SUMMER LBD: MRC BOUTIQUE + SASHA MAKS VINTAGE

IMG_3322IMG_3324IMG_3326IMG_3331IMG_3333Dress: Milly, c/o MRC Boutique (similar here and  here) / Shoes: DVF (similar here and  here) / Bag, Miel (similar here and  here ) / Necklace, Lanvin / Ring, contact info@sashamksvintage.com

Nothing beats an LBD’s style mileage! The little black dress is versatile, effortless, and can be styled in a myriad of ways. When I’m on the look out for cocktail dresses and really anything on trend and designer at a discount all year round, I head to Cow Hollow’s to MRC Boutique. I was immediately smitten with the sporty vibe of the mesh cap sleeves and side panels of this Milly dress. Here, I’ve paired it with classic leopard print pumps for texture and color, and an oversized,  geometric, vintage Lanvin necklace that’s perfectly in tune with the edgier vibe of the dress.

If you’re looking for designer fashion at a discount, there’s no better place to find them then at MRC Boutique! Currently on offer are brands like NSF, Chie Mihara, Haute Hippie and many more. And this upcoming Wednesday, July 30th, from 5-9pm you can shop their expertly curated selection along with vintage statement jewelry from your truly. We are donating a portion of proceeds to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue. Come out to shop, get your tresses styled by top stylists from Spoke & Weal and meet Bay Area fashion blogger, Vanessa, of Shopping, Saving and Sequins. Be sure to come early to get a goody bag from Ziesche Modern Apothecary! RSVP here.
We can’t wait to see you for a Radiant Summer!

How do you style your little black dress?
xx Sasha

This checks and dots mash-up of a vintage attached tie blouse and a Marni for H&M pencil skirt is topped off with another great collab of Maison Margiela for H&M double breasted blazer. The fitted blazer with a rolled shoulder bring and brogues ground the exuberant mix. A stack of chunky vintage bracelets echoes the geometric theme.

 Navy dress and Sasha Maks Vintage jewelryThis vintage navy dress with full sleeves is from I.Magnin. Originally it was below the knee and since it’s already so covered up, I had it shortened for a more updated look. Pairing it here with faux leather leggings, for one my fave trends that’s circled back around, dress-over-pants. Emma Watson showed us how to rock this look on the red carpet at the Golden Globes.
And was a popular look on the runway, seen at Pre-Fall 2014 Elizabeth and James, J.Brand, and McQ Alexaner McQueen.

Styled by Sasha Maks: Vintage Style

My personal style is deeply steeped in my interest in vintage clothes and jewelry. For day I love a tailored 1960s sheath or a loose fitting gauzy cotton maxi dress from the 1970s. For evening, I look for 1920s drop waist gowns, and 1930s bias cut satiny dresses. Of course I rarely wear head to toe vintage, I find it best to find one special piece and build a look around it.

I think it all began with film, in particular the French New Wave’s heroines like the enchanting Ana Karina’s gamine style in a Bande à part and Jeanne Moreau’s borrowed from the boys ensembles in Jules et Jim. And I was equally drawn to Hitchcock’s icy, classic blonde heroines, like Tippi Hedren, in Marni and Eva Marie Saint in North by Northwest, dressed in buttoned up prim suits and impeccably coiffed. And one of the most swoon-worthy wardrobes in film is Audrey Hepburn’s Parisian chic Givenchy gowns and more casual looks (capri pants and a snug top with v-neck back) in Sabrina. In the mid 60s in Two for the Road Hepburn is ultra-modern in a swirly Pucci-esque  print mini and a Space Age Paco Rabanne acrylic disk and metal chain dress.

There are countless other iconic muses that I can list that inspire my imagination, but I will wrap up here with Catherine Deneuve’s bourgeois housewife in Belle du Jour, costumed by Yves Saint Laurent in trim princess line cuts, and Roger Vivier’s Pilgrim buckle, patent leather, mid-heel shoes that became a runaway hit. What unites all these iconic women is how their wardrobes were an integral part of the film’s story and also informed their identity and expressed their sartorial style on the screen and off.

Here are a few  my fave vintage finds. I’m always on the look out for the next treasure!
What are some your favorite vintage pieces?
