dream outfit: an ode to madge

I was playing virtual dress up with some of the things I’ve been admiring lately. After I had it all put together to my liking, I realized that the past week’s frequent listening to and watching of older Madonna videos had definitely left its mark. I know it is a little much, but I really do love all of it together. Now, I’m thinking of it as my loose interpretation, Madonna style pastiche. An updated, unconscious noughties nod to some of Madge’s looks from the eighties.

Top (accessories & shoes): 1. Sunglasses by Karen Walker Eyewear (she is so amazing!) 2. Laurel Wreath Modern Crest Necklace by Alisha Louise 3. Fleur-de-Lis Modern Crest Necklace by Alisha Louise (more about Alisha Louise in my earlier blog post here) 4. Grey Enamel Locket Necklace by Trois Petits Points 5. Rose Gold Loulou Ring by Ca & Lou 6. Classic Silk Pump by Marais 7. Vivier Re-Make Bag by Clare Vivier 8. The Briar Rose Scarf by Pauper Voile

Bottom (apparel): 1. Mercury Nicole Jacket by Kate Spade 2. Vintage 80s Ocean Life Wool Plaid Skirt from Clever Nettle on Etsy 3. Stormy Seas Tights from Anthropologie 4. Rouge Allure Lipstick in Lover by Chanel 5. Angeliques Sous La Pluie by Jean-Claude Ellena from Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle (one of the most beautiful perfumes that I have ever smelled–quiet, but insanely sexy) 6. OB LA DI Top by Secret Squirrel (more about them in my earlier blog post here)

    Awesome post! I recently re-watched Desperately Seeking Susan, and so enjoyed her fun style – not to mention her spirit. Perfect ode, these picks really do capture her essence!
