So, judging from the look books and previews for Spring I've been ogling, pastels are going to be big news this year. I am desperate for a baby blue patent skirt and white shoes, but since it's still raining and chilly in London I'm holding off for a bit - much to my bank account's relief. Pastels will always make me think of Edward Scissorhands, that Tim Burton classic starring Winona Ryder in a fluffy yellow wig and Johnny Depp with no eyebrows and a lot of leather. They were dating at the time...(woah sorry I just lost about 20 minutes of my life on tumblr looking at photos tagged with them. People sure are devastated they broke up TWENTY-ONE YEARS AGO).
Consequently, this week's style dissection is Edward Scissorhands. It really is perfect for S/S 2014 as it features gorgeous bright colours and pastel hues, but with an added darker edge thanks to Edward's leather and black, gothic look.
First off, let's focus on Joyce. Joyce is a gorgeous older lady who takes a pretty big shine to Edward, and uses her feminine wiles (and wide array of sunglasses and earrings) to try and seduce him.
