I often like to dress like an old lady; pussy bows, long sleeved vintage dresses and demure skirts in loud colours are right up my street. I think that when I hit my golden years, my style will really come into its own. I love the brazen flamboyance of style mavens like Iris Apfel, and the other venerable birds of paradise featured on Advanced Style, which is one of my favourite blogs.
The influence of Alessandro Michelle at Gucci means that Granny Chic is having a bit of a moment, but I’ll be wearing this look long after the trend dissipates. I bought the blouse from Reformation last year (similar here), the skirt is 50s vintage from Etsy, and my shoes are by Joanne Stoker.
