TO CARRY THE HEADGEAR OFF

J´adore Edith Sedgwick, or Edie if you want to put it that way. I must confess that I first got aware of her through the Factory Girl film, which starred my then not so fancied a lot celebrity Sienna Miller. My curiousness about Edie and her relationship with Andy Warhol and my embracing of the 60s-70s era´s famous faces made me eager to watch it. And so I did and so I have a many more times after that. It is thanks to Factory Girl that I nowadays am able to stand Sienna.

What I find really interesting about Edie is her sense of style, she was equipped with a pretty face and good bones and that makes it a lot easier to carry off certain apparel, but those headscarves, that crop, and the heavy make up.

The film captivates the time and fashion very well and one of my favourite outfits is when Edie and Andy is walking in a park (Central Park?) and Edie (Sienna)is wearing this fantastic cap. It inspired me so much that I had to buy a similar at Accessorize last year. And today in an attempt to shelter my hair from the rain but mainly covering my roots I wore it for the first time.

Here´s my favourite song from the movie. Also note how I clothed myself in a little sixties inspired dress and white tights, just trying to captivate an era, clueless thoughts.

  1. I knew Edie before Factory Girl, but she's pretty phenomenal. The movie was very well put together in general and I loved Sienna Miller.

    I understand your rage for the critics that blame the fashion industry. In my opinion, I think if they have such a problem with it, they should just choose to live without it. It's a personal choice people make in their lives and if it's not their choice they should just erase it.

  8. Wow, that sounds like a wonderful film to watch. I'll look into it more! I really wish I had Sienna Miller's closet. I think I'd probably be the happiest person in the world...
