Today's outfit is inspired by none other than Sherlock Holmes. I've always fancied mysteries (Murder, She Wrote and Dragnet were favorite TV shows growing up), and I just finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, so I decided to put together my best sleuthing outfit in the style of a young, female Sherlock Holmes.
To start, I figure a lady detective would want to wear something that doesn't stick out too much, so I opted for neutral blacks and tans. My grandmother's antique magnifying glass necklace will surely help aid the investigation, so it is an obvious accessory. Lastly, a detective needs something to occupy her mind during a long stake-out, and an antique Mark Twain compilation will help pass the time and give the mind a rest from snooping.
