INSPIRED BY: ROMEO + JULIET










MONTAGUES IN THE HOUSE!  

Sorry, this outfit really got under my skin.  I tried to channel some male-teenage-angst for the photos, I wanted my face to clearly portray thoughts like, "Oh man I love a girl but she's from my enemy's family and now I have to die", but actually I just realised that it's really fun to dress like a boy.  At first I was going to try and recreate some of Juliet's outfits from Baz Luhrmann's 1996 film - navy dress, knee socks, gloves and beret, but then I saw this hawaiian shirt hanging up in Jeremy's side of the wardrobe and got really excited about being a Montague.  Especially when all it takes to be one is said shirt, a white vest, these Mango trousers, white socks, dog tags, and my new Dr Martens originals.  I love these shoes.  So much.  They're so comfortable and BIG.  They are a SIZEABLE shoe, they also come with yellow laces to swap in, I will definitely be doing that at some point.  They're just perfect to wear when you're being torn apart by hatred for some other family in the neighbourhood.  

I've mixed in some photos that I took on our trip to Venice Beach earlier this year, as there are no palm trees in London - weird, right?  Although most of Romeo + Juliet was shot in Mexico City and Veracruz I feel like Venice could be it's spiritual home...maybe...whatever, I wanted some blue sky.  YOU CAN AT LEAST GIVE THIS POOR TORTURED TEEN THAT.
