As mentioned last week, I got to be part of a collaboration with MAGNUM Ice Cream (Web/FB/Twitter) and alice + olivia to celebrate the launch of MAGNUM Mini ice cream bars. I had eyed these many a times while aimlessly wandering the frozen treat section at Target, and finally got a taste at the event. a+o will also be designing a mini skirt inspired by the bars, which I am curious to see revealed during Fall fashion week.
For the collaboration photoshoot, we each got to style looks and choose backdrops inspired by our favorite flavors. I was quick to select Classic, and wanted to channel an “old-time glamor” look using a sequined shift, long pearls, and a vintage jacket that brought out the glimmers of yellow from within the dress. Shift style dresses can be surprisingly flattering on petite women, especially if you have a smaller chest. If the dress just skims over your torso and drapes at the right places, it creates sleek, simple lines. I just like to balance out more covered shift dresses with higher hemlines and tall, neutral heels.
