Dr. John Watson: Can we please not do this this time?
Sherlock Holmes: Do what?
Dr. John Watson: You being all mysterious with your – cheekbones. And turning your coat collar up so you look cool
Sherlock Holmes: I don’t do that.
Dr. John Watson: Yeah you do.
Sherlock: It’s got flaps. Ear flaps. It’s an ear hat, John!
If you haven’t guessed by now I am totally obsessed with BBC’s Sherlock series. I’ve finally caught up on all of the episodes and that show is just plain brilliant. I’m not one to watch a lot of TV and keep up with series, but with Sherlock I can’t resist.
I love the show so much that I felt so inspired to create a look based on Sherlock. Obviously I had to find the most legitimate looking deerstalker I could find for a reasonable price, I found this one on eBay for $20 and it came straight from England. Score! I thrifted the black peacoat from Crossroads, Asos gloves thrifted from Crossroads, boots from Crossroads and this dress is an old thrift find. So this look besides the hat is completely thrifted!
I actually love this look and I felt so cool and mysterious riding the subway. I definitely have to wear this look again and again. It sends me right into my mind palace! (see the last image.)
In this look…
Everything except the hat thrifted from Crossroads Trading.
