Styled for Fall

With help from her personal wardrobe stylist, Miss Gene Marshall updates some favorite wardrobe pieces just in time for Fall.

Monolithic Studios' star Gene Marshall
"White Orchid" Gene Marshall
By simply removing the teal chiffon neck scarf, this rust-colored knit sheath from the FAO Schwartz Exclusive "Warmest Wishes" (1998) becomes a versatile yet chic daytime look. Accessories include the fur drape from miniature furrier PD Root, gloves from Ashton Drake, handbag from Integrity, sunglasses from Retros, brooch from Robert Tonner, and hat from The Couture Touch. "Warmest Wishes" was designed by Tim Kennedy, circa 1948.

"Phoenix" Gene Marshall
The sheath from Ashton Drake's "Stormy Weather" (2001) comes out of hiding to reveal a figure hugging, classic style based on a 1950's home sewing pattern. A black grosgrain bow was added to the bodice to accent the contrasting fabric detailing. Accessories include a velveteen pillbox with dramatic feather, brooch, and earrings from The Couture Touch. Cigarette holder is from Mystyna. "Stormy Weather" was designed by Tim Kennedy.

"Symphony in G" Gene Marshall
Every fall wardrobe needs a new suit! A sophisticated jacket with an unusual shaped peplum that mirrors the hemline of the skirt borrowed from Ashton Drake's "Fashion Plot". It's the ultimate restyle of D.A.E. Originals' "Tour d'Argent". The wing-collared dickey and dramatic hat are from The Couture Touch.

"Blue Belle" Gene Marshall
An elegant cocktail ensemble features the black tulle overskirt from "El Morocco" layered over the satin sheath from "Black Ribbon", both from Ashton Drake. The fur stole is from Madame Alexander, jewels from Ashton Drake, and gloves from PD Root. The "diamond" encrusted evening bag and wine suede hat are from The Couture Touch.
