If my previous posts weren’t apparent, I’m obsessing over French film, Pierrot Le Fou. the 1965 film revolves around an unhappily married man (played by Jean-Paul Belmondo) living on the run with an ex-girlfriend (played by Anna Karina), who is being chased by OAS gangsters.
When I first watched this movie, I was immediately enthralled with Karina’s wardrobe. They reflected now only Parisian fashion, but they encompass the perfect summer wardrobe. Everything that she wore in this movie were outfits that I myself would wear during the summer season.
I love anything in the colour red. Not only is it my favourite colour, I just think it’s flattering colour on everyone. So you can imagine how much I loved the baby doll dress seen above. I love everything from the colour, to the silhouette to the neckline.
I think that this dress is a perfect example of being girly and representing absolute femininity.
Simple dresses make the most grand statements. I love the striped print on this dress and it represents everything about summer: simplicity, femininity and fun. Try having a few dresses like these in your wardrobe for this upcoming summer season – you’d be surprised at home much they compliment your wardrobe.
I have always loved really atypical beach outfits. The stripes in this outfit are nautical and the red is a lovely warm colour. And I love that the hat is is black and not the standard wheat coloured straw hats.
Lesson I am trying to convey? Mix things up a little bit and be different.
“I’m just a sentimental girl, that’s all. Only a fool would make a big mystery out of that.”
