50s-60s art: Jack Vettriano

I love these paintings by Scottish Artist Jack Vettriano. They truly take you back to a different time. A little bit like Mad Men perhaps? He makes you want to take part in the subject’s pastimes and dress the part. The exhibit, Days of Wine and Roses, is being displayed in London until October 31st.

Trench coat

Bonus post today! I entered this contest on Weardrobe that required you to show how you style your trench. In my post I referenced the fact that I love how a trench can really pull a simple outfit together. So I wore an outfit that I would wear to run errands to make the point that even in this simple outfit the trench can work wonders. I also threw on the bandanna headband and realized I looked a little 50s housewife-ish. Go here and click on the heart in the corner of my photo to vote. Thanks!
