Granny Chic S/S 10
it seems like the designers want you to raid your grandmothers closet, (and then alter some of it:p)

hairstyles, shoes, make-up, clothes etc are all giving this very chic old lady style.

notice all the hats, scarves and hair accessories

Marc Jacobs (the hair)

Wow. It's like the designers have had a nervous breakdown and raided Goodwill for all the granny clothes that never sell except two days before Halloween.

i'm all for the come-back of the gloves as a dailywear item !
can be seen as sort of arrogant into that recession days ... but isn't it healthy to wear them when the chicken flu (or is that the pork flu ?) is flying into the air ?

I doubt lace gloves would work very well for that purpose. *winks*

Love the Erin Fetherstone. Though I would argue that Anthropologie pioneered this look (and pioneered it well, might I add).



Case in point

Some of the things I tend to always like can be referred to as being "Granny chic" and with the looks that have been popular recently, I'm actually really in the mood for it. I love some of the colors from the Marc Jacobs show.
