This photoshoot originally accompanied an

article on Chictopia

. I got the chance to work with some of my favorite ladies to show you how to interpret beauty looks from past eras into looks in the 2010's. Whether you're into silent films and everything 1920's, still obsessed with Pretty in Pink, love paisley and bell-bottoms a little too much or wish you were Marie Antoinette (besides the whole off-with-her-head thing), you can be inspired by these looks and beyond today- and make it work! That's what I love so much about style in the 2010's; You have so many options, and you won't be laughed at for trying them out.

So...which girl are you? What era inspires your wardrobe and beauty looks most?

Gabriel took me on a surprise trip to Asheville, NC for my birthday on October 25. The weather was perfect, and the drive was splendid with the trees in magnificent shades of orange and yellow. We had lunch at one of my favorite spots in Asheville, Creperie Bouchon, and I paid a visit to the newly-renovated Vintage Moon (I

blogged

about this shop a little while back). The crazy-colorful knit cardigan I'm wearing is vintage, and it's patches remind me a bit of Moonrise Kingdom. My sheer rope-drape blouse is from TJ Maxx, and my boots are by Farylrobin (they gave these lovelies to me on my visit to their headquarters in NYC!). Here's to another year of being alive!
