pretty things no. 20

Happy Saturday, everyone! For this weekend's collection of pretty things, I was kind of inspired by the kind of classic going-out evening looks we saw a lot of in the 90s. Specifically, I was thinking of Meredith Blake's style in The Parent Trap. Timeless and put together, but with the distinct feel of a 90s power woman. There might be a little bit of Princess Diana in there too.

Starting off with the most important piece, this slinky black dress from Versace. The neckline and the slight off-the-shoulders cut are so elegant paired with the tighter fit of the dress. 

I'm so drawn to nude strappy sandals and particularly love this Gianvito Rossi pair. The matte leather and little buckle detail make them feel so expensive.

If you ask me, the perfect evening bag is the Saint Laurent monogram envelope wallet. It's compact, sleek, and instantly recognizable which upgrades even a casual look.

Another dress I'm loving is the little white dress, like this one from French Connection. It has a very Meghan Markle feel, as well as being something I think Meredith Blake would have worn. This is the kind of dress you can wear to the office as well as out for an event.

This Gucci Dionysus cuff bracelet is incredible. It honestly feels like something you'd find in a museum that was unearthed from the tomb of some ancient queen.

And finally, you can't have a classic, elegant 90s-inspired evening look without a beautiful red lip. I recommend Tom Ford, because honestly, just saying your lipstick is Tom Ford is enough to make you feel elegant.
