What we wore to work today 30.8.12
Rejoice all that is whimsical! I have embraced the Alice and Wonderland look with a subtle blue print dress I found in a Parisian vintage shop. It’s 70s retro meets Victoriana. I suggest pairing with lace up ankle boots - preferably high heeled and in patent leather to give it a modern twist and a ‘good girl gone bad’ vibe. Fussy is where it’s at so feel free to add a striped cardigan or a checked blazer for clashing prints à la Prade or Miu Miu Winter 2012. For those minimalists among you, opt for a plan cocoon style coat as seen at Jil Sander and a patterned scarf avec will do the job nicely. With an on-trend doctor’s bag (see Louis Vuitton) you can stash enough to meet any eventuality - from ‘drink me’ potions right through to looking glasses….
