Hi again! Told you I won’t be away for too long…. trying to make up for lost times. Today, I have taken inspiration from the silver screen glamour of the 50’s and 60’s … paying homage to all the decades of secretary chic fashion which came from way back in the days. Remember the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Marilyn Munroe? These chicks killed the secretary look time and again in every movie they were in. They were the ones that revealed to us the beauty of pussy-bow blouses, polka dot shirts, tight pencil skirts, brightly coloured chiffon and silk scarfs. Talk about the ultimate uptown girl look, these actresses absolutely rocked it!
Well fast-forward to present times, it’s spring in year 2015, the chill in the weather is gradually easing off and with all the layering and covering up in winter, a girl needs to start bearing a bit of skin for a little fresh air…or no? Anyway I have worn my white shirt with the contemporary ‘skort'(Skirt-shorts). I don’t know if they have existed as long as the pencil skirts but they are everywhere so I guess I’m trying to keep things current.
If you know me well, you’d know you’d hardly catch me without a coat or jacket to drape on my shoulders, partly because I hate my arms and mostly because its a chic thing to do. My Black pussy bow was a chiffon belt I detached from an old dress… got rid of the dress but kept the belt which has become useful once again but in a different light, ha!
I do hope you are all having an amazing week so far. I’ll let you get on with the visuals… I’ll catch up with you in a bit, don’t go away and thanks for stopping by, means everything…. X
Even a dog loves the good ‘ol black shoe… Cheers mate!
