House of Lords circa 1950

I purchased this seductive 1950s lipstick red silky nylon chiffon cocktail party dress with a micropleated overlay, criss-crossed satin trimmed nipped at the waist and elegant full skirt from ETSY along with this amazing pair of vintage gloves and purse. Though I didn’t pair the dress with my satin Isabel Toledo’s (from Payless mind you ;o), I went ahead and made the look a reality for the Made-By event at the House of Lords in London.

Origami, my love.

Some of my favorite looks from Lina Rennell. Simple, delicate, idyllic. Organic wool crepe dresses in geometric prints. Pair that with some of the latest organic cotton canvas zoe&zac boots for fall and you got your entire look right there.

Through my eyes I can see
A shooting star
Weavn it’s way across the sea
Somewhere from mars
Down the street we would run
To scratch our names in the park
Young and free in the sun
Wheels upon the tar
I said you do
I said you do
I said you do
I said you do

Is it just me or does Williamsburg erode your wardrobe down to geek chic? 
Let’s start from toe to head because head to toe is so overdone. Shoes: Charmone (vegan heels for anyone who doesn’t eat things with a face); Rag & Bone skinnies; Elle McPherson bralette; Mary Meyer shirt; Lara Miller organic cotton-hemp silk blazer; and A Peace Treaty handwoven scarf. sweet.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

- Maya Angelou, excerpt from Phenomenal Woman
