This is my Susannah Kaysen/Girl, Interrupted outfit. It's because I remember frowm two different movie scenes she's wearing a blue and white striped sweater and a beaded cardigan. So I just pulled those two nuggets of inspiration together and created a simple boring outfit for a perfectly quaint day. I went with my mom to a little town fairly close to where we live to pick up yarn and thick needles for the Rodarte-esque sweater I am attempting to knit, look at junk shops and eat portobello mushroom sandwiches. While at lunch I saw the most amazing dressed old woman, definitely a candidate for Advanced Style. She was wearing this massive grey (faux?) fur coat, black leggings, chunky knit socks and these pink and purple boots that looked like a cross between bowling shoes and Doc Martens. She was so badass! I can't wait to look like that at 75.
