Mid-Century Going Mainstream and A Little Music

 Marella Agnelli

Ah Friday, finally
It's been such a busy week, mostly taken up by getting product organized for magazine photo shoots which of course I can't write about yet...
I can tell you this though, there is a definite a trend toward Mid-Century style.  We saw the beginning of that trend a couple of years ago with Mad Men, now it is going more mainstream with extrapolations of it in Vogue, Elle and W magazines.  And I couldn't be more pleased because I appreciate that aesthetic, that distinct look of sleek understated chic of Audrey Hepburn, Babe Paley, Marella Agnelli, Jean Seaberg, Diane Carroll, Grace Kelly and the Hitchcock heroines.
The look is all about quality, not quantity and it need not be expensive. It doesn't have to be all about Harry Winston style diamond cluster earrings, A single strand of cultured pearlsA bracelet with a single charm, A pearl circle brooch, A pair of pearl earrings that sit on the ear, will do.

This is amazing to me considering this has been my style of dress for decades.
I prefer clean lines-elegant and classic.
Thank God for this trend, I hope it stays for quite some time.
Lovely informative post, cheers!

I with you Kimmy, I'm tired of the unstructured "Flashdance" style stuff.

I agree, just one nice piece is enough, I don't like loads of jewellery worn together.

All the women you mentioned had fabulous style. Pearls have always been one of my favourites. I don't really wear earrings, only pearl or diamond studs xx
