Throwback Thursday: We Love Lucille Ball


Posted on by

Welcome to Purple Box Jewelry’s very first Throwback Thursday! For these posts we are taking classic looks and recreating them for you to try out. The best thing about classic looks is that they are timeless. Some may need a little modernization, but all in all, these looks will never go out of style.

This week we are throwing it back to the 50’s. Enter Lucille Ball. Ball is best known for her comedic portrayal as Lucy Ricardo on “I Love Lucy”. Ball was a very physical comedian and yet she managed to keep her fire engine curls and her pearls in place no matter what she was flying over or jumping off of.

In this photo, Ball pairs a basic black and white blazer with simple gold jewelry. Her pop of color comes from her bright nails and her statement lips. The red compliments the black and white and the gold adds some flash without being to over the top. If you are going with bold makeup, your attire should be left simple. The point of going bold is to make one or two subtle things stand out, not to make everything stand out.

Here are some things that you can use to recreate this look for any occasion.

Blazer – New York & Company
Ravish Me Red Lipstick – Revlon
Danke-Shiny Red Nail Polish – OPI
Disc Pierced Earrings – Purple Box Jewelry
Satin Two Tone Stretch Ring – Purple Box Jewelry
