ASOS Blouse / AGAIN Stripe Maxi Skirt / ASOS Pumpkin Heels / IPPOLITA Constellation Ring + Turquoise bangle / JOHN HARDY Silver Cuff
When I first tried on this look in my bedroom, I glanced in the full length mirror and envisioned myself touring the Louvre Museum in Paris. There is something so incredibly vogue about body conscious pieces. Especially when slightly, baggier pieces are mixed in, juxtaposing the overall silhouette. That's my personal rule in fact. If one piece of my look is too short or snug, the other piece will compensate by being a tad longer or loose-fitting on my frame. This can add mystery and swank.
The fictional Morticia Addams was best known for the long, tulip skirts she wore around her home. Always admiring this style, and wanting to recreate a similar silhouette, I finally got that chance. Pairing my striped maxi skirt with a crisp, white button blouse was ideal.
Adapting to the changing of seasons, a little bit of turquoise jewelry married in well. Jewelry, to me, is an extension of one's personality. You can tell a lot about a person just from the accessories they choose to wear. I like pieces I can mix and match all year long. And these turquoise pieces from Ippolita do just that!
