Deauville Dreams

Just can't get Seeberger's Deauville babes (and early 30s resort fashions in general) outta my head, so, on a whim, dashed together a feeble attempt to emulate even one ounce of the chic coolness of these 30s Riviera goddesses. Aww, I was just messin' around!


Trousers: Heyday
Knitted Cap: Greetz from Tiz

Great stuff! I was thinking along the same lines - it's all I'm thinking of, really, in terms of fashion when summer comes - sadly we don't have a summer here. Last night I improvised a skirt from a top, dreaming of heat for today and a "resort" look, but instead of the pretend Riviera, I'm wearing thick tights and knits... Uuuuhh!

um, if this were in black and white you'd be a shoe-in for a Seeberger photo op!

Love it! I could definitely see you sitting by the Riviera sipping a long, tall drink. :)

Love the ensemble! Very French Rivi or Coco Chanel! I was just going to post some pics from my recent fashion show. French Riviera inspired!

Oh wow those look absolutely fabulous on you! I love how you paired the cap from Tiz, I have the blue version of it so I might have to try this...

In no way is this "feeble"! You look quite elegant; actually, this outfit reminds me of Ms Chanel herself!
I have a pair of 1940s white sailor slacks currently languishing in my mending pile, and after revisiting those amazing Deauville scans, I'm inspired to fix 'em up right away!

Oh, goodness! THANKS for your lovely words! I rarely wear trousers anymore, so I really wanted to find a way to work them into a fun outfit. I wasn't sure if the scarf and stripes were too "much." Ah, c'est la vie! Thank you all for stopping by!

Miss Emmi said...

Wow, that is gorgeous! I love this kind of breezy, effortless style, and you've done it so well! I also love how you mixed patterns, I can never make it work but this looks amazing.

One of the most favourite outfits I've ever seen you in - you look good in trousers!

Now all you need is a boardwalk and one of those huge stripy beach umbrellas (and maybe a pair of greyhounds)!

I adore Breton t-shirts and I've wanted a pair of those Heyday trousers for a while. I think I need to just cave a get a pair!
