A new endeavor: Marianne Faithfull



Isn't she gorgeous!!!! Marianne Faithfull. Mick Jagger's wife, accomplished singer, and one of my style icons. I'd really like to adapt her style!It's exactly what I like- masculinity and femininity in one outfit.
Let's work head to toe. For sunglasses, I have the red risky businesses from FredFlare, but I don't think those will work out. These are from Claire's, the little vines on the sides aren't my favorites but I like these shades so much that I don't care:What I would really like is an oversized blazer. I hope I can find one in the women's section so it's a little big and has that menswear look on me. These are all from Old Navy:Now I need a top. I have a white button-down blouse, it's very simple but I like it. I also have this vintage scarf that I could tie on top. As for the pants, I am really lost. I have to find some trousers, but I have no idea where. Do any of you lovely chaps have a suggestion?
Shoes is also an issue. Blah. I will never be able to find decent shoes. Sigh. Broques would be perfect if I was able to find a pair somewhere....
Ok, so maybe this didn't turn out as productive as I thought. So it's an obstacle, an endeavor! I'll keep working and hunting, and post pictures if I ever find the outfit (which I will!)

Marianne Faithfull, why can't I get no SATISFACTION??? (Haha, get it? That was Tavi's play-on-words. RS fans UNITE!)

Yours truly and tiredly,
Tavi

I agree gorgeous is the PERFECT word to describe her!

those glasses you found are perfect and i think u could even find some vintage frames on ebay similar to hers! i've seen vintage balenciaga frames similar to that go for SO cheap!

p.s. i'm a huge stones fan

they're my numba 1 fav!

She's cute...minus the drug addiction/homeless/anorexia portion of her life though.

Hey, I left a comment but I guess it didn't go through? Anyway, I think you should look for a children's blazer at at thrift store (the proportions will be smaller/more boxy) and try Forever 21 for some pretty nice oxfords (although I've thrifted a nice pair too.) Hope that helps..

jess said...

Secretista said...

I love those glasses!

Nancy said...

Wow, Mick Jagger's wife?! She is (was? >_>) so beautiful!
Isn't menswear a lovely thing? The blazer is an easy find - thrift stores always have little boy blazers. From what I've seen on Fashion Robot, you're quite tiny so sizing shouldn't really be a problem.

ahhh
i just read in your last post that you speak fluent norwegian. that is soooo cool. as i said before i am in denmark right now. danish and norvegian are similar-ish. today i took a ferry boat to sweden and there was a norwegian soap opera on. ahahaha, i wanted to know what was going on. haha it would have helped if you were there. oh and by the way, sorry for the lack of capital letters, i dont know how to make capital letters on this danish keyboard, i know how to use caps lock, but you have to press like 3 keys to turn it on, so its inconvenient.ahhaha

Wendy said...

I think I want a similar haircut!

stupidcupcake said...

Ardesia said...

yeah,your'e right it's just impossible to find decent shoes on this world ;D
I always need hours to find nice shoes in the shops,and THEN when I find the only pair I would buy,they costs too much -_-'
