Love Was Just A Glance Away, A Warm Embracing Dance Away

I love when clothes transport you to another time. When I saw this coat on ASOS, I knew it would make me feel likeRita Hayworth in the 1940′s. I could imagine her wearing it on a night out with Orson Welles. Despite the fleetingness of that relationship, it remains one of my favorite Hollywood romances of the 20th century. His felt suits and slicked back hair. Her ringlet curls and big, inquisitive eyes. I know the warm wool of the coat will keep me warm while radiating that old glamour feel I always crave.

In terms of this dress, it was something a little out of my comfort zone. Though I adore velvet, I’ve never been much of a stud-embellishment kind of gal. But the tie dye texture and high neck make it so that instead of looking like club-wear (as I think most studded pieces often do) it looks retro and an ideal match for the cotton candy pink vintage coat. I had to pair it with a wide-rim hat. It just seemed right.
