Its Monday and I have a post up to go along with it. Yup. Im feeling pretty darn pleased with myself. I WILL be organized this week. Oh yes, yes, I will.
Ok then, now that the self affirmations are finished on to this weeks ‘erm’ vintage look of the week. There was an unusually strange light streaming through the curtains on Saturday morning and after confirming it was in fact the sun and that I wasnt dreaming, I lured the photographer out of bed with the promise of buying him breakfast in exchange for his picture taking skills. It was not in fact as warm as it looked and as soon as we finished shooting, I went back home to put on some more layers. Airy trousers and a backless swimsuit inst ideal for windy 13 degree weather!
Now for my confession, this is not in fact actual vintage, Im kind of cheating. No actually, Im cheating, but, in my defense, I was inspired by a picture I have in one of my many vintage books. It was taken in the early 1920′s and shows 2 women walking the promenade wearing wide legged trousers and tops with a low back. You cant see their faces, as they are walking away from the photographer but you can see everyone else’s faces and they all looked shocked at the sight of women in trousers.
Quite the scandal back then, women in pants. These day’s even the sight of women wearing no pants isn’t a scandal anymore…. (which is just as well, because I may have been guilty of such a thing on one or two occasions, shhhh)
