I will admit, as much as I love my photo shoots with Holly, it's intimidating when I think about emulating the looks of some of the most stylish screen sirens of the 20th Century. And as if taking on Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly wasn't challenging enough, this year's inspiration is the Holly Golightly of the modern era: Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw!
For our look this year, I settled on the iconic tiered tutu from the opening scene. Since I already have the Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes, I jut needed a tutu, a pink tank, and of course Carrie's tiered tutu!
Luckily, my favorite purveyor of tulle skirts, Space46Boutique, makes a Carrie tulle skirt that is perfect for the shoot! And as for Carrie's pink tank? This option is only $10, and part of the proceeds go to charitable organizations!
For Holly, I have gone through several tutu makers on Etsy but found that the options at PetAfterLife to be my favorite. The tulle is extra fluffy and seems to keep its shape better than other tutus with fewer layers! You may recognize her work from our photo shoot on Bitches' Guide NYC!
Holly will be wearing a basic pink tank from Baxter Boo to complete her look.
Of course, the biggest issue with recreating the look of a woman known for being an authority on all things sexy is legs and arms are on full display. After a frigid New York Winter, my arms and legs are pale and dry--not exactly display ready! Luckily, Influenster and Jergens sent me some BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream,* which promises to deliver flawless looking skin within 5 days! The formula has a slight tint to it so I noticed an improvement right away in masking small imperfections and adding a little color, and it has worked wonders on the naturally ruddy tone in my arms and my winter-rough elbows! I have been a fan of Jergens Natural Glow sunless tanner for a while, so it's great to have another product that gives a slight hint of color without risk of typical sunless tanning goofs!
I leave you to decide if the results are worth it when I post the photos in the next couple of weeks!
Until Next Time, Darlings!
