Dress: Mod Dolly
Classic Chain Necklace: Gogo Philip
Necklace worn as Bracelet c/o Gogo Philip
I never thought I could look so mature and sensible as I do in this look. When I had the idea to express several genres of style based around Gogo Philip jewelry I thought instantly to challenge myself to the extreme limit of what I call my "style". I wanted to challenge myself to do something sophisticated.
I don't think in 23 years I've ever looked so mature.
I decided to channel my inner Jackie Kennedy/ Audrey Hepburn/ Twiggy and go for a 60s look going for minimal makeup, pale lips, the beehive and shift dress.
So maybe its not minimal makeup but no blusher (not even my trusted lilac blusher) and eye shadow (I missed my smokey eyes) is a big change for me, plus my first attempt at a beehive I felt like a completely different person.
I tried to bring the look a little up to date with my tartan dress. Although shift dresses were a 60s staple tartan is all over A/W.
I tried to make the look understated (again hard for me) with simple accessories, my classic chain done all the real work with my 7 Dwarfs necklace as a delicate bracelet, a good alternative to the Plated bracelet or Dog Head Bangle.
Or I could swap the necklace for a statement pair if earrings- I'm still lusting after the Brooke Palm earrings and nothing says sophistication like a pair of pearls.
So what do you think of my sophisticated look? I could totally be taken home to meet someones parents.
P.s. this is the first tine I attempted a beehive- I love it but can do with some tips.
