This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Magic in the Moonlight

August, 20, 2014

Over the weekend, I saw this Woody Allen movie that has audiences literally spellbound…by its alluring 1920s fashions. Emma Stone, the leading lady, pulled it all off as though she had been born for the era.

A few days after enjoying this fashion parade, I was invited to an alfresco black-and-white dinner party. So I went exploring in my closet, and found a dress with a trademark 20s wide waist gathered at the sides, and a long pearl necklace. I originally put this ensemble together for a Great Gatsby date event, but now the vintage look is in.

For current fashions with this feel, hunt no further than Donna Morgan. When it comes to those trademark long pearls, you can choose from a full spectrum of quality and price points. Splurge on something from Tiffany’s, scrimp on a similar look from Ross-Simons, or stay in the center with Stella & Dot.

Throw on a jacket with a romantic ruffle (similar) and you’re ready for any type of weather. Now you just need to find some moonlight and channel Emma Stone’s charm!
