Maroon 5

Only Hearts top. Vintage Synonyme de Cearces Rech Paris skirt. Tulle bow headband. Vintage costume stone earrings. Vintage costume crystal & ribbon necklaces. Vintage costume gold bangle. Costume amethyst ring. Brown cable-knit tights. Vintage Lumured Corde Bead bag. Chanel ballerinas.
My outfit was inspired by the weather: autumn dissipating under a slew of snow... Maroon florals unite a cropped velvet top & a high waisted pleated skirt, while flashes of white peek out from my jewelry & purse. I smeared on some red lipstick & ventured out to see The Young Victoria; Emily Blunt is radiant in this movie, which is due in no small part to costume designer Sandy Powell's prowess. My love of period pieces culminates in their clothing (& reaches its apex with Milena Canonero, winner of the 2007 Oscar for Best Costume Design for Marie Antoinette).
Also it's worth noting Chictopia chose yesterday's outfit for their homepage again, making it two posts in a row - much thanks to Chictopia!
