You know what would be a great addition to my Oldham collection? These beaded boots, available from vintage dealer Marilyn Glass via 1stdibs.com.
I’m in love.
As much as I like Todd, my all-time favorite vintage designer is Ossie Clark, whose heyday was in the 1960s and 1970s. Here’s a 2011 photo of one of my frequently worn Ossie dresses.
Here’s the same dress in 2005.
When I got done browsing the Todd Oldham selection on 1stdibs.com, I spotted this to-die-for Ossie top.
The print by Celia Birtwell is similar to the one in the Ossie top that I wore this Mother’s Day …
… but there’s even more going on in the 1stdibs.com top. No wonder I never know how to describe my personal style. My normal uniform of jeans and a t-shirt says minimalist, but Ossie and Todd scream anything but!
