With a new year full of mystery and potential ahead of us, I can’t help but look to the classics for clues for the coming year. In both music and fashion, I love when “oldies but goodies” and contemporary innovations meet in the middle. In the outfit below, I combined two party-perfect dresses with a collection of ageless accessories. To match, I created a soundtrack for your New Year’s festivities.
Whether you’re chilling at home, or throwing a grand party, I hope you enjoy this Style Soundtrack!
A production of classics. Those two dresses may be separated by decades, but their accessories bring it all together.
Track 1: Ablaze with Beauty Dress —With its universally flattering hourglass silhouette, this ’50-’60s dress will always be a hot topic.
Track 2: Keynote Speaker Hat —Top off an outfit of any era with a versatile hat that can hop through time like Doctor Who.
Track 3: Eyedust in Dragon Scales — It’s your time to sparkle. Give your wink a twinkle with this glimmering eye shadow.
Track 4: Gold Lion Earrings — These kitty cats will roar in 2011 with you.
Track 6: Arabian Tights — Sexy and statement-making, these tights are right for any year.
Track 7: Wish You Were Heel — Heeled, black Mary Janes. How much more classic can you get?
These are songs that I could play year after year. Featuring many goodies from Glenn Miller (a favorite since I was 13) to MGMT, and a shoutout to ModCloth’s opening of its San Francisco and Los Angeles offices with Best Coast, this playlist is one for the ages!
