Here on Earth

Marc by Marc Jacobs jacket. Betsey Johnson skirt. Vintage leather belt. Vintage Amy New York headpiece. Vintage animal & poison (a souvenir from my sister’s trip to Egypt) rings. Chanel ‘Maxi’ bag. Chanel ballerinas.
"Earth! / Fire! / Wind! / Water! / Heart!... / We're the planeteers, / You can be one too! / 'Cause saving our planet is the thing to do, / Looting & polluting is not the way, / Hear what Captain Planet has to say: / The power is yours!" - Phil Collins, Captain Planet
Green was the starting point for my Earth Day ensemble... I sallied forth in a gingham skirt & my fuzzy flower jacket to prettify the world. It wasn't until I was on the street that I realized I'm a study in coordinating separates: this flora headpiece matches the jacket, while my beige bag/shoes are brothers from the same mother (Mlle Coco Chanel). Eco fashion lines are trendy right now, but there's nothing like recycling golden oldies vintage - use the past to save our future.

  2. All your outfits are beautiful but this is definitely one of my favourites! The colours and textures just work so well. What a fabulous headpiece too!
    I really need to get myself some pastel toned gingham.
