Mr. X and Marilyn - Wood Works, GiuliaDesign, Glitter and *elise* @ Swank

Furniture that dates to the 1950s is called mid-century modern and  is organic in form and not real formal.  At this month's Swank, I found a fabulous mid-century furniture set offered by Wood Works Designs, mostly from the Franklin Retro Collection.  The simple lines, the use of textures and colors and the accessories from the 1940s radio to the spiral sun clock make this set a must have. I have paired this furniture with a fab dress by GiuliaDesign called Marilyn.

The Mercury Row Campanelli styled coffee table included with this set is pure retro perfection.  It will be the centerpiece of the room. The aesthetic beauty and curvaceous form of this kidney bean shape table elicits an artistic appeal while maintaining a proportional balance.  I especially like this coffee table next to the hip cube chair; another popular chair style in the 1950s.

I love the classic lines of the sectional couch with its trim button tufted back and new "saddle" shaped arms. It is upholstered in true 1950s style in palomino plastic made by the Bolta-Felx company, known for its durability! The couch is loaded with single his and her poses and even allows you to drink some bubbly!  The couch also has a really sweet selection of cuddle poses...oh la la.  I love all the details on the coffee table including the gourd shaped lamp, marble ashtray and box of cigars... smoke them outside please Mr. X !
To keep in the mid century mode, especially next to the fantastic gold and ebony starburst wall clock, I found the most fantastic retro dress by GiuliaDesign called Marilyn that is also an exclusive at Swank. I love the soft narrow shoulders of this dress and the silver double buttons on the midriff that show off my thin "wasp" waist. The fancy collar adds a dash of drama to this dress.
Marilyn naturally creates a sexy silhouette with its tight sheath skirt and sexy, low cut bodice made of silk shantung making it casually elegant.  This dress is made for all mesh bodies (belleza, maitreya, isis, slink and fit mesh) and comes with a brown, red, purple,pink, grey or blue top and a black skirt. Boots for mesh high feet (maitreya, slink, belleza, fit mesh) are also included along with glasses and a necklace.

As I mentioned, Marilyn comes with a beautiful pearl, diamond and citrine art deco necklace.  This necklace adds elegance to this outfit. To top off the retro look, this dress also comes with the coolest milk colored cat eye glasses studded with aquamarines, Mr. X loves the way the gems match my eyes, so do I.  These accessories really complete the look.  I am also wearing really cool hand jewelry by *elise* love and hate... pretty basic but oh so much fun (notice the wine is in the love hand!) They are made for vista and Maitreya (worn) bento mesh hands. Mr. X the bubbly is open... let's toast the mid century -- it is all the rage!
