OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: VINTAGE VIBES

 

A new month has arrived and so has our brand new Outfit of the Week. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, we wanted to get things off to a pink accented start. We are taking wardrobe inspiration from one of our all time favorite muses this week, Barbie! Her vintage style will never go out of fashion and we are mixing it up by putting a modern day spin on it. Starting off our girly look is a new take on Barbie's iconic black and white striped ensemble. This sparkly Saint Laurent mini dress is embellished with hundreds of black and off white sequins, which are padded at the shoulders to create the illusion of a slimmer waist and lined in smooth satin. This could easily be worn with or without tights or stockings, but with cooler temps settling in, we'd go for with. Adding a little sass to our footwear, we brought in a cheeky pair of Gucci pumps. Made in Italy from shiny patent leather, the playful peep-toe silhouette is highlighted with a hand embroidered lip-appliqué and gold T-bar straps that elegantly frame your feet. Now we all know Barbie has a Dreamhouse, but now she also has a dream bag. Inspired by her iconic dressing table, Charlotte Olympia's Perspex box clutch is topped with a detachable gold-tone brass panel with an enameled lipstick, perfume bottle and faux pearl embellished mirror. Nothing like a clutch that also doubles as a little piece of art. We kept up the vintage trend with our jewelry, via a gold-tone and white mother of pearl chain and bracelet from Chanel Vintage. If there is one company that remains timeless with their designs, it is the house of Chanel. For a little retro fun, we added a pair of angular cat-eye sunglasses by Victoria Beckham. The best thing about these sunnies is that they can be worn every day, and are a great staple to add to your wardrobe. For beauty, we went for full, flirty lashes with a little help from Dior beauty. This mascara is a cult favorite and a must-have for any makeup lover. Whether you are feeling like a Barbie girl or just want to have a little fashion fun, in this ensemble you are sure to give nothing but positive "Vintage Vibes!"
