Tuxedo Look for Less: Channeling Kourtney Kardashian Channeling Marlene Dietrich

I’m definitely a girly girl.  I don’t play sports, I don’t like to get dirty, and I love a fancy dress.  However, I’ve been taking a lot more fashion risks lately and I’ve never been happier.  Looking back on my life, I’ve realized that every time I’ve played it safe with fashion I’ve always regretted it.  That’s why I’ve been turning to fashion rebels for inspiration.

As far as Old Hollywood style rebels go, you can’t get any better than Marlene Dietrich.  She is the Goddess of Menswear Fashion Glamour.  So when I saw photos recently of Kris Jenner’s Gatsby Themed Birthday party, I was so excited that Kourtney Kardashian channeled Ms. Dietrich and went with a sexy suit.

Don’t get me wrong, the other Kardashians looked stunning in their sparkly evening gowns (say what you want about the Kardashians, but the ladies know how to do luxury).  But Kourtney’s look, as simple as it was, was such a showstopper for me! I love how Kourtney tales risks with fashion.  When her family does a “theme”, she joins in but always does her own twist.

I went on a quest to recreate her look for the holiday season.  I wanted it to be affordable, and with my body type it was a challenge (blazers and boobs can be best friends or mortal frenemies).  I ended up ordering the pants and the blazer from two different brands.  I was pleasantly surprised that the fabrics went so well together.

Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape

Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Continuing my tradition of fashion designer inspired Holiday Tablescapes (see my Kate Spade Halloween, and my Valentino Thanksgiving), I needed big inspiration for a big holiday.  After seeing this Chanel N°5 display at Macy’s I knew that the legendary brand was perfect for a legendary holiday like Christmas.

Here’s how I got the look for this Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape:

I wanted to focus on a vintage, Coco Chanel look.  I used a burlap table runner and a tweed looking ribbon to evoke the feeling of a classic, timeless Chanel suit.

I found the tabletop dress form at Wayfair and added some pearl strands and a black bow with ribbon from Jo Ann Fabrics.  For my Chanel perfume vase, I found a rectangular vase at Michael’s and made my own label.  Instead of N°5 I used N°12 to symbolize the 12 days of Christmas.

Finding red roses was harder than I thought this time of year, but after trying several stores, I found them at my local Jo Ann fabrics, and I bought all they had left.

I found clear plastic Christmas tree ornaments at Jo Ann Fabrics, and cut out gold glitter Cs to make a Chanel symbol.  I glued them on to be sure they stayed put.  The shape of these ornaments remind me of perfume bottles!

I filled tall vases with pearl Christmas balls from Michael’s, and scattered a few more over the table.  After all, it’s a Chanel table, you can’t have too many pearls.

The Eiffel Tower is actually a jewelry holder I stumbled upon at Michaels, and I had a coupon so I got it half price!  I added some fairy lights that I had from my Summer Nights tablescape.  Actually, my boyfriend, PET, came up with the idea of adding the lights.  Who says men can’t be useful when decorating.

I finished the look with some pine garland from last years Christmas table.

As much as this is a tribute to Christmas and Chanel, I also feel like this is a tribute to how beautiful, strong and resilient Paris is.  After all they’ve been through, they deserve some Holiday Cheer!

Old Hollywood Glamour Holiday Makeup Look

Old Hollywood Glamour Holiday Makeup Look - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

As much as I love Christmas, and as excited as I get for the most wonderful time of the year, I refuse to celebrate it before Thanksgiving.  Christmas music and made-for-tv holiday movies have been on repeat for months now.  However, now that it’s officially December, I am fully embracing holiday cheer.  This weekend I’ll probably start watching my favorite Christmas movies.  There are so many that I love, and a few I need to watch for the first time this year. My absolute favorite has to be White Christmas.   It’s the ultimate in Starlet Christmas Glamour.  What could be more fabulous than a movie about showgirls and crooners putting together a Christmas show in Vermont.  So in honor of this classic film, I decided to do an Old Hollywood Glamour inspired Holiday Makeup Look.  It’s perfect for Christmas parties, Holiday Events, and, if you’re an Everyday Starlet, any day of the week!

DIY Embellished Boyfriend Jeans… the Easiest DIY Ever!

With the Holiday Season upon us, sparkle is everywhere!  As a Starlet, I could not be happier!  I would add sparkle to just about anything.  So I was excited to see it even showing up on denim.

I’ve been seeing embellished boyfriend jeans popping up in fashion magazines.  They’re a great holiday option for a night out or a holiday party where you want to be casual yet still festive.  However, embellished denim can be expensive.

I’ve come up with the absolute easiest DIY ever.  I took some brooches (also a big trend right now) and pinned them on my boyfriend jeans.  This way you can control where you want the embellishment, and you can change up the same jeans to look brand new every night of the week (but don’t forget to do laundry eventually).

You can get this look with any brooches, just make sure they are secure so you don’t loose them, or worse, stab yourself.  Check your favorite stores for brooches, or find some vintage ones on Etsy.
