A Gangster Fairytale: Magical, Rich and Racy
Fashion Cliff Notes | Outfit Ideas
On a recent outing with photographer Peter Koloff of Black Dot Creative, we explored the park while I played dress up. This outfit was inspired by 20s style Boardwalk Empire and one of my favorite fairytales: Little Red Riding Hood. The rich, red velvet cape coat and faceted beaded hat are a stark contrast to the dead, wintery landscape which also served as inspiration for the chosen outfit. This ensemble conjures up a sense of magic and myth as sparkly turbans are usually reserved for the mystical while the long red coat teeters on ecclesiastical garb. Under all of this plushness a racy outfit is revealed. The suggestive outfit is symbolic of what lies beneath the cloaks of fairytales and clergy.
The velvet Cape Coat is Vintage from Trashy Diva in New Orleans. The Turban is from Zara. The black dress is from Brooklyn4Play and the Faux thigh high stocks are from Gigi K.
