So here is the FabFrocks guide to staying 'on trend' and looking like Dick Van Dyke: all at the same time! (All the clothes are from topshop because it's the only biggish store in Norwich where I could find all the DVD-style stuff. Sorry for the TS overload lately)
1) Mary Poppins DVD
Could I look anymore like DVD? The stripey jacket, the stripey shirt, the white trousers...all I needed was a blue bowtie and a straw boater. Damn you topshop for not having all the appropriate DVD attire! Actually individually each piece would be lovely for the coming summer months (fingers crossed) but alltogether, I hate to admit there's a risk of looking a little costumey.....
2) Diagnosis Murder DVDThis is my personal favourite DVD look; a checked shirt under a simple white jacket teamed with jeans. I could wear this to work (I have a very casual job) or to uni safe in the knowledge that I was paying tribute to a living legend without looking at all costumey (which is a bit of a worry with the Mary Poppins DVD outfit, although i'd love to wear it everyday)
3)Night at the Museum DVDThis is a more utilitarian look (as DVD is actually dressed as a security guard) I opted for simple lines and stuck strictly to navy blue to make this look work. (as well as pulling my best tap dancy moves) It's a less popular DVD theme, and sooo unflattering on me that it's not funny, but I thought i'd throw it in because it's a good movie (obviously, as Dick is in it) and it's his latest role.
So there you have it; 3 simple looks that will have you tapdancing all the way down to your nearest highstreet. And when DVD decides to adopt me as his neice, i'll know just what to wear for the occassion!
