Like Louise

30 May

Everyone has their favourite style icon of the silver screen, be it Audrey Hepburn or Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe or Greta Garbo but my personal favourite is Louise Brooks. I love the styles of the ’20s and I think she looked incredible in her silks and pearls. She seemed to be rarely without a long string of pearls draped around her neck and could often be seen adorned with glistening, ornate gems. She was the perfect combination of edgy and elegant.

    The two Hepburn ladies are my favorites from the golden age of Hollywood; however, I’ve always admired the styles from the ’20s. Louise Brooks is truly fabulous, and I’m loving the first pair of Accessorize earrings! So cute.
    It’s my first time on your blog and it is absolutely charming — can’t wait for more!

    When I think 20s I think of the movie The Great Gatsby – wonderful dresses with pearls, and some fabulous short haircuts. The pics are great!
