Katharine The Great

Today's outfit puts me in mind of Katharine Hepburn. 
Her minimal, pared-down style was a breath of fresh air in a generation where cleavage, curves and pouts were the norm. Originally her dress sense was considered ungainly and "unfeminine" but in time her unique style became the epitome of chic and eventually Katharine Hepburn was accepted as a worthy fashion icon.

 

My blouse is by Celia Birtwell and the refashioned peg-top linen pants were from a jumble sale.
Everything I'm wearing is vintage or second-hand.
