" Beat Girl "







For as long as I can remember I've been fascinated by the Beat Generation. I'd have to say that most of my fascination is directed to beat style. In my everyday clothing choices there is definitely a trace of beat style. Whether it be in my slouchy hats, 50's style dresses or all that black. One of my favorite beat movies is "Beat Girl" made in 1959. It's not what you'd call Oscar-worthy, but it's lots of fun to watch! Oh yes, and my wonderful costar is my cat Patsy Cline! ;o)

Top: Free People (3 yrs ago)
Skirt: Vintage from the early 1960's
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
