Funny Face

I recently watched Funny Face for the first time... I had been missing out!!

Needless to say, I was endlessly inspired by Audrey Hepburn's fab '60s style.I wore this orange sweater to simulate Audrey's androgynous shape, and wore it with black skinny pnats, of course!

I also wore my purple '60s jacket! I liked the very mod orange-and-purple combination. I wore my brown booties and brown purse to add some warm depth!

...I need to stop looking on ebay. I bought a bunch of apron patterns yesterday (SO EXCITED), and today I found some sweeeet summer clothes patterns: one for rompers (one with long sleeves and long legs, the other sleeveless with shorts), one for a sundress and lined jacket, and a third for shorts/pants/pencil skirt WITH SUSPENDERS. Oh yes! Luckily, they're not expensive and shipping is really low because they're so light. So. At least now I can avoid ebay, assured that I have enough sewing fodder to last me for a long time!

Speaking of sewing, I worked some more on my skirt today... I'm using a double-needle for the first time, and the silly thread kept knotting and breaking and being all-around uncooperative. I think it was the rainy morning weather ;) It must have been!

I'll leave you with a funny dancing shot! Happy Monday everyone!

  7. Love the sweater and the shoes and bag
    Very cute

  8. the orange and purple contrast is great!

  9. Awww, cute! I love how you used the film as inspiration. You're so good at "theming" your outfits in that way. Awesome sweater, and the purple coat and reddish-brown boots and bag look great with it.

  10. haha that dancing shot is amazing.
    loving that sweater, jacket combo. you killed it

  11. I just love the sweater and the combination of it with that jacket is just great. :) very nice

  12. oh i love audrey hepburn!!! she just looked so chic in everything, the colour of your jacket is so gorgeous and those booties are adorable!!

  13. Oh, I love old movies! Roman Holiday is my favourite, but Funny Face is great, too :) I've always admired Audrey's ability to pull off any style, and I love how you modernised her iconic Funny Face look here (especially that purple coat- you have the best colourful things in your wardrobe!) Also, I can totally sympathise with your eBay habit... I constantly feel compelled to buy J. Crew shoes on eBay, even though I still can't really afford them, just because the prices are lower and they're so pretty!

  14. yeaaaaah dancing bloggers! :D

    i love your sweater, the colors are divine. and yes, audrey definitely knows what is up. i don't even wear pants and i NEED a skinny black cigarette pair because of her.

    also, not sure i've ever seen 'funny face' either. i'll have to get on that right away :)

  15. Love the coat!! Very killer! haha thank you for the beautiful comment on my blog!!
