Well, at least they’re nothing extravagant…don’t get me started on my BIG, LIFETIME WISHLIST!
1. Low heeled everyday shoes – with about 2″ heels because can’t really do flatties being short. I’ve seen some with cuban heels which look different and practical.
2. Tweed jacket – preferably vintage or a very traditional style – I like the ones with a built in belt and pockets at the breast and hips.
3. Tan leather bag preferably in the convertible style with both top handles to carry as a tote and a shoulder strap. However, as in a previous post, finding the right tan is extremely difficult. This Mulberry Alexa in Oak is a contender though I was never a fan of Mulberry bags before. Hmmm!
This is the fashion spread (Sunday Express magazine) that inspired me to think tweed:
I just love the 40’s look and the short length jackets with silk blouses and the cute knit. I have always loved the 1940’s style, however, I have to be very careful the shoulders in jackets and coats aren’t too padded as I already have big shoulders.
This fashion spread is, to me, a great example of making vintage look modern enough to wear everyday. Also it owes more than a little to the personal style of one Miss Catherine Middleton, don’t you think? Yeah, the little corgi is too cute!
