Following a rather successful week of work experience at a well known regional newspaper (published everyday and two by-lines, woohoo!), I'm now taking the week off to relax, recuperate and take up the reins of blogging once more. To this end, I decided to interpret the latent 30's feel to the summer's collections, from Jonathan Saunders to Stella, with my dashing navy palazzo pants (parachute pants?) and a saucy slash of midriff. John Lennon-takes-on-Willie Wonka sunnies were pulled in to add a little futurism into the mix, lest I come over all Brideshead Revisited on you. Although not strictly a 30s fabric, I thought the grey marl tee hangs in a particularly androgynous manner, thus giving it the louche silhouette which epitomizes that era.
Plus I kind of hope today's outfit makes me look a little bit like Maggie Gyllenhaal, in that cool, tomboy-ish way that she has.
