Style Mashup – Victorian meets Rock ‘n’ Roll

You have to be of a certain age to remember the Laura Ashley craze for all things Victorian which had otherwise sane London gals trotting around the city dressed for milking cows down on the farm ;).  In the early 70s I went for the full long dress complete with lace and pintucks, since then I have periodically rocked this look in a variety of combinations…including real underpinnings from the actual era ;O  Mostly I’ve mixed cotton tops with jeans or Utility pants.  Here I’m giving a nod to both by wearing boyfriend jeans similar here and a khaki color cardigan and boots.

The boots are old Zadig & Voltaire similar here and here  the cardigan, also old, is by American Vintage, similar here

The true Rock ‘n’ Roll vibe comes from channeling Michael Jackson (or maybe Prince) with LOTS of studs on my belts here  I bought this 3x around black number last season but it is re released, and the white one is very old, also from Zadig & Voltaire…but there are lots of alternatives about.  I predict that this look will be all over like a rash this season..;)

I once got into a bit of bother at Airport Security…long before they became really terrorist aware and time consuming.  It must have been in the early 90s when I was returning from a visit with my cousin who used to live in Antibes on the Cote d’azur.  Pauline dropped me at Niece airport to catch the flight back to the UK and I was running a little late…of course my belts set all the metal detectors jangling.  I had the dubious pleasure of being divested of said belts by at least 3 male, otherwise idle security guards..Hmph!  The moral of the story is not to wear lotsa studs when your flying 😉

Its all in the deets…

You can find links to similar jewelry to mine…most is from Thomas Sabo…love the skulls (clearly) The bag is another old favorite from Zadig & Voltaire who repeat the style but not exactly the same, similar here

That’s it for now folks.  Thanks for calling by, Sarah x
