My style for the past several years has been based on vintage dresses with cute flats, the occasional ruffle or lace welcome. I am 30 years old now and find myself naturally moving away. My inspirations are deep, muted colors - purple, gray, rose, slate - with a focus on material - cashmere, linen, wool. All with confidently simple lines.
The photographs below of Tori Amos circa 1999 - her To Venus and Back era - exemplify this.
I am not there yet. This exact outfit would not fit well in my life; I would feel costumed. But something in these beautiful (film) photographs feels so right.
Some lyrics from To Venus and Back.
