Hello you gorgeous ladies!
So if I remember correctly, the first time I heard the name “Marilyn Monroe” was way back in my teens, probably when I was in the 11th grade. I remember going to the cyber cafe (90s girls will nod their heads in unison) and searching for who this woman was that all my friends were talking about! My jaws dropped. Its hard to explain what I saw when I saw. Of Course, I was mesmerized with her beauty but what fascinated me more was the gorgeous ruffled gown that she was wearing! I could never imagine that something so modern could exist in that era!
I guess that was just a beginning of my fascination for 50s-60s fashion. As I grew older, I started appreciating vintage fashion a lot more. I was bowled over by Marilyn’s style in the movie The Seven Year Itch. I mean its hard to forget that unequivocally feminine ivory halter-neck dress with accordion pleated skirt that made history. One more famous actress of that era is the ethereal “Katherine Hepburn”. Such grace and panache! I love how these women romanced fashion!
Coming back to today’s look, I have created a look heavily inspired by the divas of the 50s & 60s. Yes, now you know the other favourite era I’d like to time travel to.
Ruffles played an integral part in vintage fashion, so in this post I’ve style this absolute stunner of a ruffled off-shoulder lilac dress from https://missselfridge.com/
My husband bought this dress for me on his recent trip to London. (Didn’t I mention before, that he has great taste?) The moment I laid my eyes on it, I knew this had to go up on my blog. The fit is to die for and the ruffled detailing at the hem screams vintage! This dress is so gorgeous that it hardly requires accessorising.
However, I went ahead with a statement ring from Vasundhara Jewellery. I had recently witnessed their new collection called “Reverence” at Lakme Fashion Week, Bombay. Drawing inspiration from Indian-origin flowers that are offered to deities, this collection is unique for its intricate detailing and use of varied textures and finishes to authentically capture various elements. I fell in love with the intricacy of the flower petals on the ring.
I have to give a Huge shoutout to the team who made this vision come to light! It couldn’t be possible without these exceptionally talented women who understood the mood of the look and did wonders!
Again, in terms of makeup, Sarah kept my look very fresh and glowing with glitter eyes to add a little drama and glam to the look.
I wanted soft bouncy curls as my hairstyle and I couldn’t believe how well Rishika managed my hair! It was exactly what I had envisioned.
Askara, our photographer knew the tone of the look so she played brilliantly with the lights inside the lounge and made me pose like I had never done before!
I hope I’ve done justice to the stalwarts of that period by creating this look and also been able to convey my thoughts across to you all!
Please do share your feedback, good or bad. 🙂
Until next post!
Lots of Love
