Lookbook: Feeling Fifties

October 14, 2011

Cardigan, J. Crew. Jeans, Ishtar. Pumps, Jessica Simpson. Scarf, vintage. Belt, vintage Coach.

I’m a sucker for all things fifties-inspired, but a recent showing of the play Clybourne Park completely reignited my love for the fashion of the era. Big, bouncy curls, red lips, and cashmere twinsets might be from another time, but they have a timeless feel that still works today. The October Vogue editorial with Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe perfectly sums up the idea of classic 1950s beauty that I’m trying to emulate here. (Do yourself a favor and look at the editorial – the styling is stunning.)

    I love your hair in this post! Big loose curls are truly a classic.

    You look adorable, and so not costume-y. And you’re right, the editorial’s great!
