{fashion folio} old hollywood kiss
French Connection Sub Silky Tie Top in Antique Lace + Jean-Michel Cazabat Ilaria Sculpted Suede Sandals in Beige + Kenneth Jay Lane Cubic Zirconia Drop Earrings + Benefit Cosmetics World Famous Neutrals - Sexiest Nudes Ever + Lauren Merkin Handbags Molly Suede Croco Clutch in Nude + Vince Cropped Leather Leggings in Black

I’m not usually one for vintage attire, but the glamorous Old Hollywood ambiance of a pussy bow blouse is something I see absolutely no harm in embracing. After all, it holds fast to the grown-up, feminine feel we seek in our daily dress, without looking childish.

Modernize the retro 60s aesthetic by pairing the creamy chiffon with super slim-fitting cropped leather leggings in a black as night hue. Architectural nude suede sandals add a hint of edge without competing with the rest of the look; a croco-embossed nude clutch creates definition {while remaining the perfect carryall for your night out necessities}; and sparkling drop earrings contribute a flirty twinkle to your person. Tease your hair at the crown {center-part in the front} for a Valley of the Dolls-inspired ‘do that is high-volume, low-maintenance; and give yourself a sultry stare with a mauve smoky eye - a makeup look that is oh-so dramatic yet not a bit over the top.

So classy yet edgy with those pants! I want them so bad. Good quality pants like those are the best and oh so flattering. And those earrings are like the icing on a very awesome cupcake.
