Thursday Thrill – The Sophisticate

Sweet and sophisticated is on our Thursday Thrill agenda today. Last week, we had an eye-popping red bouffant bombshell, but today's thrill is more demure.

To me, these pieces say, "that girl has her life together and a good head on her shoulders, but gosh darn she's cute to boot!". Look at the delicate diamond cut-outs on the neckline of this 1950's floral dress. So tasteful, but fun and flirty at the same time!

And I think I knew as soon as I saw this dress that my magnolia fascinator was the perfect accessory choice! "You Call Everybody Darlin'" has a vintage gold earring upcycled into the centerpiece of this ivory hair flower and I think it just speaks to the gentility of the whole outfit. How charming would a girl look pulling out a cute compact from a little handbag to freshen up before heading out into the wide world.
