Summer Wish List 2017

Here’s what I wish I was wearing this summer: either super-femme long skirts and dresses OR blousy separates that I could wear and sweep about looking rather like a cult leader…

Above: Ahhhhh this is my dream outfit!! From the Carolina Herrera Resort 2018 collection.

Above: Work-perfect I should think! Monse Resort 2018

Above: Even when it’s sunny out I would rather be at the library wearing one of the dresses above by Temperley London (Resort 2018).

Above: Yesssss. Red, dramatic, self-assured. Rosie Assoulin Resort 2018

Above: My favoured work uniform. Add a really dramatic necklace to get my aforementioned cult leader feel. From the Rosetta Getty Resort 2018 collection.

The Closet Feminist Top Pins Feb 2016

Here are the top pins currently on The Closet Feminist–you folks are sure loving the J. Crew Spring collection this month!


Above: J. Crew Spring 2016 here

These super-bold striped palazzo pants from J. Crew are your top pin right now! Love the sailor details and mixing the different width of stripes.

Another nautical number from J. Crew takes up the second spot this month. Love the pop of the turquoise gingham shoes.


Above: Alice + Olivia Spring 2016 here

A folk-y number for Alice + Olivia nabs third place. The colour of the crop top is so bold and balances the lady-like skirt nicely.

So many great things happening in this outfit, but the duster in the fresh blue and white pinstripes takes the cake!

Quite different from the other favoured pins and taking 5th place this month is this beautiful, minimalist Rosetta Getty dress. The bold gold earrings are a nice touch.

Bibliostyle: Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”

You totes knew we’d be doing a Bibliostyle for this, right?

When dinner was over she returned directly to Jane, and Miss BIngley began abusing her as soon as she was out of the room. Her manners were pronounced to be very bad indeed, a mixture of pride and impertinence; she had no conversation, no style, no taste, no beauty. Mrs. Hurst thought the same, and added,

‘She has nothing, in short, to recommend her, but being an excellent walker. I shall never forget her appearance this morning. She really looked almsot wild.’

‘She did, indeed, Louisa. I could hardly keep my countenance. Very nonsensical to come at all! Why must she be scampering about the country, because her sister had a cold? Her hair, so untidy, so blousy!’

‘Yes, and her petticoat; I hope you saw her petticoat, six inches deep in mud, I am absolutely certain; and the gown which had been let down to hide it not doing its office.’

‘Your picture may be very exact, Louisa,’ said BIngley; ‘but this was all lost upon me. I thought Miss Elizabeth Bennet looked remarkably well when she came into the room this morning. Her dirty petticoat quite escaped my notice.’

You observed it, Mr. Darcy, I am sure,’ said Miss BIngley; ‘and I am inclined to think that you would not wish to see your sister make such an exhibition.’

‘Certainly not’

‘To walk three miles, or four miles, or give miles, or whatever it is, above her ancles [sic] in dirt, and alone, quite alone! what could she mean by it? It seems to be to shew an abominable sort of conceited independence, a most country-town indifference to decorum.’

– from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
