So for today’s outfits Brigid and I selected different movies: I chose Roman Holiday (which, btw, I’ve never watched, therefore I’m just basing my outfit on the screenshots that I’ve seen), and Brigid determined to have her ensemble inspired by one of our top favorite movies: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!
Really, the amount of old fashion/vintage movies that we’ve seen is very, very few; so my knowledge of the amount, type, etc. is just as scarce. Therefore I just stuck with what I knew from various vintage fashion blogs (primarily Bramblewood Fashion), the films that Audrey Hepburn stars in being a few of the top. So, Audrey it was and her timeless style to inspire me for today’s challenge 🙂 And, after scanning through my closet a few times, I decided that “Roman Holiday” would suit my stock of attire best. Plus, I find Audrey Hepburn’s style to be very alike to mine: clean, cool, fun & classy.

None of the styles of Audrey Hepburn really suit me in my opinion, and I prefer to take my fashion inspiration from the 50’s from real life clothes (the clothing in the movies are usually too over the top, or too simple for my taste). So, I decided to take inspiration from one of my favorite movies made in the 50’s: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which, if you have not seen it, you really must! I love the plaid and gingham dresses the ladies wear in the movie, but it was too cold to wear a cotton dress alone, so I paired it with a very 40’s/50’s looking sweater (which is my favorite sweater by the way). And of course I had to wear my favorite hat too. Because it’s just not suitin’ to see a girl without her bonnet. 😉
(charlotte) Well, I’m off to go work on a summer swing dress 😉
