When I put on this dress, Half Measures, from Dead Dollz for Penumbra’s Autumn/Winter Fashion Week, I immediately thought of Audrey Hepburn. It has a similar front neckline to the little black dress by Givenchy for Breakfast at Tiffany’s. While the wide circle skirt is a complete opposite to the long, slim pencil skirt of that iconic gown, it is still something she would have worn.
Audrey Hepburn remains one of the great fashion icons achieving a kind of immortality with her legacy – not just in film but in fashion and even more importantly, with her activism. She was far more than a pretty face, but was a wise woman who worked tirelessly on behalf of refugees as Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, a passionate commitment that may have risen out of her experiences as a teenager in World War II working as a courier for the resistance while one stepbrother went underground and the other was in a labor camp.
Because this dress has such a classic vintage shape updated with a slightly exaggerated poof at the waist, I wanted shoes that combine classic shapes with a modern twist and these Regan shoes do that perfectly seeming to be classic peep toe pumps until you notice they are heelless. You might think they are impossible to walk in, but as Audrey said, “Nothing is impossible.”
Incredibly, ploom released this Brooke hair – with its very Audreyesque undo this month. It must be fate. I added flowers from Glam Affair that are available at The Liaison Collaborative.
One of the most exciting things this week is that League has made appliers for Slink Physique, so I can haul my skin out of the closet and wear it again. The Glam Affair flowers, by the way, come in several colors and with 2 pieces of each color, one for each side of your head, so you can wear on the left, the right, or both sides like a crown.
