This Sunday I went for a munch with our dear friend Sophie who has
previously guest posted for us with her amazing Ebay finds. Lately things
have turned to shit again in Harriett Land (got made redundant/losing flat/ blah)
but instead of sitting in my room listening to Brian Eno and banging my head against
the wall I decided it would be good to get out of the house and spend some time
prancing around Columbia Road. I don't know where in the world you are reading
this from but its fucking cold in London right now. So I dug out some furs and
started dressing like a 70 year old Manhattan Socialite. Enjoy!
I am wearing
1970s Fox Fur Hat: Charity Shop
Edwardian Blouse: Gift from Sophie
1970s Leather Belt: Charity Shop
1950s Harrods Mink & Goat Skin Fur Coat: Antique Stall in Lewes
1950s Wool Ski Pants: Rokit
Wool Tights: Primark
Suede Heeled Boots: Zara (Via Charity Shop)
1940s Leather Doctors Bag: Bought from Friend
The inside of this coat is so torn up from me aggressively punching my arms into
the sleeves last winter in Berlin in an attempt to shield myself from the cold as quickly
as humanly possible. It looks like the fox on my head crawled of and mauled it.
Sophie bought a little leather 1940s bag from the little vintage stalls just round the
corner from the main flower market. I got a Joan Baez record and some flowers
for my new head dress venture. If you haven't checked out the Lady of the Flowers
tumblr yet fill yourself in!
1940s Tilt Hat: Ebay
1950s Bed Jacket: Ebay
1980s Riding Jacket: Ebay
1960s Belt: Her Grandmothers
1940s Skirt: Ebay
1980s Leather Boots: Her Mothers
Sorry my Outfit posts have been so few of late. Its hard to take elegant pictures of
yourself when you spend most of your free time standing in an east London alleyway
in the pissing rain downing budget gin and screaming WHY DOESN'T ANYONE LOVE ME?!
But I am going to try much harder to share with you our style, lives and adventures
more often, as we have so much exciting stuff in store its a almost a little daunting.
Love you all
