For this outfit I’m reaching back into the fashion archives and channeling my inner 60’s fashionista. The 60’s was such an influential decade in fashion; from the shift dresses and Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis style elegance of the early 60’s to the micro-minis and angel dresses of the mid 60’s to the androgynous hippie style favoured in the late 60’s. It has never been an ear that I have taken particular interest in, and so it was quite by accident that I ended up looking like a quasi Austin Power’s girl.
I saw this dress in Zara and loved the muted colours and print, but thought there was no way I’d be able to stand wearing it for another six months unless I could find some inventive way to wear it. It seemed such a shame to cover up that cute floral pattern with a coat. And so with a turtleneck sweater and my favourite “Barbie” boots, I was set for a day out and about.
I spent my day having lunch with my “little sister” Shizzy, who is home from San Francisco on summer break. It was lovely to catch up and have some girl time face-to-face instead of trying to find a time that suits us both when she’s half way around the world.
