Outfit post: Annie Hall double


What are you looking at: Basically, I was very tired and in a rush. I had to face Portobello road on a Saturday. I was very tired and the idea of fighting off idiot-tourists didn't seem very appealing. But I had to do it. Did I mentioned I was very tired? Yeah... So, I guess, subconsciously, I decided that if I wear what I like and if it happens to be sufficiently bright and puzzling, the above-mentioned tourists will jump off automatically (or maybe they just wouldn't even dare coming close) and I would manage to keep my cool. It kind of worked. Or maybe I was just too busy trying to be cool.

What I was inspired by: Annie Hall, obviously. 1970s. Old eccentric gentleman in yellow corduroy trousers and green bow ties. Decent English weather, hence the cut-offs. Notting Hill inhabiting blonde girls. I guess they still like this type of shorts. Think Sienna Miller.








My company was charming. Wasn't it?


I was wearing:

Jacket- Zara
Shorts- Levi's
Shirt- Maison Scotch
Brooch- Sphinx, vintage
Shoes- Stubbs and Wootton
Bag- Kenzo, vintage
Hat- Borsalino, vintage

  12. This post reminds me of one i did in the spring, where i was dreading all the tourists on broadway and getting seriously annoyed while having to run errands. Thats the drawback of a big city i guess. Just cuz you have s!#t to do doesnt mean the tourist are gonna move out of the way! LOL! Anyway, Love the overall vibe of this outfit;)

  13. The "old eccentric gentleman" look suits you perfectly, you look so pretty but so classy/gentleman like at the same time! Love how you went all the way w/ the hat, plaid top & coat, & loafers. At least you could get shots w/out the tourists in them : )

  34. I adore the way you organise outfit posts. The thing that really appeals to me about fashion is not the frivolous, fast paced and easily disposable fashion but the clothes that tell a story. Completely getting the Annie Hall vibe. Amazing.
