miss pettigrew lives for a day.

the fashion:
delysia lafosse (amy adams) takes the cake as the most visually fascinating asset of the film.

madame duberry (shirley henderson) looks very coco chanel here, non?

loved miss pettigrew's tuxedo back dress.

her around-the-house looks + underpinnings were amazing!

the set:
very lavish, art deco.

just ignore the half naked boy and look at that background!

loved the wallpaper doors.

anna dello russo.

my all time favorite voguette.
a rare bird of paradise in the fashion industry:
extravagant in taste + humble in personality.

her muscles = daaaaayyummm.

as if she's not fabulous enough, she has the two most spirited assistants ever:
aurora + viviana.

if you didn't know- these are the best sites for street style.

supersonic, idiotic, disconnecting, not respecting.

this may be old news to you, but i just discovered it.
it's rachel antonoff's spring lookbook in the form of a teen witch spoof.
it's embarrassingly funny.

here is the original one:

fun fact: the original teen witch was played by robyn lively.
blake lively's big sis!

french lessons.

i would like to buy that dress.
je voudrais acheter cette robe.

i am not a legit french teacher.
50% of the time i will be completely b.s.ing the french lessons.

anne valerie hash -spring 2010 couture

the clothes aren't particularly my style.
i was mostly drawn to the sentiment behind her couture show.
sarah mower for style.com writes:

 "...she said "I had this idea to do something about personal clothing, memory, and identity, so I started writing to people I admire and asking them to send me something of theirs to transform." Her first letter went to Alber Elbaz, who, with instant generosity, sent a pair of his pajamas, and once he'd agreed, it snowballed. She ended up with Tilda Swinton's Vivienne Westwood tee, Jean Paul Gaultier's Breton shirt, Pete Doherty's frogged drummer-boy jacket, a veil from Diane Pernet, a Chanel jacket from Daphne Guinness, and a spencer belonging to Charlotte Rampling."
