Marilyn Monroe, Beverly Hills Baron, 1964

I love this picture of Marilyn. She looks as breezy as a…well summer breeze. I realised I do not own a chambray shirt of my own! I’m looking out. Here are a few things I found around the web.

I never tire of these. The classic breton top. A few of my favourite starlet snaps from the style files.

If you are ever after a real classic breton shirt, check out: i sea stripes. The owner imports them from the Ukraine, the actual shirts that the military use!! They are reasonably priced and I have bought several. I leave them large and oversized, or do a quick and easy stitch job to slim them down. I really, really recommend them for a wardrobe staple.

Sexy vs. Safe

There is a high likelihood that if you are reading this, that you frequent numerous other fashion blogs on a daily basis. I do so also. It is a fantastic phenomenon to be able to ramble through the closets and lives of people from all walks of life, experiences, identities, cultures and attitudes. Despite the vast array of variants, at times there are such striking similarities in the results. It is both fascinating and exciting to observe.

Drawing on this, I was thrilled to turn upon the work of Sarah Hughes in Safe & Sexy, a photographer who traverses the globe snapping men + women in self styled outfits that make them feel safest vs. sexiest. I love that in her project she gets to interview the participants and ask them about what they were thinking when considering their outfits. Different countries emanate different perceptions, needs and considerations when constructing the two vibes. It’s been making my daily essential image perusings from a new angle. Check out a couple and the clip below:
