Above: Women's Edwardian Corded Jacket (Black)- Converse by John Varvatos
It instantly brought to mind the song "Stand and Deliver" by Adam and the Ants:
Adam Ant was so flash and dashing back then! And stylish in his Edwardian way of dressing!
Which also used Adam and the Ants song, "Kings of the Wild Frontier", for the scene when Antoinette beds her lover who Sophia Coppola purposely styled after Adam Ant.
As you can guess I want this jacket! I love the Edwardian cut of it and it needs to be in my wardrobe!
Someone buy it for me!

Above: Calligraphy Top by Collective Concepts
Yes, it looks awful on the dress form but, something tells me that it would look stunning on a real, live, human, body.
And these boots:
I love the distressed look of them and the grey colour. They look "lived in" without all the work!
Such cool finds and it makes me wish I were loaded with cash at the moment. I would buy all three!

Remind me so much of the wonderful 1930s/40s Brazilian singer, Carmen Miranda. The original "Lady In The Tutti Frutti Hat".
Just look at them!So bright, so tropical, and with the lovely leaf design to them!
And so pretty on the feet!
I want a pair!!!!!

The last pair I could really see being worn in a 1930's musical!
There are just so many shoes inspired by that time period this fall...as well as clothing.

The above top I can see on an 1920s actress with a long, straight skirt, black tights, and a pair of the shoes I posted in this blog...and maybe a cloche hat.Above: Eden Dress by With Hearts In My Eyes.
I see fringe! The above dress is like a shorter flapper style dress!

So pretty and ruffled.

The above dress just drips with "silent screen siren" appeal.
There are many more as you may have noticed in recent blogs I have made and online.
I am liking this trend since I love old movies.

Above: Unisex Thermochromatic Sheer Jersey T-Shirt by American Apparel
They were called "hypercolor" then and I admit I owned one though I rarely wore it. After about 3 washings it stopped "hypercoloring" and just was a drab grey.
Now they are back and as tacky, and crappy, as ever.
Thank you American Apparel for bringing back such a crappy 80s fad. You can be such a douchebag-like company and this is just another proof of that.
