She's a Femme Fatale

For my first post I think its only right that I write about my current obsession and favourite fashion icon Edie Sedgwick.

I first noticed Edie in a book I have on The Velvet Underground called an Illustrated History of a Walk on the Wild Side (which you should definitely buy because it is amazing) There is just something so captivating about Edie in this picture.

I think with Edie there are two main looks.

The mix of uptown society girl glamour and down town beatnik style. For this look she wears her signature heavy black kohl liner, dazzling chandelier earrings, a stripy top and black opaque tights.

Her second look shows off her delicate beauty. She dresses like an elfin princess in a pale coloured maxi dress and bare feet as seen in Andy Warhol's Lupe. 

I've been searching for a full version of Lupe everywhere. If anyone knows where I can get it on dvd or vhs please tell me (I'm literally dying to see it)

For Halloween I dressed up as Edie...everyone thought I was some glamed up bride of frankenstein which I am totally okay with ;)

I stole my mum's leopard print fur coat for the occasion. You can tell its not mine because its literally two sizes too big on me. I also wore these amazing Edie Sedgwick earrings by Steve Stasco who designed the jewellery for the movie Factory Girl starring Sienna Miller. I adore them 

I used glitter hairspray from a Halloween shop, thinking about wearing it everyday now :P

Thanks for reading my first blog post. Feel free to leave me a comment or just say hello


  1. Agreed, she's a total babe. I love how she managed to make such simple outfits- like the breton t-shirts and black tights- look so insanely perfect. Oh and he earrings in the last picture are amazing <3

  2. I'm very obsessed with Edie as well right now. I actually drew a drawing of her this morning, haha! It came out alright. Anyways, I also wanted to thank you for the comment on a couple of my posts. I'm following your blog now :D
