beauty incarnate she was. With her deep violet eyes, dark hair and that waist, she is probably the one I wish I could have been the most out of the four icons the New York Times mentioned. It's probably controversial, but Audrey Hepburn & Grace Kelly are just a little too perfect. Taylor had more of a realness about her, less aloof, more flawed and still alluring. Maybe it's her admitting to her slight vulgarity?
"On screen and off, Ms. Taylor was a provocative combination of the angel and the seductress. In all her incarnations she had a vibrant sensuality. But beneath it was more than a tinge of vulgarity, as in her love of ostentatious jewelry. “I know I’m vulgar,” she said, addressing her fans with typical candor, “but would you have me any other way?”" NYT
Her life was full of ups and downs, but what a ride it was. To me that's a really lived life. And the passion and love she had for her husband, Richard Burton, is just admirable. So there, I said it. To have it all and to mess up, to live to the fullest, and to love jewerly shamelessly - Elizabeth Taylor is my icon.
Here are a few of my favorite images (and oufits!) of Elizabeth Taylor (pardon the lack of credits, but I found them via Google Images...)
In A Place in the Sun
That band jacket! Is it Michael Jackson's?
In Cleopatra, sporting a snake armband and a micropleated dress.
High-waisted pants and a sweetheart bralette (the GUESS? models WISH!).
As a follow-up post to yesterday's vintage vs. new finds, we took a look back at the Sold Archives of Market Publique to find items that are inspirations to some of the new trends cropping up for Fall.
If you missed out on these, fret not. There's new (vintage) items posted on Market Publique daily, and with these unique vintage finds, you will sure be ahead of the curve, inspiring the trends to come.
Inspired by fashion blogger Christine, who writes My Style Pill, I have been on the hunt for a vintage watch necklace. Her watch was passed down from her grandmother, and she put it on a chain.
I love the look because ever since cell phones became ubiquitous, you don't really need a watch. So watches have become more ornamentation than utility pieces. And why not? The vintage pocket watches are handcrafted beautifully and relics of a past time (pun intended?).
A closer look at Christine's vintage watch.
For those who are not so lucky to get such jewels from gran and gramps, there's still a way to get an authentic and unique vintage piece.
Enter Corvus Noir. The local New York City designers search high and low for unique vintage pieces– pocket watches, secretary pens, silver penknives, rhinestone-encrusted wild cats– and make them more wearable by putting them on reconstructed vintage chains. The chains are a statement in and of itself, with pieces of vintage rosary beads, chunky liks and other amazing vintage finds.
