Impress For Less // 09

For this edition of impress for less, I was inspired by one of the main ladies in the film “I demoni di San Pietroburgo,” which I’ll be watching tomorrow at MOPA. Anna the stenographer wears many stylish outfits, but my favorite was her black dress with a peter pan collar that was styled with a black brooch, silver embellished drop earrings and minimal makeup. Her natural beauty truly shines with this look. I thought it could be fun to recreate her look, but with a more modern twist.


In the film Anna wears a dress with long sleeves and even longer skirt, very appropriate for that time, but for us a short vintage inspired dress with the same collar brings this dress to the 21st century. Make this ensemble more modern with a sleek ponytail, cat-eye liner and nude lipstick. Complete the look with ivory heels, a vintage brooch and crystal-embellished drop earrings.
