What I Wore — A Modern Take On Porcelain Prints
This morning, I filmed a live segment for Telemundo 47’s Acceso Total show, which I’ll recap for you very soon, and I chose this long-sleeved ASOS midi dress for my TV appearance. The blue-and-white color scheme — along with the floral motifs, bird designs, and Arabic-inspired geometric shapes within the pattern — conjure up visions of the porcelain plates, vases, and tea cups that were first mass produced in the city of Jingdezhen in China during the 14th century and which were later replicated by Italian, French, and Spanish manufacturers. The print is intrinsically classic, but the body-conscious fit of the dress and the foldover, off-the-shoulder neckline make it feel modern and even sexy.
Because the porcelain print dress makes such an impact, I kept the rest of the look relatively simple, opting for a pair of blue suede pointy-toes Mary-Jane pumps from Pour La Victoire, featuring yellow gold piping; a pair of drop earrings from Amrita Singh featuring three faceted, teardrop-shaped, cobalt blue stone; and a fun mix of rings: an oval-shaped Amrita Singh ring with a domed and etched blue resin stone resembling a scarab, which I slid onto my the left index finger; and, on my right hand, an Amrita Singh statement ring with a Victorian skeleton key motif that I placed on my middle finger so that it would extend horizontally from the center of my index finger to the center of my ring finger, and three Nissa Jewelry midi rings (two featuring V-shaped notches and stacked on my index finger and one a slim wavy number, which I placed on my ring finger).
To keep the look refined and classic, I kept the makeup simple, creating a gilded eye and a creamy red lip.
Porcelain prints are sophisticated and artful, so I hope this inspires you to play with them in your own unique way!
