Early summer, the wind is warm, a feeling of wild Jane Austen romance is wafting in the air, and I am waiting to go on a journey. Tightly gripping my leather suitcase holding my beloved soft summer cape, a book, work sketches, and the confidence, this is the new beginning.
Envisioning the strong female discovering her strength to follow her dreams, I created this soft but confident look true to a woman pathing her way. The beautiful silk dress from Yves Saint Laurent (vintage) is held loosely around the waist by Perlenkette 1 (link).
The bold stainless steel necklace (Kette 2 link) is a statement of her believes and that she is not afraid to show she stands for equality and diversity. I chose to show only the nameplate pendant and hiding the other one. The "MYL" tag stands for the belief in equality, supporting less fortunate people, and celebrating diversity - it is part of the brand's message.
MYL BERLIN is very eager that their customers know about this and spread the message further to provoke a rethinking and change in the society, even if it means that some narrow-minded people will refrain from buying.
Classic and beautiful pumps from Yves Saint Laurent complete this timeless outfit. I wanted to focus on the flow of the silky dress, only held lightly by the genuine pearl necklace (Perlenkette 1) around the waist.
Perlenkette 1 is a necklace that can be worn as an extra-long necklace or wrapped around the neck twice. However, I chose to use it as an elegant belt because of its classic and minimal elegance and loose fit, which adds a sensual touch to the entire ensemble.
I hope you enjoy this vision that I have put together using some vintage pieces and the strong and empowering jewelry from MYL BERLIN.
Stay beautiful, safe, and happy, Monique
