Thoroughly Modern

3.1 Phillip Lim dress. Calvin Klein belt. Vintage costume pearl necklace worn as headband. Vintage costume gold & black/gold necklaces. Vintage costume stone bracelet. Costume amethyst ring. Hue leopard tights. Chanel ballerinas.
This Art Deco dress time-travels back to the Jazz Age, where bohemians abounded - such as Louise Brooks (a silent film siren) & Kiki de Montparnasse (a muse to photographer Man Ray). If we consider designer Paul Poiret to be Phillip Lim's forebearer (this frock is the navy version of look #21 from Mr. Lim's fall 2009 RTW fashion show), then my outfit could've graced either one of the aforementioned flappers. The dress' beading undulates over its batwing sleeves & scalloped hem (emphasized by a pair of kicky leopard tights), while a minimalist silver belt tailors the look a bit. Now if only I could find a speakeasy to practice my Charleston...
