Walk The Line


Ever since I have been listening to Johnny Cash on Spotify and obsessing over Reese Witherspoon's outfits.

She turns in such an excellent performance as June Carter, Cash's long-term partner in music and love. I was a little teary at the end when the on-screen text said they died within four months of each other.

If you haven't seen the film, I recommend it, and I won't ruin it by giving away the plot if you don't already know it. Basically it is about the early days of Cash's career, from a childhood tragedy to success in the 60's.

Needless to say, the fashion is amazing! Reese as June gets all the best outfits of course, but an honorary mention goes to Ginnifer Goodwin as Johnny Cash's first wife Vivian.

Back to the main event... I love June's outfits from the 50's and early 60's, plus her stage outfits the best! Lovely fit and flare dresses with gorgeous hair and make up.

The dresses put me in mind of Oasis's New Vintage collection which I have been lusting over since I first got their promotional email about it. They are very very Mad Men/Walk The Line style, basically the sort of thing I love! The Wisteria Lane designs are my favourite though I love the sundresses also.


So if you have £125 lying around it could be yours! Sadly I don't so I will have to hope it gets reduced in the sale. I do think that is a lot of money- probably £30 of that is because it's a special edition. Oasis dresses are generally out of my budget, but I do try and stretch to it when I can because they are so well made and flattering, on me at least.

I think this dress would be perfect for dinner on holiday or to wear to a wedding. What I love about it is that it's inspired by the era but not taking it too far into fancy dress territory.

Resse is amazing in this film!

On Monday I was out shopping and I was trying to describe a lovely dress to someone and my analogy was: it looks like Reese Witherspoon as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line, and I was completely understood:) xx

Do you know how stupid I would look in these dresses?
There isn't nearly enough black on them.
Or studs.
Or leather.
...
I sound so S&M.
