Inspiration: Swallow prints at Miu Miu, s/s 2010, Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby, Courtney Love in the video for Miss World, Seinfeld's Elaine teaming girly dresses with socks and boy - shoes , Madonna for the crucifix earring.
I had my picture taken recently for a college magazine. I wasn't really certain what to wear so rather than the convoluted, layer-y outfit that I was initially considering, I decided to wear my new dress and pull an 'Elaine'...ie. feminine dress paired with socks and scruffy footwear. The whole thing kinda reminds me of Courtney Love too [Yes, I've jumped aboard that train...Tavi to blame surely...] and is somewhat similar to her look in the Miss World video. It's a bit of a 'little girl' dress - indeed, a style popularised by Love in the 90s.
I wanted to put a picture of a nun into the above collage too. What with the navy blue, prominent collar and crucifix there's something of a 'nunny' vibe at work. Of course though, google images only appear to provide 'sexy nun' costumes when you search 'nun', and that wasn't exactly the look I as going for.
