Since my return to blogging, I’ve been rather fixated on the idea of “Timeless” in part because I’m tired of chasing trends. What’s going to be the next “It” bag, should I run out and buy those Birkenstocks because everyone has them. What is “me” and what is the fashion hamster wheel?
Well, the quest to define “Timeless” style cannot be done without researching the past. Looking through old images of some of the most iconic women of the past century, it’s really amazing what can actually be worn today without looking like a costume. Certain silhouettes and color pallets appear decade after decade. It’s beyond my own personal tastes and what I’ve noticed in my own life, but what works for others as well. The truth is, we’ve only been publicly documenting our own wardrobes for the last decade or so, so indeed much of the historical images will be of famous people. Still… it’s truly inspiring to see what still resonates.
I love Judy Garland’s dress here.. also her hair and makeup.. but also… LOOK AT BABY LIZA! Those eyes.
