{Friday's Fancies} Hollywood Glamour

This week's Friday's Fancies was one of the most fun I've participated in.
There's something so dreamy and luxurious about old Hollywood. 
Rich, deep and dark. It's just lovely.


And dreaming up an ensemble inspired by old hollywood glamour...well what more could a girl ask for.



Deep reds, rich black with pops of sparkle and gold. 
I can't think of anything much more glamorous than old Hollywood.

hope you have a lovely weekend!
I'm on the road again but hope to be back and settled (for a while at least) on Monday

until next time,
xx

Ooo, lovely design Mae. I have always liked the Old Hollywood glamour feel. And I am not sure why, but I always felt like I needed to be blonde to truly embrace the look. I know that is not true...but just another random thought I have when thinking about style :-)
Hope you are enjoying your Friday friend!

Beautiful! That black dress is absolutely stunning. I'm newly inspired to try rocking some seriously red lips, which I've always been a bit timid about.

I'm so glad I came across your blog - it's super inspiring to me (I'm a lawyer doing a stint abroad and plotting my return to the US, so I'm loving your story!). Following along! :)

If only I had somewhere fabulous to go that would require a floor length gown... I need this in my life.
