I was feeling very British the other evening after work and thought I'd snap a couple quick photos.
I was thinking of what to title this post and realized... blue velvet blazer, black thick-rimmed glasses, pointy toe shoes... Austin Powers, anyone? Thus a line I liked in the movie made its way into the title space of a blog post.
Ha. I am sincerely getting into character-themed dressing, not that I'm necessarily planning it... I've really been into a 70's vibe lately, and I think I just sort of went with that in the ten minutes I have to get dressed in the morning. Really loving velvet right now... and a bit of a Euro rocker going to dinner thing too... current INSPIRATION BOARD coming up shortly.
By the way — do you like the hair? Back to my natural color; I call it "oatmeal".

I love the vintage appeal of these leggings - they remind me a bit of bloomers. I feel like such a lady wearing them! The white blouse has dainty little covered buttons down the front with a stitched collar across a semi-sheer upper. The bust is outlined by the bustier-look of the solid fabric the rest of the way down. Seriously, I felt très-sexy. If red lipstick looked good on me, I would have done myself up with that too!
I'm thinking of wearing this blouse tucked neatly into a slender knee-length pencil skirt, and of course... adding glasses. I get into the mindset of a secretary in a late 40's film noir motion picture movie flick when I pull this top on over my head. Maybe it's the cut to emphasize the bust. Maybe the collar. I'm not certain which, but it's so smooth... like a side-lit detective taking in a long draw of his slim cigarette in a smoky office with an emerald green desk lamp by his side.
