Back when I was in high school, I had the brilliant idea of shaving my once Frida Kahlo-thick eyebrows and pencil them in dangerously thin to channel 1930s screen siren Jean Harlow.
We all make mistakes.
While my eyebrows haven’t grown the same since then, I still don’t mind channeling this fellow piscean. So when I found this 1930s wine-hued gown, I was in complete awe. Best of all? It fit like a glove.
For some reason, I felt this is a dress that Jean Harlow would appreciate. It hugs the body to a T, yet its delicate winged sleeves create a dramatic flair made fit for the big screen. And for a 1930s piece, it was in near perfect condition. I have to be super careful with the sleeves, as its fine lace can easily get damage, but it’s still in my closet, waiting for a special occasion. I just hope it still fits!
These days, I’m looking forward to channeling Jean Harlow, couture-wise. The blonde bombshell was a total babe, and extremely funny to boot. Make use of that Netflix account and watch all her screwball comedies. You won’t regret it.
