It's Edie Darling..



Last Saturday I donned a stripey dress, black tights, a faux fur coat, shoulder dusting earrings & became Edie sedgwick. It was my friends 21st, no one knew who I was other than looking like I'd come from the 60s, but I loved it. The make up, the glamour & the attitude, I wish I could dress like that at all times...well in all honesty I could, but lets face it I live in the North, not London, people judge a little more on individuality up here & I can't deal with people looking already, paranoid much!?

Edie was known as being one of Andy Warhol's superstars, she was beautiful, disturbed & intriguing. The It girl of the 60's who dared to cut her hair short, create her own style & experiment with makeup may have been off the rails with a drug addiction, but there's something about her that captivates me. I think I'll be buying Edie Sedgwick: Girl on Fire when I get paid, I'd imagine it to be an interesting read. If you havn't already, I urge you all to watch Factory Girl which is based on the rise & fall of her short life, such a good film.








Don't forget my GIVEAWAY HERE.

Oh & I now have an RSS feed, never really knew what to do with it before.

You look amazing. I love Edie Sedgewick's style. I have moved back north after living in London for 3 years and feel a bit restricted about what I can where here in case people stare. x

@sarah I think I found out about her about then too, I'm just about to watch it now!

@Milly thank you gorgeous! I love the fur coat, kind of want to wear it all the time, but not sure it's me!

@lydia will check that out!

@sundaygirl it's crazy isn't it, I was talking to my friends brother from London & he said how no one stares or passes comments & it's just so much more free to express individuality down there.
