I am doing a post of my favourite outfits of 2012.
I want to add a new style to my clothes.
definitely I chose to wear clothes of a fantasy element.
I didn't realise it until I looked through all my photos.
why is that I asked myself?
how do other people choose their clothes
by era, by the latest fashion, by shape to suit the wearer or out of practicality ?
I 'd love to start a discussion on this .
I even have names for my outfits.
the ensemble can start from a shape, an image , a story, other visual sources .
but when it comes to me its like an obsession to try and produce it.
sometimes it can take months to get the look together
waiting on that one piece to finish it all off.
this is Victorian funeral.
I had the coat a mantle from the 20's
I've had it for a few years . sitting lonely in my wardrobe and then this
summer I bought the hat in London.
the dress underneath I got by coincidence the week I was to wear it.
It had beautiful jet beads. it was from a high street shop. monsoon I think.
I got it at Lucy's.
I love this outfit. it is simple and easy to wear and very dramatic.
this outfit I also love.
it is very difficult to wear. it is lots of uncomfortable layers.
tulle skirt, felt coat, hat with a million pins to keep on.
but I love it.
I call it.
the clown who lost his heart .and then found it.
At the moment I love clothes influenced by carnival performers.
the coat I bought in Brighton.
hat spitafield London from a milliner who made it from scratch.
skirt from my favourite designer Victim.
this outfit I have about 10 years.
it is all high street bought from charity shops.
the skirt is from zara, jacket whistles, head piece I added to but
it has river island tag.
I wore this to the electric picnic this year.
I got my photo taken for a national news paper.
it was such a thrill.
I call this outfit.
wedding bliss .
everyone thought i was getting married in it.
this outfit is nicer in real life .
the beauty of the dress is how it moves.
the hat i bought in an antique shop in London.
i have no name for this outfit.
I think because I'm not completely happy with how i put it together.
so its an unfinished project.
I'm sure I'll find something that will make it complete and then a
name will follow.
I haven't bought clothes for 2 months now.
i want to introduce a new look to my wardrobe.
a cleaner line. men's suits , dramatic bows.
problem is finding these clothes.
