If you’ve been anywhere near a mall (Zara stores specifically) then there’s a good chance you’ve already seen what’s very on trend for Spring.  The list includes: lace-up shoes, micro pleats, high neck bikinis and lots of shoulder!  Exposed shoulders or open backs have always been a sexier look than lots of cleavage in my opinion.  Girls who wants to amp up the sex appeal typically reach for a super low cut top or a too-short skirt (or sometimes both for a double whammy!) but why not do the unexpected?  Showing some clavicle can be so very chic when done right.

I’ve always gravitated towards off-the-shoulder style tops and dresses.  Women with smaller chests look especially flattering in this Bardot-esque style.  With warmer temps ahead, why not try a dress that shows a little shoulder?  I absolutely love this dress from Chi Chi London because it feels so very 1950s with the full skirt and midi length.

With off-the-shoulder styles, I tend to skip the necklace (unless opting for more dainty pieces) and look for a flattering statement earring.  I also tend to like hairstyles that lean more towards romantic than polished.  When your shoulders are exposed, I think that an uptight, coiffed up-do can tend to just make you look like either a ballerina or a school teacher.

I sometimes believe that I was born in the wrong era.  I love the style from Old Hollywood starlets so much.  The 1940s and 1950s fashion is exactly what I want to wear every day of my life.  I love a high waist and a full skirt.  I guess I’ll just settle for the title, “Old Soul” because that’s exactly what I am.  I love reading novels that take place in time periods past.  My favorite movies to watch are old classics.  I’m basically a 90 year old at heart.  And I’m totally okay with that.  I find myself looking up women like Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, etc. when I’m needing a little beauty or style inspiration.

What decade in history is your favorite?  Whether to read about or gain inspiration from?

    This dress is wonderful, isn’t it – you really do it justice – beautiful! I came across your blog, as I have just bought this dress for a wedding later in the year (in the UK), and I have no idea what sort of jacket / cover up / layer to pair with it… it may well be cold in August here! What would you wear? I am going shopping this Saturday to see what I can find!

      Thank You! I’m thinking a light colored, feminine cardigan would be a nice fit. If you want to be a little more edgy, a blush leather jacket could pair nicely as well. I hope this helps! xo
