I'm sure I was the last of us girls to see it, but believe me, it was one of those films I yearned to see on the big screen. Alas ,time slipped away and it was the small screen after all that inspired me. Marie Antoinette is a feast for the ears and eyes,and made me wonder...what would Marie wear today?
I believe our Marie would be just as hip as the actress who played her. Surely with the arsenal of family heirlooms at her fingertips ,she would find some wicked cool combinations of vintage and modern.Rhinestones and red lipstick,always the perfect statement.
I can just hear her now,"Louis do you mind if I grab your dear departed Mamans,diamond and lucite heels?
I think she would jump right on the dress and skinny jeans thang,proving that this particular trend is not going away anytime soon. Shown here with a sheer pink lace dress ,leopard pumps,and silver box bag from the 50's.
Hot pink would remain near and dear to her heart.
Though she might pair her short version with a lucite bag and matching giant platforms.
She would ofcourse shop at Etsy ,where she would no doubt find this amazing silouhuette neclace from Paraphernalia.
She would trade this floral print ....
..for this ,ironic "Marie had a little lamb" print 70's nightgown,paired with plastic Cinderella pumps.
A last minute decision to belt it 'neath the chest would produce just the right empire waist effect.
If our time travlin', vintage lovin' Marie loved overalls as much as your fashion editor,she might grab for these choices in her royal closet. A simple sheer ruched blouse and a pearl and rhinestone collar,with a beaded bag and plastic pumps.
For a jacket? She might add this beaded 50'cardigan and trade the collar for pearls(too much bling).
Or perhaps she would wear the beaded cardi 'neath the bib.
...and add a perfectly patina'd jean jacket to further de-bling-a-fy the ensem.
Or maybe she would wear it like this.
