Granny Space Martians19:04
Just noticed the cross; makes it a bit sinister- reminds me of film noir (teehee)
"Great balls of fire. Don't bother me anymore, and don't call me sugar. "As cliché as the quote is, I couldn't resist but starting with a quote from an era of inspiration for these photos and outfit; the late 1930's and 40's. (However, I'm always mixing decades, so you can probably see a bit of 70's and 80's collaborated...) So when visiting your Grandma's, it seems like the perfect inspiration and location for photos. What's not to love about granny chic? The little visit has made me yearn to play on Granny futurism; pleated plastic skirts, metallic florals and tartan, and fur Loafers (maybe a later post). Anyhow, before I completely ramble on and space off into my little dreamworld of
"Granny Space Martians",
I'll continue with the outfit description.
Now *in one of those soft Granny voices*, you can see the satin, almost kimono top is a bit out of place. Though when I think of Geishas, I always think clean cut outfits; totally complimenting the chicness of the 40's. Then the Flared trousers are a bit 1920's reminiscent, but with the shapes constructed in the whole outfit it creates the 40's vibe (I hope). Then it was time for some sparkle and dazzle. I could never wear an outfit with out a bit of vibrancy in colour. So out came the metallic polo neck shirt! Finally I then added a green necklace to match my green wedges, a camel satchel to match the trousers (and also I even carried the tonal vibe with a camel coat when outside- I was shocked at my willingness to keep to one colour scheme; it's unheard of for me).
Fashion can seem all a bit of a dressing up game to me. Well, it's a bit more than that.
