From black and white classics to specific '40s influential films with an underlining fashion focus, the list is almost endless for inspiration. I started with an early viewing first course of Eldorado (1921) and Roberta (1935), then viewed Now, Voyager (1942) as a main course, and finished with a glam treat of Cover Girl (1944), amongst many others that week.
The more films that I viewed, the categories loved seemed to eclectically grow ... There was your black comedy, dramatic costume influence, and undeniable romance, yet cinematography would also make its way into the shelf of appreciation. A couple friends of mine allowed me to carry-on some of their favourite films that I had not seen, so it was even more thrilling!
All of these inspiring moments lead me to my presentation work outfit sans the hat. I tend to wear all black for some reason on days like this, not always, but most of the time.
The look: I decided to add a touch of modern accessories, my favourite retro hat, and a crepe and silk ruffled maxi-skirt that I made a long time ago to pair with this striped shirt. The brooch-styled ruffle DIY at the neck was then thrown into the mix for the (personal) cherry topping to the outfit! Here are the side snap shots:
The goods: Shirt-c/o Oasap, Necklace-gifted, Metal belt-F21, Heels-Seychelles, Neck ruff-DIY,, Silk skirt-Ladyofashion, Bucket hat-scored at a random boutique, Bird and Elephant Ring-Urban Outfitters and Love Culture.
Do you have a favourite silent film or fashion film from the '20s, '30s, or '40s?
