Feeling Secretarial


My camera is being a bitch and not doing what she was born to do. I guess I dropped her one too many times and she's finally had enough. What I'm trying to say, is that most of the following photo's are a blurry mess. Hopefully its not too off-putting, I doubt anyone comes here to view my photographic skills anyway. So onto the outfit...both my nan and my parents said I looked like a 50's secretary today, and who am I to argue against those with first-hand experience* of the 50's? The top is some kind of tacky 70's/80's polyester t-shirt, which was so cheap I couldn't resist. It's got a sort of fleur de lis/crest pattern on it, the sort you'd normally find on a silk scarf. I picked up on the hints of red in the pattern to accessorize the outfit with various red things...oh, I'm so predictable.






Vintage shoes, vintage top, cardigan (H&M), skirt (Topshop)




*My mother will berate me for saying that, so I should add that my parents were young children in the 50's, therefore it's only really my nan who was speaking from experience
