Summer days are meant to bask in the sun, lost in conversation over an award-winning glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, I’ve found myself on-location at Silver Oak Cellars strolling through acres of vineyards, with AllVino in mind. As you may know United States is currently the largest wine market in the world, with women producing a greater deal of the country’s wine. For decades women have been creating exceptional wines; so there is no wonder when Allvino’s COO, Haley Hoppe, approached me to write on the topic of “Women of Wine” for their Grand Opening, I couldn’t resist.
Its only right to model an ensemble that pays tribute to one of the funniest and well-known wine-making moments in classic television history, “Lucy’s Italian Movie,” filmed in 1956 during I Love Lucy’s European tour. Fans of the sitcom are familiar with Lucy’s desperate attempts to be in show business, and in this episode she is vying for a role in the Italian film, “Bitter Grapes.” Lucy decides to soak up the local color and accidentally lands a job as a grape stomper. A necessity for such an inspired vintage style is a lightweight, off the shoulder peasant corset design by Corset Story. Laces made of soft, satin ribbons which assist in a natural body contour up two inches, provides a flirty and jovial appearance. Paired with vintage accessories that Lucy herself would approve of from a full circle A-Line skirt, patent belt and matching pumps to just the right amount of sparkle with rhinestone earrings completes such an ensemble.
