Today’s outfit is inspired by the lovely Janis Joplin. I had her in mind when I put it together, and I’ve been listening to her Pearl album while I’m writing this post. Oh, I love her husky voice and tortured lyrics. Her clothes were damn gorgeous too.
It occurs to me that I’ve had this top for ages, but I haven’t blogged it yet. My mum bought it for me on one of our random outings, and I just adore it. It’s so floaty and funky. I’m a big fan of the assymetrical hem too. Even though this top is very summery, I’ve been determined to wear it even in the cold months. To make it a bit warmer, I’ve popped a bodysuit underneath.
I am wearing: Blue silk headscarf (thrifted)
– White lace shirt from Yuux
-Black bodysuit from Supre
– Embroidered jeans from Just Jeans
-Red platform shoes (thrifted)
– Assorted silver rings, bangles and beaded bracelets
– Amethyst earrings.
-Silver pocketwatch from Rose and Mr Brown
I have a great love of clothes that move when you do. I like light, floaty, airy bits that flutter in the wind and sweep with every gesticulation. They make me feel like a gypsy queen, or a 1960’s blues icon.
Have an awesome day!
YES! I looove Janis Joplin, and I *love* this outfit! What an amazing top.
Thanks. It was a random gift from my mother, and I truly adore it. It’s starting to get too cold to wear it now though, so I’m trying to think of some new ways to style it for winter.
