I decided to have a little fun with The Daydreamer, so I mixed up this season’s trend for Fifties ladylike chic (and perhaps a smidgen of pin-up!) as seen in the hit series, Mad Men, together with a bit of 2010’s rock chick glamour, so well encapsulated by the modern woman of today.
I always find myself looking at a piece of clothing, whether it’s a dress, a coat or a shoe, and then considering different locations, hair and make-up looks and models that would bring my ideas together to create the perfect story to portray my interpretation of the original piece.
For this post, I really had fun with my thoughts and the pieces in my own wardrobe (and some samples that were kindly sent to me) and then seeing the end result. I hope the photos have captured my thoughts, references and inspirations for readers of The Daydreamer, and if nothing else, brought a smile to your face.
