Fly Girl

I've always loved the romanticism, adventure and mystery associated with Amelia Earhart - a strong, pioneering woman bringing elegance to a dangerous, manly field. Who just disappears in the pacific. Classic and still a total mystery. So I pretty much died when Hermes sent leather, fur and goggle clad aviatrices down the runway for Fall 09. This all also explains why I have always strangely coveted a leather scull-cap.

Those flying goggles are so desirable aren't they!! But I would have absolutely no idea how to even begin contemplating what to wear them with...
