Subtle bell sleeves

Here’s what I wore Friday May 5. I love this dusty pink top; I think the subtle bell sleeves is such a nice touch, and I love the contrast between the long sleeve top and the mini skirt.

Film style icon: Holly Golightly

I’d like to start a series of posts about style icons from films. Watching films is one of my favourite pastimes, and I love being inspired by film fashion. I’ll start this series with the leading lady from one of my absolute favourite films; Holly Golightly (played by my favourite actress Audrey Hepburn) from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961).

The most iconic Holly Golightly outfit is of course her little black dress paired with pearls, gloves, and big sun glasses. She made the LBD a wardrobe stable for most women, and I myself have been inspired by this look and worn a similar outfit at numerous costumes parties (here’s some pictures from the last time I dressed up as Miss Golightly).

One of my favourite Holly looks is this amazing all pink one. Even though we see Holly in a lot of neutral colours, she wears a couple of colourful outfits that are just stunning. This outfit speaks to me for several reasons, but the main reason why I love it is because of the colour (you probably know by now that I love pink).

Another colourful Holly Golighty outfit consists of this amazing orange coat paired with black and dark brown accessories. This look is very simple, but incredibly stylish.

Holly Golightly is not only inspiring when she’s all dressed up; this casual polo neck and black trousers combo is timeless.

The little black dress is not the only classic clothing item displayed in Breakfast at Tiffany’s; Holly Golightly rocked the beige trenchcoat as well. I used to wear my beige trenchcoat a lot, and now I really want to start wearing again.

Unusual colour combination

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Bronze and mint is probably an unusual colour combination, but that’s why I like it. One of the great things about make-up is that it easily comes off again, so why not experiment with different colours, finishes, and so on.

Colourful party make-up

Dinosaur and glitter

Here’s what I wore Saturday (night) April 22. We had a party at my dorm, and not a theme party for once, so I decided to go all out with glitter. It was also the perfect occasion to get some use out of my dinosaur bag, and in general I felt very comfortable, but still dressed up in this outfit.

I haven’t done any (well, barely any) second hand shopping for a really long time, and I really want to get back into it. However, I did find these pink glitter heels at a second hand shop, and I had to have them. They were super inexpensive, and I wore them at a party shortly after I bought them. My next post will be pictures of that outfit.
