As Autumn is slowly but surely wending its way over here, my thoughts have turned to what I'm going to wear, especially now I have a new haircut. So when I read this description below by Miss Hearse on the wonderful Hiss and Hearse blog, my pulse quickened and my heart beat a little faster at the possibilities...
'I am thinking layers: vintage coats, the perfect black trench (which is a constant search of mine), velvet blazers, and secretary blouses under sweaters, antique brooches, paired with knitted tights and cute cone heels.'
Yes, Miss Hearse, I certainly think you're onto something there.
Then, I had a poke around the archives of the Lyell site (found via Verhext - which is wonderful inspiring in itself) for some inspiration.. And found plenty to get even more excited about..
Oh so pretty blouses..
Fall 05 - (!) Still looks pretty good to me!
I really want a high-waisted wool skirt similar to the one above. I am thinking (hypothetically) about making one, but, but, it probably wouldn't turn out that well. I am so impatient and end up cutting corners. So if anyone spies one on their fashion travels, let me know, eh?
I also favour Rhiannon's blog for a reliable fashion fix whatever the season. She always finds such wonderful vintage things and looks pretty amazing in them for that matter. She pointed me in the direction of lewisnyc - so pretty and elegant. I love it. I'm going to try hard to be thrifty this Autumn and rework some of the things I have in my own wardrobe. Well, a girl can dream, eh?
What will you be sporting this Autumn and what's been inspiring you? It'd be great to discover some more fashion-y blogs and labels so fill me in!
