Fashion DIY: How to Channel 1960’s Italian Vintage


One of my favorite eras is the 1960’s, particularly Italian 60’s.  The cinched wastes, sexy hour glass silhouettes, and warm wool–all contribute to a fabulously romantic attire.  Thanks to the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 RTW collection by Marc Jacobs, this fashion era was revisited brilliantly and the idea of a well-dressed woman is given attention.

Elle Magazine did an amazing  job in giving simple pointers on how to style yourself to channel this oh-so-fab vintage era.  They even include a simple checklist of the 1960’s essentials needed to don the look without seeming to try too hard.  Effortless chic is what we all want.

Are there any other fashion eras you love?



Video: Dior’s Cruise 2012 fashion film by Ellen von Unwerth, “I found my love in Portofino”

This will inspire and romanticize your day regardless of your mood.  A few weeks ago, Dior created a film titled “I found my love in Portofino”  starring the gorgeous models Jac Jagaclak and Antonio Navas and featuring the Dior Cruise 2012 collection.   Brilliantly directed by fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth and styled by Cathy Kasterine and Benjamin Canares, “I found my love in Portofino”  is a gracious fashion film that tells the story of a girl’s romantic encounter which turns into an enchanted love.

Now, if that doesn’t get you all mushy inside, I don’t know what would!

Here is the complete film.  It’s only 8:27 minutes long and worth every second.  Beautiful clothes, gorgeous people, and a nostaligic tune by the lovely Dalida–what more can you can ask for?  Well, besides actually being in Portofino this exact moment.

Remember Dior is one of the amazing brands available through our fab brand partner Saks Fifth Avenue!  To gain access to all of the lovely products available to shopkeepers request an invite to Shop My Label.
