I was thinking that Friday might now be dedicated to fashion. Fashion Fridays, I suppose. Agreed? It’s good to get a little off topic now and again…
I was watching Charade the other night with my hubby (he could not believe I’d never seen it-it’s wonderful) and I was just drooling over Audrey Hepburn’s amazing Givenchy wardrobe. All those gorgeous band collar jackets! My favorite though was this white high collar dress with big black belt. STUNNING. She was so effortlessly chic, so… perfect. And so many of the outfits in the movie could very well have been on the racks at Neiman’s today!
It got me thinking about vintage clothing, and so I decided to stop by an old favorite vintage site I had been neglecting recently, Posh Vintage. I found so many amazing pieces I could have posted about 50! Some are quite pricey (70’s Lanvin, natch)- but some are about the same amount you would spend on a dress at J.Crew– except you get to say “Oh this? It’s vintage“, and revel in the admiring, “she’s-so-cool” glances! That alone is worth an little extra coin.
These two long gowns are to die for. Especially the one on the right- too bad it’s already “on hold”. So fantastic for a summer wedding with a stack of cream resin bangles. The gorgeous coral would look delicious with gold accessories and a California tan. :)
I adore this little black linen shift, very Audrey.
The wrap dress to the right would be amazing with silver strappy heels and long silver layered pendants.
This white dress on the left is so quintessential Audrey! *heart*
On the right is one of Posh’s “reconstructed” pieces. They take some of their vintage finds and redo them to look a bit more modern. This dress is just amazing- you’d need a nice tan to pull it off but talk about a show stopper!
To the left, a darling, deep V jersey gown.
To the right- can you not see Angelina rocking this little number? It’s longer, so I would shorten it to knee length and wear some killer Laboutin heels.
Again, the dress on the left I would shorten- and put directly on Natalie Portman!
The jacket to the right is by Ossie Clark and is so amazing I can barely find the words.
Another Audrey/Natalie number that is simple and darling. Turned into a mini, this linen shift would be in style forever.
Hope you enjoyed my little foray into the fashion world- enjoy your weekend!!!
