Catherine’s look this week had a distinctive 1920s feel to it, from the pearls to the little black dress and the Mary Jane shoes.  We asked her about the inspiration behind it…

“I love vintage looks, although not necessarilly vintage clothes.  I love to dress up and I do like that about looks from the past.  Yes, I would love to see people dress up a bit more.  I don’t have a particular era that I love more than any other, although the 1920s and the 1950s are periods I identify with.  Refined and elegant.  This look is very Coco Chanel in Paris during the 1920s. The dress is by Decjuba and the floral corsage is actually a hair accessory that I got from Portmans.  The pearls came from a Kate Sylvester top that had them attached around the neck as part of the top.  I just took them off and attached the hooks together.  My shoes were my wedding shoes and they are by Australian brand Wittner.  I am wearing a scent by Issey Miyake pour homme.  Because you know, French women know it’s okay to wear mens colonge”.
