SUR LA PLAGE

When I was fourteen, I played the role of an air-headed, trust-funding French flapper in a musical called The Boyfriend. You may have already heard of it- it's a play that dissects the dynamics of poor little rich girls in the South of France during the Jazz Age. Though our production ended a while ago, I still vividly remember each scene and it's respective theme of costume. One of our songs was titled "Sur La Plage" (on the beach), and it featured the girls in black one-piece bathing suits with bits of pink tulle wrapped around our waists and hair. While this outfit I wore two days ago isn't quite the same, I think it captures the essence of being on "la plage" on a summer day in Nice.









FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Knit hat- secondhand
Sunglasses- 80s Purple Rotunda Clubmaster, www.80spurple.com
Lipstick- LIME CRIME
Oversize striped shirt- Secondhand
Shorts- Actually, my vintage Israeli bathing suit is peeking out underneath a pair of black spandex shorts! I wear these babies everywhere- dancing, exercising, picnicing, and shuffling around my bedroom.
Loafers- Etienne Aigner

Just for kicks, here's a screenshot of me being Nancy 4 years ago (I'm the one in the middle) [don't ask me why the girl to my right is wearing anachronistic sunglasses]:

  2. I really like your top and bag! It is kinda beachy isn't it :)
    You wear a lot of black and live in Las Vegas, don't you boil everyday? I went there in August about 4 years ago and the pavement was so hot it burnt my feet through my converse!
