7 Things I Want Right Now.
The Great Gatsby book clutch by Kate Spade —The perfect cocktail conversation piece. It’s a little demure and a little goofy, perfect for those of us with a light-hearted approach to fashion. 
"N" earring — Though it’s a single earring, I’m dying to pin this on a blazer lapel or turtle neck like its 1961.
Wool fedora — The Northeast has cold winters, and one thing my mom and grandma always said was, “keep your head warm and you won’t get sick,” and I stick by the advice as a great excuse to buy a timeless winter hat. 
Leopard print pencil skirt — Though you could style this skirt a million ways, I stray from the Dirty Dancing approach, and would pair this with a black turtle neck and blazer or a cable knit sweater and knee-high boots. 
Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil —I have been reading endless reviews about how UTTERLY AMAZING this hair product is. One lovely lady I know, Lindsay of Belle Belle Beauty Blog, shares the same hair texture that I have— fine, prone to oiliness, and she swears by it.
Fringe suede hobo bag — The 70s are revived in this slouchy, burnt-toast suede bag by Cynthia Vincent. I would wear this with super basics to let the bag say it all. All you need are jeans, a tee, loafers, and sunglasses.
Vert drop earrings — This photo of Angelina Jolie has inspired me to find some similar earrings. The way they fall against her brunette hair and fair skin is so glamorous, right?

Fashionable Films— A Series.

     

Films are such a wonderful way to eject yourself into a lifestyle, a time period, or character. This series is my ode to the beauty and mystery behind stylish females from decades of story lines and fashion statements.

Angelina Jolie & Johnny Depp are quite the pair in this cat-and-mouse drama, which took place mostly in Venice (what a backdrop!). Angelina’s character Elise dresses in feminine fabrics, elaborate jewelry, and classic lines. For about a week after the film I dressed exclusively in romantic up-dos, art deco jewels, black turtlenecks, and red lipstick. Check back for more on this series of Fashionable Films.

Angelina Jolie’s style has transformed from tough-chic to glamour-puss in the past 5 years or so and I have to say she has never looked more beautiful. I love the way styles have been embracing femininity in dress. Women are most beautiful, in my opinion, when they embrace their inner old Hollywood goddess.

“I’m happy being myself, which I’ve never been before. I always hid in other people, or tried to find myself through the characters, or live out their lives, but I didn’t have those things in mine.”

And now, she is one of the most glamorous women of our time.
