Every once in a while a girl just wants to shake up her style with a classic retro vibe. Away from the hustle and bustle of smartphones, tablets and tech, I opted for a simple red lip, a Taurus 650 revolver in a Can Can Concealment Garter Holster and a whole lot of attitude.
For this styled shoot, I decked out from head to toe in one of my favorite designers — Kate Spade New York. This fashionable design house creates unique, funky and often retro-looking staples perfect for any girl who likes classic with a twist. With a Kate Spade Blaire Flamingo Dress ($200) and a simple pair of black kitten heels ($20), I dressed the look up with accessories.
Donning my favorites, the Kate Spade Moon River Earrings in black ($50) and Marietta Cat Eye Sunglasses in gold ($100), I added a wisp of technology in the form of the Scallop Smart Watch ($200). A girl can’t give up all her tech, after all. I finished off the look with a Kate Spade Shea Manor Place Clutch in black with my favorite shade of Urban Decay lipstick, Sheer F-Bomb ($22.50), stowed inside.
That wasn’t all I was packing though. I paired my classic look with a classic firearm — a revolver. In this case, I grabbed the Taurus CIA 650 ($539) and slipped it into a Can Can Concealment Garter Holster ($36.40). This holster fits around the thigh and can attach to a Can Can Concealment Garter Belt ($22) to hold it better in place. For dresses and skirts, the Can Can Concealment Garter proves to be the perfect option and a better alternative to purse carry.
