Trenchtown Rock

Nanette Lepore trench coat. Elizabeth Gillett flower pin (in hair). Chanel rhinestone earrings. Vintage costume South Sea pearl necklace. Les Néréides bracelet (a souvenir from my trip to Paris). Vintage stone ring. Nicole Miller lace tights. Chanel ‘2.55’ bag (on door). Miu Miu shoes.
Luckily this taffeta trench coat (complete with carved circle buttons & bell sleeves) leads a double life as a fetching frock - I'm wearing little more than a pair of lace tights/jeweled shoes underneath. My coat is light enough to withstand April showers, but these yellow accessories repel rain: a fabric flower secures my side-braid (all hail Alexander Wang & Miu Miu spring 2010 RTW) & an elongated pearl necklace cascades like rays of sunshine.
"I can no other answer make, but, thanks, & thanks" (William Shakespeare) - a handful of kisses to these lovelies... Maggie at Rocker Repro runs a fabulous fashion blog about rocker chick clothing; recently she featured me in Scene Style as a contemporary example of 1920's noir style. Also Be in Style's Carnival of Shopping (a mecca of beauty/fashion trends) gave me a shout-out in their latest blogger merry-go-round.
