Bibliostyle: Nancy Mitford’s “Wigs on the Green”

They also helped to design her clothes which were always an endless topic of local conversation as she never could resist appearing at everyday functions in elaborate fancy dress. The black velvet, fur hat and ear-rings of  Russian Grand Duchess, the livid greens and yellows of Bakst ballet dancer, taffeta bustle and Alexandra fringe, Mandarin tunic and trousers, making each its appearance on some most inappropriate occasion aroused each in turn, among tweeded local ladies, a storm of discussion and criticism, the repercussions of which reached Mrs. Lace, by no means displeasing her.

Spring 2017 Trends: Editor’s Picks

After combing through all the Spring 2017 shows in all the major cities, here are my favourite looks from this season. While The Closet Feminist identified a lot of the major trends (belts, purple, witchy, etc), I still find myself attracted to looks that don’t stray too far from my own aesthetic–know what works for you, old habits die hard, etc. Here are my picks for this season!

APRON/SMOCK NECKLINES

With or without some super-femme ruffles, I love the square, apron-esque necklines that were seen this season. They’re often appropriate for work, something a little different, and frame the face nicely.  Also, practically speaking, thick straps = no complicated bras needed.

EVERYTHING I USUALLY LIKE

Regardless of season, I love black dresses with white collars. I love girly dresses juxtaposed with more masculine or structured shoes. Super wearable, practically my uniform.

I also love defined waists, and shamelessly femme silhouettes. I’ve found myself acquiring more simple black dresses (like the Prada one above) that I want to dress up with belts and accessories.

IF IT’S UNDEFINED, LET IT BE LIGHT GREY OR WHITE

I really liked the Spring 2017 collection of Melitta Baumeister, above. I liked the voluminous white and light grey looks, which is super contrary to my love-of-all-things-defined shapes mentioned above.

I wonder though if this collection was especially compelling because this model was so different and looked somewhat like me. I get alienated by the sea of loose beige nothings offered by Elizabeth & James because its all shown on white models. This collection, however simple, caught my eye. Now I want a shiny silver chain necklace to wear with everything and a full sleeve of tattoos!
