Outfit: Country Lady



This outfit feels like a slightly updated take on an English country lady. The sorts of clothes the ladies would wear while dining outside and the men go hunt foxes or shoot clay pigeons. It's quite surreal to see a fox hunt here--men in red jackets riding around on horses with packs of hounds howling before them (I always hope the fox gets away). It looks like something out of a movie or scene from the past. People often assume an interest in vintage fashion or styles also indicates a passion for retrograde lifestyles or a desire to return to a supposed idyllic time. But for myself at least my passion for retro aesthetics doesn't extend beyond the image. I'd never want to live in another decade lacking today's technology, medicinal advances, human rights progress, and so on. I'll stick to my favorite classic films and vintage clothes, but I'll enjoy them in this time and place, thanks.

The whole outfit is beautiful. The cut of the jacket is perfect. I like a fitted jacket better than anything puffy. I also am in love with your earrings. They look like Earpins, Which I can no longer seem to find anywhere...

This outfit is really elegant and suits you wonderfully Rebecca. I agree with your point, as I'm also happy to live in the present time. However, there are many people of the world who are still struggling for their human rights, and are not treated equally, despite the apparent progress.

Thanks for reading.

I totally agree! Whenever I hear friends say "oh I wish we could go back to the 50s" I'm like *gasp*. No way! Women were so oppressed and children died of so many diseases and a lot of women died in childbirth. They could also be institutionalized by their husbands. No way! I dig the movies and the fashion, but not the times.

That subtle collar is adorable! I love collars of any kind, but tiny ones can make an outfit look super clean. I like it! I see what you mean about vintage fashion and retro styles. I love vintage fashion, but I completely understand how it may be difficult to dissuade the hard times and horrible events of the period from the fashion.
