…at least the last of the Neo-Victorian OOTD posts from me for awhile, after a week full of them.
This week started with my sharing Neo-Victorian fashion from a Fashion Show I attended last year in Boston, put on by The House of Findings at The Langham Hotel in Boston. I am bringing this “week of Victorians” to a close with a beautiful Neo-Victorian OOTD on my dear friend, Alyona. Since I am a close acquaintance to Mayra, the incredible woman behind The House of Findings, I was given first dibs to purchase the vintage treasures featured in the show. One such treasure is the vintage slip Alyona is wearing today by french designer, Guy Laroche. I included photos of how Mayra styled this skirt for the show following the photos of the look I styled for Alyona.
For Alyonas’ Neo-Victorian look, I chose to style the Guy Laroche slip over bare legs to give a sexy peek of Alyonas’ gorgeous body. The look gets it’s Neo-Victorian influence from several pieces, including the lace-y vintage teddy from the 1980’s, the super-cinching corseted belt by Kiki de Montparnasse, the feathered bolero by TopShop, and the vintage ornate gold necklace that is actually from the late-1800s, during the Victorian Era. You might remember another way I recently styled the ruffled vintage teddy from THIS recent post about Breaking the Fashion Rule of pairing Black with Brown. The final touch to Alyonas’ look is a beautiful sterling silver purse from the 1920’s.
