Inspiring 40s Fashion

I would just die for this Miu Miu collection & for Hailee Steinfeld's glorious locks of hair.  I don't think I ever looked that good at 14.  Then again, she's acting in films with Jeff Bridges.  I was riding my bike around the block & crushing on lil goth boys.  By the way, if you click on Mr. Bridges' name, it links to his website.  I recommend a gander, for he is a wonderful artist & so down to earth. Love "the dude". 







This video reminds me a lot of the hauntingly beautiful Kenneth Anger film Puce Moment.  This one was truly shot in the late 40s & then re-edited in the 60s, hence the more modern soundtrack.  Truly ahead of his time, that guy. 







Doesn't she look a bit like Isabella Rossellini?  I think so. 


Expect my own interpretation of the 40s trend very soon.  I was on the hunt for a pair of high waisted polka dotted palazzo pants.  Found some at H&M!  Score! 


I wish everyone a safe and happy month.  I was in a bad car accident a few hours ago.  My car has been totaled, but I still have my life and loves around me.  I couldn't be happier.  Life, love and polka dots! 


Don't dream it, be it...

  1. I love that Miu Miu film and the quote by Jean Cocteau... so good- reminded me of Yasujir┼Ź Ozu a little bit. Very sorry to hear your were in a car accident and send good wishes your way.

  2. Thanks dear Stefani..

    It's been a very crazy month so far, but I'm taking it in stride.

    Thank you for the warm wishes. I absolutely love that Jean Cocteau quote as well. It screams PASSION. I'm not familiar with Yasujiro Ozu. I'll be sure to look him up. xo
