What I wore: Suffragette

This past week has been a week of insane weather.  It’s been crazy hot and humid, and it’s the first week of March.  Just as I expected the days to begin to get a little crisper and a little cooler, the temperature has soared and I’ve felt like I’m permanently awash with sweat.


In an effort to beat the heat I made a dash to the cinema last weekend.  Our local cinema can always be counted on to be goosepimply-cold, so it’s a very nice place to be during a heatwave.  I hopped along to see Suffragette, which was a splendid film.


I had a bit of trouble deciding what to wear. I wanted something that evoked the spirit of the 1920’s but I also needed to make sure that i would be cool enough during the sweltering walk to the pictures.  I opted for pants to avoid the dreaded chub-rub situation and a pretty camisole to top it off.  I swept my hair up into a back roll, but my fan quickly rumpled it and caused a bevvy of flyaways before I could smooth it out with hairspray.

  • Cream lace camisole from Ladakh
  • Black and white printed trousers from Target
  • Black flatforms from Big W
  • Vintage stirling silver earrings
  • Silver filigree bangle (21st birthday gift from my parents)


My lipstick is one of my all-time favourite shades: Lipstick Queen’s Velvet Rope Collection in Entourage.  Not only is the colour absolutely stunning, but this formula is indestructible.  It lasts through sweltering weather, popcorn, greasy pizza and goodbye kisses without so much as a smudge or a smear.  And it stays feeling velvety and moist on the lips.  It’s magic, basically.

What have you been wearing to beat the heat?


  1. Lovely outfit! That is such a cool pattern on your pants. I find I’m really drawn to patterns and representations in general that are triangle shaped (ditto for honeycomb shaped ones).

    I haven’t seen this movie yet, but very much want to. I get to the theater so infrequently that it will probably be when it hits Netflix (assuming it does).

    Fingers crossed that the intense heat tappers off for you soon.

    • Ooooh, I can’t recommend this film highly enough. Not only was it extremely touching and emotional, and depicted some very important historical events, but the costumes were sensational. I have no doubt that a stylish vintage-lover such as yourself will get a kick out of the costumes.
