Considering this is a photo of a young Caroline Herrera, this probably wasn't shot near Birmingham. But it resembles it so much, I'm going to pretend it was shot here. Then I'm going to try and recreate it. But not yet.

Ah, I love documenting movies for their wardrobe.
Who cares if the photos aren't as sharp and it takes forever?
Charlotte Gainsbourg in 'I Do' (or 'Prête-moi Ta Main') is a study in French-Girl-Crush-Perfection.
A worn in, strategically cut-up American shirt.
What could improve this look?
Oh I don't know,
how about a leather belt
clearly made in Texas?
So American yet so not at the same time.
But wait - there's more:
burgundy over-the-knee socks!
Skinny, little Charlotte, you are killing me!
Her delicate rolled up blouse is so effortless.
And her scruffy side swept hair is a dream.
She makes me want to wear jeans.
It looks simple enough.
Cap-sleeved t-shirt, wide belt and jeans.
Then she turns around and all of a sudden:
A chain-linked detail on the sleeve!
Best plot twist ever.
But this is the look that keeps on giving.
The night ends and she throws
on a comfy but not slobby sweater.
Jeans, black suede boots and a slouchy bag.
And a perfectly well-constructed coat.
So lovely. You know it fits likes a glove and was probably hand-sewn by soft hands
This white dress drove me crazy.
So subtle yet like everything else French,
But not too sexy.
I know military coats have been done but I want this.
I love when movie characters recycle their wardrobe throughout the course of a film.
It makes everything a bit more believable.
Except, I will never believe this one. . .
. . . would date this guy:
But let's get back to this coat.
Even the detail of the sleeve made me swoon.

I want Ellen Von Unwerth to shoot my girlfriend-getaway.
And make it look like 1992.
I can't decide who I would want to play more in this dream scenario, Christy or Linda?

We did it!
We made it to Spring!
Break out the floral headpieces
and frothy dresses.
And the blooms!
The glorious blooms!
I just want to wear them all.
And browse Spring catalogues.
And walk through parks with Marc Jacobs.
And it's time to start wishing I were blonde.
March is my little sister's Birthday Month.
(She's the charmer on the left and I'm reading the age-inappropriate magazine on the right.)
And there are two things you need to know about her:
She's a Rock Star.
And she's a World Champion Athlete.
Like THE World. Planet Earth. El Mundo.
And she's my favorite.
