This week, the objects of my affection are:
• Latex stockings. Not those tawdry black and red things, that make me feel as though I should be named DominatrixX. I mean stockings in unexpected colours, like pale blue, or white. Or a nymphy forest green. I think they'd be amazing with a silk pleated skirt, like this one, oxfords, and a thin cotton tank. Or with an antique silk teddy worn as a playsuit.
• 40s and 50s eyeglasses. Worn in the picture above by a beautiful Ms Meredith. Honestly, I think I've wanted to wear horn rim glasses even when I was a little girl with perfect vision. This was back in the days when I read Babysitters' Club books and probably thought it would look really cool. And now here I am again. The Babysitters' Club has a lot to answer for, sartorially speaking.
• Corsages. Clearly. I love wearing jewellery on my wrists, but wearing huge stacks of bangles really isn't comfortable for me for long stretches of time. I think that making corsages and wearing them might be an answer to this.
• Jean Harlow. Smoky eyes, penciled eyebrows ... sigh. She makes me want to bleach my hair white and wear silver lame all day long.
