Now & Then: Eva Peron

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

If Eva Peron were still alive, she'd be wearing Carolina Herrara's Spring 2011 Collection.

Photobucket

An important political figure in Argentina during the 1940's, Eva Peron's wardrobe was full of classic, beautifully tailored, structured, and colorful pieces. I think this dress from Carolina Herrara embodies the bold spirit of Eva Peron while staying true to the style she wore most often. What do you think? If you'd like to see the rest of the "Now and Then" gang go here and as always I welcome suggestions!

Wander Like A Gypsy

(4 comments)
My friend Shelley once told me that one of the best night's of her life was dancing with gypsies in caves outside of Granada, Spain. I've always thought that was the most wonderful story. There's something so romantic and magical about the lives of gypsies. I think it's their freedom that is so alluring.

Now & Then: Grace Kelly

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

If Grace Kelly were still alive, she'd be wearing J. Mendel's Spring 2011 Ready to Wear Collection.

Photobucket
What do you get when you cross a movie star and a princess- one amazing wardrobe. Because Grace Kelly was both Hollywood royalty and real life royalty, I imagine that her closet was filled with racks and racks of amazing dresses. Flowing, white gowns that draped beautifully seemed to be a favorite of hers, so when I saw J. Mendel's stunning, Spring 2011 Collection I knew I had hit the jackpot. I think his gowns are a modern take on what she wore while she was with us- maybe a little more sexy but certainly elegant and stunningly beautiful just like Miss Kelly herself.  P.S.  how much do she and January Jones from Mad Men resemble each other!

I love it when I find a great new etsy store. Chakrapennywhistle is just that. Their pillow designs are inspired by early american folk art and I love them. And get this- Chakrapennywhistle are two friends who met through reading each others blogs and found out that they were actually neighbors in Arizona. Crazy.

I like the idea of finding little objects that you love and making necklaces out of them. Adding them to a chain and creating your own little vibe. I don't know if that's what happened here but I like to think it did.

Now & Then: Jane Austen

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

If Jane Austen were still alive she'd be wearing Erin Fetherston's Resort 2011 Collection.

Photobucket

I have to admit, this one was hard. I decided to go with this look from Erin Fetherston because it felt like something one of Jane's characters would wear if a modern day Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility were being filmed. I think Jane put a lot of herself and her acquaintances into the characters that she wrote about. In her real life, she loved to dance, take long walks in the country, read, and most of all she loved to study people. Does any of this sound familiar? I could definitely see Jane wearing this outfit while picnicking in the English countryside. What do you think? Thanks to Diana for the Jane Austen suggestion and to see the rest of the Now and Then gang go here.
