Pinafore Days

Anna Sui dress & slip. Bow headband. Vintage costume breastplate & pearl necklaces. Jessica Kagan Cushman ‘Do You Have Any Idea Who I Am?’ & vintage costume twisted bangles. Hot Sox lace tights. Chanel ballerinas.
What's Cooking, Jenny Archer? The kitchen was the starting place for both Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu spring 2009 RTW collection (aprons) & my day of play (a pinafore). Pinafores are fancy aprons that allow dresses to frolic freely "Over hill, over dale, / Through bush, through briar" (William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream). Victorian girls such as Alice in Wonderland tied one over a frock to keep it fresh - this pinafore dress is trimmed with lace/sparkly wisps & flutters at the shoulders. My accessories would inspire envy among a bevy of singers: a rap superstar necklace (Flavor Flav), a pair of purple tights (Prince) & some bangles (Madonna circa Desperately Seeking Susan).
