“Out of Africa” Inspired

My dear friend sent me a picture of this fab Joseph skirt—she loves it because it’s so “Out of Africa”. With all the gorgeous neutrals this spring, there’s a good chance many of us will be channeling a bit of Meryl Streep’s wardrobe from the film.

  • Very chic and understated! In the early 80’s, ‘camp shirts’ were readily available. Women all ages wore them with everything from skirts to knee length shorts, tucked and untucked, bare leg and simple shoes. My favorite was a camp shirt + matching skirt in a gorgeous tea color, all linen from a favorite store on the Plaza in KC. Everything was their label, but it was all made in Italy and quality. It was a time before the lycra and stretch explosion.

  • Love these colours and look. The Vanessa Seward jacket in your ‘shop’ reminds me of one I had in washed silk from DKNY or Donna Karan. It was more voluminous (1980s) and I wore it to death.

  • This is one of my favorite looks. Timeless. While it’s not the high end that I associate with KiC, I think Madewell’s camp shirts are terrific.

  • Love a camp shirt! And I do not want the skirt too long – or too short

  • Paula….your comments brought back great memories. What was the store on the Plaza in KC (I lived there for 15 years) – it wasn’t Mark Shale, was it?

  • Lisa, it was Jack Henry (mostly men’s with a small women’s department). The Plaza was peak of chic for decades: Swanson’s on the Plaza, Hall’s, Tivol, Harry Starker’s, Pierre Deux, Polo, Superlatives antiques, Kaplan’s Fabrics, The Alameda Plaza Hotel, the architecture, fountains and tennis courts, everyone dressed, before all the brand stores . . . we ‘drove down’ from ‘up north’ for years for long weekends to shop, dine, & play tennis!
