Fashion Inspiration

12 Jan

I just finished watching an amazing movie entitled “Easy Virtue.” This movie has Jessica Beil, Ben Barnes and Kristin Scott Thomas as the leads. The story is about a headstrong American woman racecar driver with a troubled past who spontaneously marries a wealthy Englishman. He takes her to his childhood home to meet his family where she is shown a cold reception by everyone but his misfit father. The ending is very interesting and it is hilarious to see how her brashness and disregard for English “niceties” throws his scheming mother more and more off her game.

I know I don’t normally do movie reviews however, the reason I loved this movie was because it was so reminiscent of the CoCo Chanel story, but less played. The bright red lipstick, taboo platinum blond hair, wide leg trousers, billowy blouses, and wonderful hats made this movie a classic fashion admirer’s dream. The stylist absolutely took advantage of this being the time Chanel started to come into her own with the men’s wear and jersey knits.

I hope you get a chance to watch it!



Look at that lipstick and scarf!

Stripes, trousers, and open racing jacket, OH MY!

W/ Love and Red Lipstick!!
