This entire entry probably has to do with sitting around the house too much reading the boyfriend’s S.M Stirling collection, or maybe it’s just Beyonce’s armored glove, but it seems to me that I’m seeing a lot of King Arthur’s influence in fashion lately. Although it hasn’t gone as medieval on us all as it did back in 2006 (remember when Dior apparently went on crusade?), a toned-down version of the look has been popping up all over: tunics with leggings and slouchy boots, heraldic emblems, oversized hoods on nearly anything, chainmail purses and bracelets. That means you can pull off a bit of Camelot, if you like, without looking like a refugee from Ren Faire (as long as you avoid the Monty Python accent).
