Early Autumn || Navy, Red & Leopard

IMG_0813 csopy copy

What is it about a chill in the air that conjures such excitement?  I'm more than ready to watch snow falling outside my 1930 apartment window as Bing, Nat & Dean records play... while holding a glamorous festive cocktail of course!  I know I'm getting ahead of myself, as early Autumn days are still young with a hint of that crisp cool air.

So, I've begun introducing dashes of my favorite Fall prints and collecting endless soft knits.  This Unique Vintage stretch wiggle dress is a Fall staple for any curve-loving pinup like myself.  It has a 50s/60s bombshell silhouette while feeling modest and simple enough to go from day into night, which is actually what I did!  For my daytime errands, a vintage nylon scarf kept my demure chignon in tact.  That evening, I tied my scarf as a hair bow and switched my accessories for an event at Alice & Olivia benefiting the Blackhawk's charity.  This dress is the epitome of versatility, especially transitioning into this cooler season.  I'll leave you with some quotes from Marilyn Monroe...

Designers want to dress me like Spring, in billowing things.  I don't feel like Spring.  I feel like a warm red Autumn...

Despite it's great vogue in California, I don't think sun-tanned skin is any more attractive than white skin, or any healthier, for that matter.  I'm personally opposed to a deep tan because I like to feel blonde all over...

Happy Happy Fall!
