Coquettish Toile || Veronica Dress by Davis Fashion

Today is one for the coquette ladies, with dreamy french blue, pearly white and one perfect dress... Meet Veronica, a 1940's frock by Davis Fashion, inspired by the one and only Veronica Lake.  This limited edition beauty encompasses all the aspects I love in a dress... elegance and luxury, femme fatale sensuality, and a bombshell silhouette - she is the ultimate head turner!  Yet her feminine toile print just may be my favorite feature, which is 100% cotton and fully lined, and has built in cups for the perfect amount of support.

As a glamour girl, I couldn't love Davis Fashion's mantra more, "for women who what to be noticed," as all of their LA-made designs celebrate 1940's - 1950's styles in the most exquisite way.  There is an understated sex appeal to these decades which in my opinion, is powerful and "makes a woman terrifying" as my husband says.  This is just one of the reasons I love Davis, who is also a completely vegan and cruelty-free brand.

Today's set is 1894-built New York Life building, recently saved from it's destiny of destruction, thankfully to become Kimpton Gray Hotel!  Original details are visible throughout, as well as several 1920's deco additions.  Also making an appearance are the breathtaking 1800's constructed lion statues of beaux-arts Art Institute.

Red Autumn || SIL Stocking & Garter

It's officially Fall!  Let's start this joyful season with some red tartan and glamorous underpinnings.  To match my crimson autumn frock, I chose a red silky Secrets in Lace garter with six classic metal grips.  Another classic choice, is my go-to for black accents, the Glamour Euro Heel with the very nostalgic full fashion seam that we all love. 

Now, some twirls in the street to start this Monday off correctly :)

White & Lights || Ingrid Cream Coat by Pretty Dress

The cold season is almost here, and I'm excited to share the most beautiful coat today!  Ingrid by Pretty Dress is all golden age glamour, today's version of soft snowy winter white, with a creamy tan faux fur collar.  To match this creamy aesthetic, I added a pearly pillbox hat and poodle-inspired platinum undo.

Our setting is historic Palmer House, a 1920's rebuild of a previous structure destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire.  Below are the original 20's hand-forged visual masterpieces, Peacock Doors, which weigh more than a half ton each and are worth over a million dollars alone.  The doors were constructed to pay homage to the 1830's opulent boutique "House of Peacock,"  Chicago's historic emporium of fine china, jewelry and imported gifts of silver and gold.

Palmer is the utmost of glamour, and the perfect aesthetic for welcoming the beginnings of the most dazzling season of all.... I'm looking forward to wearing Ingrid to all the sparkling occasions ahead.
