Posting this during a quick television break from the Prime Minister election debates, which are surprisingly ho hum, and a show on restoring a country house hotel. I am loving the comments on the previous post! More, please! Even if you don't normally comment (that includes my sister & my mom) please do!
Jen the Style Crusader shot this the same cupcake day I shot her in her rah rah skirt. I was wearing the same thing when someone said that my look was very 'Celine' and wasn't I glad that Phoebe is back in charge? I honestly had to stop myself because.. well, this is one of the ways I always dress. Jen mentioned 'moth eaten jumpers' but this one I believe only has a teeny tiny moth hole. It is from the Gap, I think, and I have no idea how old it is, or if it was new or vintage when I got it. Under, I'm wearing an equally old pale pink long sleeved Gap tee shirt, and under that, a one piece lavender thing from American Apparel. My beloved vanilla/celery brogues are by Kate Kanzier and the socks, part of a package of three, in the most wonderful griegey colours were an impulse buy in the men's department of M&S when I was returning a bra that didn't fit right (and come to think of it, I wish I'd worn one that did, for this impromptu shoot: and while I was at it, washed my hair!)
The trousers were a sample sent to me by American Apparel HQ, and when I first saw them, I thought 'uh, middle aged surburban male losing his hair, not my thing.' But I am finding I love them! They're so comfortable, versatile... I'm really into wearing them with pearls, next, and jackets and Margaret Thatcher bow tie blouses. I must have one somewhere in the closet. Maybe these debates are getting thru to me, after all.
Ooh! The Good Wife is on. Gotta go. Sorry this post is so wordy, that's what happens when I'm a hurry: I type fast and don't edit and hey, presto, hit publish.
