Maybe it was the retro underwear, maybe it was the fact that I’ve been immersed in Mad Men and my course material from History of Narrative Film, but I was in the mood to go a bit retro again with my outfit. I quite like the way it turned out! Somewhere between sensible Peggy Olsen, carefree Jean Seberg and stylish Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker.
Haha, before I googled pictures (check them out on my blog) I had NO idea how literal my translation was. I just mentioned a few names from the top of my head and there you have my outfits: Faye beret and hair on top, Jean striped jersey and Peggy checkered skirt! Sort of awesome in a weird way. But I add my own touch with the dotted tights! I guess this really proves I’m head over heels with the more “functional” or “casual” sixties styles. I mean I love a good Twiggy dress with miniskirts etcetera, but that look feels so overplayed. Peggy isn’t all “hey look at me, I’m so sixties”, she just looks put together and cute! Is it obvious that I LOVE Peggy? And Jean Seberg has a horrible accent in À Bout de Souffle, but DAYUM is she gorgeous and stylish? Such an inspiration. Whenever I see pictures of her, she makes me want to run over to the nearest hairsalon and DEMAND a boy cut. Actually, once upon a time she got me to do it (again, check out my blog for pictures of me with ultra short hair). I’m definitely going back there one day, but not right now. I just love being able to tuck my hair behind my ears and wear it up in a pony tail right now!
And I got around to taking pictures of my new UNMENTIONABLES so check out my blog for those as well!
Have a super nice day, stylish people!!
