Won’t You Charleston With Me?

Out of hibernation at last, blinking into the sunlight, well into the grey skies anyway.

These long winter months often leave one feeling starved of inspiration (if not of food and drink).

Then, just when you think you can’t take any more glitter, cork popping and bank balance draining along comes ‘The Artist’ and everything is right with the world once more.

I’m absolutely in love with this film and everyone in it, especially Uggie of course and the gorgeous Jean Dujardin and stunning Bérénice Bejo. It makes me want to don some fringe, roll down my stockings, rouge my knees and dance.

Amazing how an almost entirely silent film can provoke such emotion and longing.

Oh, Art Deco. How I crave your clean lines, architectural shapes and mirrored finishes. So stylish, sigh.

I have few pieces from that period as they are few and far between and mostly out of my price range. Luckily for us, fashion comes back time and time again and you will find this look in pieces from 50s homeware, 60s dropped waists and the catwalks this year too.
