Images taken from style.com and my folk lover.
The aesthetic bits and pieces that have me salivating this week include:
• Necklaces. Specifically, necklaces that look like your jewellery has become knotted together, and you've just picked up the whole glittering tangle and slung it on. I loved Luella's Spring RTW necklaces, and I have been playing with all of my pearl and rhinestone costume jewellery to try and create variations on this look.
• Headdresses. Oh, I have been looking for a black feather headdress for quite some time. Something like a cross between a Native American princess and something the inimitable Iris Apfel might wear. Sadly, this gorgeous piece by Etsy's Boudoir Queen has been sold.
• Riding breeches. Yes, this is an old look. The high street briefly flirted with the jodhpur look years ago, but I can't get the idea of buying a pair of 1930's riding breeches, and modifying them to fit me, out of my head. I'm a woman possessed - I want to team them with ridiculously tall confectionery-coloured shoes and white tank tops, suspenders and the necklaces I mentioned above. Sigh.
