SCARVES AWAY TO ALI MACGRAW

You’ve got to give credit where credit’s due. A classic, preppy decidely retro winter outfit owes a lot to Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal in Love Story. I originally became obsessed with Love Story upon reading the autobiography of a very interesting film producer, Robert Evans – The Kid Stays In The Picture.

Evans is the man behind some of my most favorite films: Rosemary’s Baby, Chinatown, and The Godfather … Married to MacGraw, their relationship began to disintegrate while she was on the set of Love Story. Read the book, we’ll gossip.

THAT GIRL!

That Girl is one of my favorite television shows of all time. Starring Marlo Thomas as a witty independent female making it on her own in New York City, the show also highlighted incredible 60s style – so fit! I watched so much of it that I lived in shift dresses and cut my hair like hers too. For some reason, this Marc Jacobs resort collection reminds me so much of Marlo.

Two random shots from Google Search – of my favorite television star Marlo Thomas.

ANHEDONIA

Whatever.  I could watch Anne Hall no holds bar any day of the year and every day of the year and it never ceases to make the world stop for a couple of hours. Annie’s family reminds me of my family and Chippewa Falls reminds me of Home Acres and I actually do have a Grammy Hall. It’s the movie that says the most about me. It was the first Woody Allen movie I ever saw and it spiraled what some may classify as an unhealthy obsession. Of Allen’s vast filmography I have only seen barely half, but I just bought a bunch of VHS copies off eBay so slowly but surely it will happen.

DOOM GENERATION

Doom Generation is super fucked up and a little insane but whatever ’cause it’s one of those 90s movies no one really talks about but it happens to have great style. Rockabilly steez. Including: perfect Cat-eye sunnies.  Bad ass leather jackets.  Red lipstick. And the plastic coat in the last pic resembles Prada’s plastic coat this season.

INSPIRATION POINT

New kind of post. Fashion inspiration via in the movies. television, and pop culture. Ranging from the hideously tacky 90s VHS to something more critically acclaimed.  Starting with The Craft! Gothic schoolgirls gone totally right. Clueless but with a bitter edge.
