Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona

The first time I saw this movie I was floored by Penelope Cruz's character. I also had to rewatch it just for the outfit inspiration. I love everything about her style: the loose, messy romantic hair, the all white outfits, and her fearless temper. It makes me daydream about a riverside bike ride in sandals, a slip dress and an antique hat...

Accessorizing AV Style: Hair Bows

Accessorizing AV Style: Hair Bows

If I'm looking for an instant touch of femininity, romanticism, and old fashioned elegance I almost always reach for one of the simplest yet most overlooked accessories: the hair bow. These beauties elevate any outfit, even when I toss on my vintage Levis and white linen t-shirt. Whether it's a vintage silk scarf tied at the base of my ponytail or pulling half of...

Feminine Vintage Style: Neutral on Neutral

Feminine Vintage Style: Neutrals on Neutrals

I love a good almost monochromatic outfit, there is something so chic and feminine about neutrals on neutrals especially when it involves a pretty blouse and high waist trousers...very Katherine Hepburn, no?  This look from Mode Amour will never go out of style (in my opinion) because every component of the outfit is timeless. Simple leather sandals, straw handbag, high waist...

Classic and Feminine Midi Skirt Outfit

Classic and Feminine Midi Skirt Outfit

I will always be a forever fan of midi skirts! And a-line skirts for that matter. I find them universally flattering, which is why if you don't own a midi skirt yet, you absolutely must! This pretty sky blue midi skirt (it's vintage!) is worn with a cream blouse knotted at the waist and a camisole (is my guess) underneath....

Timeless and Feminine Outfit: White Shirt & Gingham

Timeless and Feminine Outfit: White Shirt & Gingham

A white cotton long sleeved top is a MUST in your wardrobe. I haven't found one exactly right for AV yet, but once I do... I'll want to live in it, and hopefully you do too.  Anyhow, a white shirt paired black and white gingham is a CLASSIC and timeless feminine style outfit pairing. Add a classic boater straw hat (seriously,...

French Inspired Weekend Style

French Inspired Weekend Style

Is there anything more quintessentially French than a red striped Breton top? Me thinks not! Well..perhaps a beret, but apparently true French girls don't even wear them. I don't really care if it's slightly frowned upon in France, I love berets and will continue to rock them probably till I'm old1  Anyhow, this casual weekend French inspired outfit is so...

Classic and Feminine Vintage Inspired Outfit

Classic and Feminine Vintage Inspired Outfit

First off, if you're not following Gonzalez y Gonzalez on Instagram you really should! It is a BEAUTIFUL home supplies shop in Spain (Madrid) and I am so SMITTEN by it. Why doesn't a shop like this exist in Portland? Anyhow, back to fashion! This combination of a crisp and classic blouse and a-line midi skirt with espadrilles... it will NEVER...

What Shoes to Wear With An Eyelet Maxi Dress

What Shoes to Wear With An Eyelet Maxi Dress

I have a soft spot for any modern dresses that evoke vintage Edwardian dresses like this cotton eyelet lace dress. The trick to wearing it without looking too bridal (because it can easily go there...obviously, white long dress!) is to pair it with flat shoes or sandals. You could do espadrilles that aren't too high and in cooler weather pair with...
