dressed up like a lady: The owls aren't what they seem.

Mar 14, 2011

The owls aren't what they seem.

I really think I should take more style inspiration from Twin Peaks.

I might be saying this because MC came home from playing trumpet at a jazz gig recently looking all dappered up, and I thought we looked very Audrey/Agent Cooper.

 So I grabbed some alternate shoes and did a little reenacting.
 Baby pink cap-sleeve sweater: vintage via the Getup
Plaid pencil skirt: Ripped tag, TJ Maxx find
Lipstick red patent heels: Pleaser
Little tan Italian oxfords: vintage via local antique store

Not a bad point of fashion inspiration, right? I'll see if in the future, I can do better justice to the show's hot mix of prim and sexy. All those pencil skirts, cap-sleeve sweaters, and 80's tight jeans make me want to watch the whole series again. Maybe I should!

We did an epic amount of thrifting this weekend, and I took home a boat load of stuff from all the different movie and TV fashion obsessions I've been nursing lately -- including the sexier works of David Lynch. Hopefully some of it will look as cool on camera as it did in the dressing room at the Salvation Army!
