My fascination with 1950's styles continues with a poodle motif, embellished bows, a jacket emulating a rebel without a cause, and these rust hued cigarette pants, all ready to rock and roll. We did this shoot while away on vacation for the Thanksgiving holiday. It must have been the nostalgia of being out of state and strolling around a quaint town brimming full with history that made me want to get dolled up this way.
This outfit is a myriad of the demure sitting room life of the English bourgeois, the air of the French cafe society, and the spirit of the American youth revolting against any sort of conformity. These past cultures never cease to intrigue me. The idyllic notions of those times reign in my heart in an old fashioned way.
much love, Jamie
