Inspired By Marvel’s Ladies #1: Peggy CarterPosted: December 8, 2015
I’m doing something a bit different with the capsule this week. For one thing, it’s not really a “capsule” – I do re-wear a few things, but this capsule is connected by a theme rather than by the clothes. And that theme is outfits inspired by the female characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not costume or cosplay (it’s not Halloween, after all), just “inspired”.
It’s random, I know, but there are two reasons behind this. One, I just finished Jessica Jones and holy shit, what an amazing show. I’ll get to it (and Jessica’s style) in a later post. Two, this dress. For a while now I’ve been looking for a solid-colored dress, and finally, I decided it’s easier to get one made, rather than buy it. The design is based on this Modcloth dress, but I picked navy because I think it would be more wearable. As I picked it up from the tailor’s, I realized it wouldn’t look out of place on Agent Carter – both the show and the character herself. Since we had a brief warm spell, I figured I would wear it now. But I also wanted to dress like Jessica Jones, when it gets cold again. And thus a theme is born.
TL;DR: having just finished Jessica Jones + getting a new 1940’s dress that reminds me of Agent Carter = let’s dress like the ladies of MCU for a week!
