Hello, my friends! Normally, women don’t like to dress like each other, or worst, get caught wearing the same stuff in public. Women, however, also enjoy copying the outfits and styles of other famous women. Aren’t we complicated? ;D So I thought it would be interesting to take apart some style icon’s signature styles, mix with my own interpretation and person items, to see what kind of new (old) style I can come up with. Today’s post and future posts on similar subject will be collected under “That’s Iconic”.
My inspiration of today’s outfit came from a recent acquisition — a 3-strand pearl necklace. Normally, I am a custom jewelry kind of gal, but a girl is gotta have some pearls. My new business venture also brought me much closer to some fine pieces, it only seemed natural to add a few to my personal collection.;D Three-strand, after all, can be easily seen as grandma’s hand-me-downs. To wear multi-strand pearl necklaces without looking too stereo-type, one has to add fun factor, and who else, other than the girl wearing an all black Givenchy gown, standing outside of Tiffany’s at 5am?
By taking Holly’s style apart, I see that the pearls, the black dress, high bun and big, bright eyes are key elements. Multi-strand pearls, check; black outfit, check; high-bun up do, check! Even tossed in a pair of fun heels since my skirt is shorter. Big, bright-eyes, oh I lost that battle long ago (ever since birth, actually), what about some dramatic eye makeup? Voila!
How does it look? Does it remind you of Breakfast At Tiffany’s or Amy Winehouse reincarnated into an Asian body? ;D Nonetheless, I had fun making this post and I hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much for reading! Until my next post.
