Cotton Candy Circus

Ralph Lauren jacket. Vintage belt, rings & Maggi dress. Betsey Johnson pin. Chanel shoes.
"I know a girl who's soft & sweet / She's so fine, she can't be beat / Got everything that I desire / Sets the summer sun on fire / I want Candy, I want Candy / Go to see her with her hair hung down / Ain't no finer girl in town / Candy's just what the doctor ordered" - The Strangeloves, I Want Candy
Happy Halloween! Clothes or candy? I choose clothing every time - it never goes stale & sometimes becomes better with age... I've had my classic navy sport coat forever but am newly in love with it after admiring my friend wear hers over both a floral romper & sweater with leggings. It's part of every prep schoolboys' closet & mine because it's versatile as a black tuxedo jacket & especially suitable for casual excursions. Vintage is a prime example of a time fighter: this strawberry shortcake gingham frock becomes punky paired with a nude grommet belt (1950s & 1980s respectively).
