Yves Saint-Laurent once said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” The Ingenue pencil skirt I am wearing is a testament to that truth. Introduced by Christian Dior in the 1940s, the pencil skirt is over seventy years old. The details, though, are what make this pencil skirt serve both fashion and style. The row of small round buttons up the banded high waist are the kind of details you look for when you want something fashionable and eternal.
Speaking of details, the top I am wearing comes from a dress released by Les Petits Details for the With Love Hunt that opens tomorrow. The French Dress from LPD has a short mini-skirt and a fabric bow, but I was in the mood for something longer and sleeker.
The MiaMai Lily shoes also feature one of those little details that add up to great style. With three little bows on the counter, Lily is a delightfully feminine and dressy little pump. I love how the bows reflect the rows of ruffles on the neckline and balance the outfit.
I am wearing the newest updo from Lelutka. It is called Electra and has such a delightfully relaxed style with the tendrils of hair making a halo around the head.
The jewelry is from Donna Flora – a set called Pigalle. The skin is a special release for the With Love Hunt from PXL Creations.
