The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post Book Dress is something I am so excited to unveil! For quite a few months, I have been working with Jacqueline Firkins (Click here to see her exclusive HeyitsCarlyRae Interview). I first came across her dresses on Instagram. One of my close author friends, Danielle Paige, reposted the dress she made to match her book cover. I admired Jacqueline’s passion for turning a book cover into a dress. I contacted her and Random House to coordinate a book dress for an upcoming title.
Fast forward until now, and ta-da! This dress is absolutely stunning. Not only does it match the book cover, but it also captures Marjorie Post and her fashion style during that time. It is a gorgeous dress, and I’m in awe of how it all came together. Jacqueline is so talented and did a fabulous job. I have never seen anything quite like it, and I have to say it really is my favorite thing I’ve ever done with books.
The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post by Allison Pataki is a fabulous read too.
It tells Marjorie’s life in a way that made me feel I was right there with her. Marjorie Post is genuinely inspiring. I recommend checking this book out if you haven’t already. You can purchase it on Amazon!
Sass Beauty Salon in Florida did an updo that I picked out to go with the dress, and I got the hairpiece from Amazon. Again, it all came together in a way that I could not believe. I decided to break things up and wear my favorite Golden Goose shoes instead of heels. I’m not much of a heel person and figured why not add my spin on it! 😊
