Fashion Icon : June, 1947

When I'm looking for style inspiration, I never have to stray far from a disk of images given to me after my Nanna June died. It contains scans of hundreds of pre and post-World War 2 photos of Nanna, many of them not seen before by her family. 

This one in particular has taken my fancy, because she looks chic and beautiful in head to toe fur (real, sorry PETA) and her shoes are exactly what I have been looking for this winter. My second favourite shot has Nanna in high waisted palazzo pants, ballet flats and a cashmere turtle-neck. In 1944! And we think we're so fashion forward.

Even the composition and styling of the shot is perfect. Scott Schuman eat your heart out.
