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 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 😉
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
