Another movie inspired post. How predictable I am. After watching Holiday Inn (a christmas favorite) I was in the mood for some good old Fred Astaire, hence me spending the night watching Funny Face. It has everything I could ever want in a movie, some obscure plot revolving around fashion, old bookstores, Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, the 1950's version of Anna Wintour, oh yeah Fred Astaire, singing, Edith Head. FRED ASTAIRE! You get my point. Anyway, I spent the entire movie drooling over Audrey Hepburn's "not fashion-y" outfit. It consisted of a black turtle neck, cigarette pants, and penny loafers, and at some point a simple camel trench. It was so un-frilly and wasn't swaddled in pink bows I surprised myself ( though the frilly and swaddled outfits in the movie were fantastic thanks Edith) I'm craving some of that penny loafer action thats going on.
