Like Louise

30 May

Everyone has their favourite style icon of the silver screen, be it Audrey Hepburn or Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe or Greta Garbo but my personal favourite is Louise Brooks. I love the styles of the ’20s and I think she looked incredible in her silks and pearls. She seemed to be rarely without a long string of pearls draped around her neck and could often be seen adorned with glistening, ornate gems. She was the perfect combination of edgy and elegant.

In my travels around various shopping establishments of the internet, I have noticed a rather bizarre recurrence: pineapples. The more I see them, the more I want them – both on my clothes and in my kitchen. Here are my favourites:

1. Pineapple Print Cotton Tank, Adidas by Stella McCartney. £40.

2. Khaki Pineapple Vest, Dorothy Perkins. £22.

3. Pineapple Denim Hotpants, Topshop. £30.

4. Painted Pineapple Drop Earrings, Accesorize. £5.
