Hitchcock: The Birds

black fedora

I found this dress a couple of years ago and the print on it sold me.  Now nicknamed “The Birds,” I usually wear it layered under jackets, coats or cardis.  

black wool coat
white leather bag
black wool cocoon coat
black suede ankle boots
underground blitz boots
maxi dress

printed maxi dress

Coat:H&M. Try Topshop Unique or T by Alexander Wang (on sale). Dress: Vintage. Best versions are from Free People.  Boots: Underground Originals ‘Blitz boots.’ Try Michael Kors or F-Troupe. Hat: H&M. Bag: Kurt Geiger (love the pony hair version).
You know what? Out of all the coats you’ve seen me in I didn’t have a plain single breasted one till I saw this on sale a few weeks ago.  Didn’t think the whole ovoid/sloped shoulder thing would work for me but this one’s good enough.  
You can see the red versions of these black suede winkle pickers here.  As you can tell I love ’em.  Pointy flat and rock and roll – perfect.

    Excellent mix-n-matching: love that these birds are actually quite eerie like the film instead of your typical cute-teadress fluttery bunch…

      Thank you I think when anyone flings on a floor length dress it does change the way you look to a bit more dressy.

  9. Sasha says:

    The print on your dress is definitely eye-catching. It’s brilliant, especially the way you’ve styled it!
