Royal Peacock Blue

6:32 PM

 This remarkable dress from the DevilsInspired reminds me so much of  Dior's Timeless Designs in the 1950's. Dior's Iconic Full Swing Dresses always had such nice volume in their underskirts, I wanted to recreate that silhouette with today's Winter Inspired Look.  The Brand DevilInspired offers a wide selection of Retro Vintage to Victorian Era, of course I fell in love with this beautiful Peacock Blue Taffeta Velvet Brocade dress. I adore Vintage Inspired Dresses especially ones with a full skirt, they always have such beautiful volume & look the best when paired up with a Petticoat. With today's look I was inspired by Winter Fashion in the 50's, when receiving this dress I looked to 1950's Vintage Dior for Inspiration. 
This beautiful Taffeta Peacock Blue makes such a statement when the light hits the fabric you can see the beautiful sheen it has. The darling velvet brocade inspired victorian detail is a great addition to the fabric it really adds that royal touch, when I first saw this dress I knew it was perfect for the Holiday Season. The dress lay's beautifully on me, I am Petite Gal at 5'1, I find it sometimes hard to wear certain styles especially in full skirt swing dresses. The length hits me right at the calve which  I personally prefer, I don't like anything above my knee's or at knee length. The skirt has a few layers underneath to give that desired Dior Fullness, it has a layer of lining & a layer of tulle, I actually added a third layer by wearing a tulle petticoat to give extra fullness. 

 It's all in the Details!
This dress features a Hepburn inspired neckline that fits my fuller bust fairly well, I love how the neckline lays right beneath my collarbones. The dress also features 3/4 half sleeves but, of course being petite the sleeves are a bit longer on me so they end at the wrist. Which I actually don't mind because the fabric allows me to pull them up a bit without it being uncomfortable. The waist line is accentuated by this darling wrap that you can tie in a bow, you can choose to wear it in the front like I did or you can tie it in the back. The back of the dress is another stunning feature with that scoop in the back showing a bit of skin makes for a daring but tasteful reveal. The dress also has a black zipper that appears invisible to the eye, the zipper makes this dress easy to slip into especially for gals who like to wear shapewear or corsets. As you can see the Velvet Brocade detail is stunning up close & stunning from a far, it's definitely a show stopper. 

Now that it's getting cooler I was excited to pair this beauty with some noir sheer nylon stockings,  I absolutely love how they look paired up with a full swing dress it adds such a classic look. I paired my stockings with my favorite pumps, from Pleaser  these lovely pumps give me some height & they add some va va - voom to my look. I kept my look simple & classy, I wanted the color & pattern to do all the talking. 

Today's Make Up Look I stayed Classic but added some Beige & Brown Eyeshadow to create a Soft Neutral Smokey Eye. I keep my everyday look pretty simple, very 1940's. A Classic Red Lip is my go to, I am adventures with shades of red but, I hardly wear any other color.
