MONDAY MAGIC ….. ANDROGYNOUS DRESSING …..




Androgynous trends are the name of the game in fashion for 2013/2014 

It's a girl / boy thing !!






From brogues to suits, with a feminine twist














Of course, this is nothing new ….



Katharine Hepburn did it …..



….. as did Marlene Dietrich



….. and, Twiggy in the 60's



….. and, here's a page from the catalogue of my favourite shop, Biba. I bought a very similar jacket from Biba in the mid 60's and I still have it. The very same one was on the Antiques Roadshow and was valued at £600 to £800 !!!!
That shows how old I am !!!!




But, we won't forget our pencil skirts and high heels !!!!

  3. This is how my daughter at UC Berkeley dresses. She has been asked to model for this style magazine but she said no. She is that pretty but she would rather study.

  7. I lifted the peeling black label from a tin of paint when in Biba's shop in the late sixties. The word, 'Dulux' was underneath it.

  8. Hello you - love these pictures - as ever a wonderful little selection. I do associate this style with you; along with pretty vintage lace! I'd love to wear a tie but think it might be a bit much for the school run ;-) however there is a half way house with a nod to mannish style! Lou x

  9. When I saw that photo, I knew it was Kate Hepburn.
    I sure do remember all those styles. Those seams were always
    turning,but that's a real pair of thoroughbred legs. Speaking of legs,
    I am making a Turkey Nov 28th wish you could come.

  13. Hi Jackie,

    Lucky you to have kept it all that time!! I wish I had my 70s clothes still hidden somewhere in my cupboard.....

    Still wearing those high heels too! Don't know about the pencil skirts though. I think it's a bit too tight for me :-)

    Have a lovely new week!

  14. Beautiful pictures! I still have a Biba-Jackett in a closet on the attic - 3 years ago I took it, it was still alright and I liked it - might be auction-ripe too, who knows?

  18. Hello Jackie

    You will look fabulous in this style, Jackie. I could wear some. I never could keep those stocking seams straight. You made a good investment in the Biba jacket
    My best
