OOTD- Mixing Eras

2.02.2014

Hey everyone,

I wore this outfit to the cinema last week, as it was lashing rain and the wind was strong enough to blow the house down. Probably not the best idea to wear a hat, but hey, it stayed firmly on my head! The hat is very 1920's inspired, don't you think? However the gold hoops and red lipstick scream 1950's. I think that is what's so great about fashion- we're constantly taking ideas from the past and changing them up a bit. Fashion is always changing but you can see influences from the past in everything you wear today. Fingers crossed the weather picks up soon, I have a strange urge to wear a skirt, and its been weeks since I last have!



Boots- KG by Kurt Geiger, thrifted [for €3!]
Jeans- Penneys/Primark
Coat- Penneys/Primark
Hat- Dunnes Stores
Earrings- River Island
Bag- local boutique
Sweater [underneath]- New Look

Do you like taking inspiration from the past?
