Film Styles: Marie Antoinette

 Costume Designer: Milena Canonero (other movies include: The Grand Budapest Hotel, Out of Africa, The Shining and A Clockwork Orange)

Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette is the retelling of the life of the French queen through a more modern lens. While the costumes look 18th century, the use of modern music, bright colors and even the cameo of some high top converse, gives it the perfect mix of historical and modern. While I love the candy-colored extravagance of her early life at Versailles, my favorite part is of Marie at Petit Trianon, the countryside estate given to her by Louis XVI when she was 19. While the picnics still looked like Vogue editorials, the chateau had more of a simplicity with its muted colors and sun-drenched rooms. There, Marie wore more casual dresses while walking the garden, lounging on the lake, or just reading in the grass. Every scene feels like a dream that I can watch over and over again. If you haven't seen it, I would highly suggest giving it a watch and then try telling me you don't want to wear a hoop skirt and bouffant.

warning: picture heavy, but worth it >>

Uncomfortably Numb

Shirt: Target Pants: Marshalls Shoes: Vans 

This outfit was based solely around the fact that I couldn't wear sandals due to the fact I spilled paint on one of my toes and it wouldn't come off even after 3 showers. But it also gave me an excuse to finally wear these cute pink slip on Vans my friend got my for my birthday, uh, 3 months ago (!!). So yay for painting accidents that give me an opportunity to wear cute things sitting neglected in my closet.

Back to Black

Dress and Sandals both from Target  

You know those days where it's 100 degrees out but you still insist on wearing all black? This is the perfect compromise. A t-shirt dress and lace up sandals will keep you cool while still maintaining your moody, emo vibe. Or not.
