Retro Glam

February 2, 2011

Dita Von Teese can basically do no wrong in my book. She is always immaculately put together, and she knows exactly what suits her and sticks with it. This lady has a look.

I love her here in a peach Jenny Packham dress and bronze accessories. Most people would never go with red lips, but she pulls it off with panache. She smartly went simple with the jewels, choosing a pair of yellow gold and diamond retro earrings that aren’t too flashy, but have a bit of personality. I am a huge fan of vintage button-style earrings, and they are totally back in style these days. See below for some of my favorites:

While it may at times seem inaccessible, Dita Von Teese’s pinup/burlesque/retro style is often times made up of a few very easy-to-wear pieces that would look good in anyone’s wardrobe. Take, for example, her look at the Jean Paul Gaultier Ready to Wear Spring/Summer 2011 show on October 2. Gorgeous crocodile clutch? Check. Sparkly Louboutins? Check. Long gloves? Yes, please.

Any one of these pieces can take you straight through the season. We have a couple of stunning Chanel crocodile clutches that I would gladly add to my own collection:

CHANEL Vintage Crocodile Westminster Envelope Flap Bag & Clutch

CHANEL Crocodile Shoulder Bag & Clutch

And I’m loving these red suede elbow-length gloves as well. They are perfect for the 3-quarter-length sleeves on many of the season’s best coats.
