Blouse-vintage, Skirt-Forever 21, Bag-vintage, Ring-YSL, Shoes-Forever 21

This fall fifties style is back and retro, clean, glamorous looks all over the runway. I love the way the fifties celebrated woman with curves and real bodies. I decided to try my own modernized version with big hair, dramatic eyeliner, and a full a line skirt. Since it isn't quite fall yet I was able to wear my Miu Miu Spring 2010 inspired platforms by Forever 21 with bare legs (I snagged the black pair too). I really loved the Miu Miu shoes, but was happy not to spend a ton on a trendy shoe. Once I am over them I can toss them with no regrets!

Eek! Taylor - these pics and this outfit are sooo incredible I don't know where to start! One, I LOVE the bag, 2 the shoes are SPOT on and I'll have to RUN to F21 tomorrow in search of any color (totally agree with you on the price for the trend - not worth it), 3, adore your hair and make up, and last, the outfit and location are so pretty! Love this post!

Helena from BrooklynBlonde said...

LOVE this outfit and those shoes! Agree 100% about the trend factor, so buying this and then tossing whenever you're sick of them is what I would do! How comfortable (or uncomfortable) are they?

Love that top too!

Robbie said...

You look beautiful. I am totally with you on your love for fifties fashion and how women with curves were revered rather than slated.
How did you do your hair, it looks lovely and voluminous.

Wish we had F21 in the UK...

Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

Everyone has been coveting those Forever 21 shoes. Hopefully they hold up longer than most F21 shoes do! They are SO cute.

christina of profresh style said...

this look is totally chic Taylor-you look absolutely stunning!

I'm loving that F21 made a knockoff of the Mui Mui's since 1. they sold out and 2. they are so unattainable.

Look how simple this is too!

Love the bag, Taylor! And those shoes are a steal! I agree that buying a little cheaper so you can toss them is a great feeling. I am eyeing some booties this fall for $30 that I may just do so I can toss them when I destroy them. I am so hard on my shoes.

the style crusader said...

taylor, i totally adore your style. this is quite a simple look but seriously chic. you've pulled off the old school glamour aspect perfectly. definitely agree that those shoes are a great substitute for the miu miu's. they are adorable. love the whole outfit.

p.s. i'm going to be in the states at the beginning of sep and really really want to find a gorgeous semi-sheer shirt (white, black or khaki)... have you seen any around somewhere reasonable? am slightly out of touch with my american brands...
