What We Wear Wednesday: The Virgin Suicides

Doctor: "What are you doing here, honey? You're not even old enough to know how bad life gets."
Cecilia:"Obviously, Doctor, you've never been a 13-year-old girl."

 Shirt: H&M - Belt: Carrefour - Shorts: New Look - Sandals: Zara - Necklace: forgotten

"The virgin suicides" aka awkwardly posing in a forest in what seems to be my night gown. This movie by Sofia Coppola is one of my all-time favorites. It also has a really nice soundtrack by Air! If you have never seen it, really check it out! I must admit I haven't read the book yet. I'll put it on my list.

I was cleaning out my closet (literally) and (re)discovered this shirt. I almost put it with the pile I was going to bring to the clothing container, but a little voice said I should put it on first. It immediately made me think of the beautiful Lisbon sisters and their tragic story. So I figured I'd do a mini photo shoot, Virgin Suicides style. Any opportunity to be Kirsten Dunst is a good one.

I'm pretty happy with the results. I've had these images in my head and I reproduced them pretty well I think. And I've had fun making them, although running around in a forest in short shorts and sandals isn't the best idea one can have. And that suitcase was damn heavy to be carrying. Sorry for all the whining. (Not really.)

Outfit! The shirt is really old. No I'm exaggerating, it's a little more than 2 years old (I'm a date freak). I used to combine it with jeggings, but since Belgium transformed into some tropical island these days, that was totally out of the question. Short shorts it is! I thought the shirt was a tad too short to wear it without shorts underneath. It's not that I'm like THAT confident. The sandals are one of my two items I bought in the sales. Yeah, only two items! That's just plain sad, BUT the fact that these sandals are really pretty, sure makes up for it. And they're leopard. Leopuuuuurrrrrd.

The necklace is really old as well. And this time I'm not even exaggerating. I can't even remember where I once bought it. It was a store where I usually don't shop. I've worn this necklace A LOT, back in the days. It's not something I'd wear again immediately, but I thought it fitted the scene perfectly. It's one of those items I will never throw away.

I'm warning you, it's going to be a picture overload.. Please do tell me what you think!


Thank you!
