This week's wardrobe inspired by . . .
I am happy to be back in the season of layers. Each day is basically a question of whether to go with the Swedish street urchin, citified woodland creature, or Parisian fashionaut look, each of which is represented below.
How much do I want the above vest and boots?? Muchly.
I am pretty sure I wore this exact outfit, complete with white sunglasses, in 1992. Still like it.
The silhouette. The touch of dark purple. The shoes.
Every time I wear an outfit like the above I feel like Puck or Robin Hood. That doesn't stop me.
Not represented here (surprisingly) is my current hair inspiration/obsession. My ambition to be as blond as is Medusaly possible remains strong. In fact, given that I spend so much time a) reading Scandinavian fashion blogs, and b) staring at photographs of Kate Lamphear, it's a small miracle that my hair is not completely devoid of color by this point. I consider this platinum drive to be a reverse manifestation of the same psychological phenomenon that led me to dye my hair darker and darker and darker until I achieved the blackest of black just after I defended my dissertation and graduated. In other words, it has something to do with That Which Will Not Be Discussed.
