There are no rules to using and wearing vintage, apart from maybe not use it head to toe in one hit.You dont want to look like you're in fancy dress. But thats just my opinion, you may want to look 'now' with your individual take. So perhaps you wear your vintage dress with loose messy hair and a pair of favourite rock chick ankle boots with a modern but demure little cardigan over your shoulders.
I grew up watching and admiring Hitchcock movies and his leading ladies naughty elegance. So i thought i would marry the two. So I dressed Hitchcock's ladies wearing some of the pieces I fell in love with from AW 11 season.
So here's my catwalk modelled by Hitchcock's leading ladies......and if I were sending these models walking then this is the tune they're walking to
Presenting Alfred Hitchcock's leading ladies wearing Autumn/Winter 2011....
Eva Marie Saint star of 'North by Northwest'
Looking fabulously casual in Aquascutum layers.
Keeping it ladylike but totally rocked up in eponymous Westwood style - Vivienne Westwood AW 11.
Julie Andrews was Hitchcock's choice for leading lady in 'Torn Curtain'
I can totally see the demure Miss Andrews in this sweet punky princess coat from Paul Costelloe.
These were some of my favourite looks from the AW collections, If I could only buy just one piece then it would be a very tough decision but I think it would have to be the Paul Costelloe coat or even the Mulberry outfit but maybe..... Anyway I'm not going to have to choose - what i shall do is wait for the best of the High St and their interpretation of these pieces and mix them up with some of my favourite vintage pieces to give them a new lease of life. Tweed is gonna be massive this winter so I hope the colourful tweed version is picked up by the High St.
