A Modern Take on Holly Golightly

5 years ago

This little number was from a fashion challenge I did last year on Polyvore. One of the many prompts was for a `modern Holly` (as in Golightly). And they say that hindsight is always 20/20, right? That definitely proves true for me in some elements of this outfit.

Take the Dannijo necklace for example. It`s pretty, but it doesn`t really go with this outfit. I probably would have been better off going with less of a statement necklace and maybe something more streamlined. And the earrings probably should have been changed to, again, something a little less `NOTICE ME.`

Me ripping my own set apart aside, I still do like the dress and shoes and bag. I would be the crazy bastard who would stick some purple sandals from Yves Saint Laurent in there when, in so far as I know, Holly Golightly never really ever wore purple. But I like to do this thing where I stick in a pop of color in a set that tends to run more toward monochromatic. I.E. this set. Add in a looser updo (as opposed to Holly`s not-a-single-hair-out-of-place beehive from the movie and some 60`s-inspired sunglasses and a modern, but still with a vintage feel quilted handbag, and this is my idea of a modern take on the Holly Golightly look.

Whattya guys think?
