Over the last few months I’ve been totally immersed in movies. Jeff and I got a subscription to Filmstruck and have been gorging ourselves on classic film and pre-code movies. I was raised on Turner Classic Movies thanks to my dad, and I think that’s where I started to really fall in love with fashion and it certainly helped shape my appreciation of vintage. I’m a sucker for every kind of period film, but I particularly like to see the wardrobes of movies made in the 70’s and 80’s portraying the 20’s and 30’s (example: Chinatown, Great Gatsby, Bonnie and Clyde or a particular favorite of mine, the Moderns.). It’s really fun to see the interplay of the two eras for me. It’s definitely an influence that has seeped into my wardrobe as of late and has inspired me to style a lot of old favorites in my closet!
I’m wearing a japanese dress from Re-Edited vintage here with a vintage fox fur stole (get a fabulous faux fur stole here for a cheap thrill), vintage beads and cloisonne bangles, a red beret, a Black Fleece x Thom Browne handbag, and embroidered Prada mary-janes from 2006.
…and yes, that is an engagement ring you see on my hand. I’ve been so excited to share this news with you, Jeff and I are so incredibly thrilled! It’s been a really magical month, I am so excited for everything that is ahead. We have to get started on planning a wedding, oh my gosh! I want to say thank you to some of the really sweet readers who’ve reached out to congratulate us, it means so much to me that some of you have been following for so long and that now I get to share this development with you. You guys are the best! Sending you so much love in 2017 xx
