The Innocents Abroad

Ralph Lauren top. Miu Miu skirt. Vintage costume gold, pearl/diamond & tusk necklaces. Seashell (a souvenir from my trip to St. Thomas) & costume shadow facet bracelets. Turquoise ring (a souvenir from my trip to St. Thomas). Vintage woven bag. Prada platform sandals.
My outfit was inspired by Romola Garai's wardrobe in the movie Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights - halter dresses, sweetheart necklines & full skirts... I played the Innocent Abroad in a knit ruffled top & a Miu Miu pleated geometric skirt. Miu Miu (Prada's secondary line designed by Miuccia Prada) is exemplified by the insouciant gamine charm of the starlets featured in its ad campaigns. This purse belonged to my grandmother in her 1950's heyday when she attended teas/dances weekly; the hard, round, woven sack hangs from a rope handle & the inside is still scented with her perfume.
