vintage inspired.

vintage inspiredAfter seeing a wonderful film over the weekend, Bright Star, I was completely intrigued by the beautiful cinematography and costumes of the true story of John Keats and Fanny Brawne’s love. Often I find myself gravitating towards organic and rustic looking jewelry, equestrian style boots, sheer ivory blouses, lacey tops, classic blazers; all are quite vintage inspired pieces that can look modern and edgy at the same time. The smoking jacket is classic but with a long line lapel and wrap over buttoned front it creates a different take than a usual blazer. These harem pants are cashmere, the ultimate fall and winter indulgence and I feel that I would be completely satisfied wearing them throughout the next few months. The Golden Goose boots and Jerome Dreyfuss bag made of a distressed grey leather compliment an all black look well, especially paired with oxidized silver jewelry or mixed chains. The Alice and Olivia necklace with chain appliqué details is more interesting than the common layered chain necklaces. Oxidized silver always reminds me of a rustic wrought iron fence and the Alex and Ani champagne diamond ring is very simple and pretty. The fettY bracelet adds more romantic charm with diamonds that say “what if” in braille. The two booties differ in vintage appeal but the Kors boots are a dark grey-green suede and the Anthropologie wedges are burnished brown with a wrap around buckle. Both have a curve on the heel or wedge that softens the look. All three of the pieces: the Robert Rodriquez pants,the Kova & T bodysuit, and the Helmut Lang blazer would look great together or with other romantic and vintage looking pieces.
