I was asked by the blond babe known as Rackk and Ruin what clothes I do like, so I looked through the images I’ve kept for inspiration (i.e., to make me feel sorry for myself.)
These two photos were styled by DisneyRollergirl for Reiss, and they struck me immediately as the way I want to look. Casual, tomboyish, classic with a twist.
This tartan wool biker jacket fits the same criteria. I wasn’t surprised to discover that Susie B actually owns this jacket by J.W. Anderson.
I like this Ruffian look for Fall: Ladylike tomboy with some offbet sexy elements.
I like this look from Sonia Rykeil. It combines my nun fetish with my schoolgirl fetish.
Simple soft black leather. Works with everything. Add a green leather jacket and some python boots, you’re good to go.
Just a great androgynous look I’d like to borrow. Not the hat, duh.
This painted leather jacket is the holy grail if you see it up close. I’m letting my sister paint one of mine in the same colors and hoping it will work out.
JF and Son are really on to something that speaks to me. Simple but dramatic, boyish but sexy.
The shoes make this Louella outfit. Those shoes say, “Fuck you, I have silver winklepickers, bow down to me.”
Finally, just like every sucker, I’d like to imagine myself an Isabel Marant woman, carefree in butch jeans and boots with a casual $3,000 fur coat thrown on as an afterthought.
See? I’m not just about mocking bad fashion. I have my own hopes and dreams of leather, cashmere, Patti Smith, Keith Richard, Catholic schoolgirls, demure nuns and decadent furs.
Suggestions, insults, insincere compliments?
