Grey Gardens (2009)

Grey Gardens starring Drew Barrymore as “Little” Edith Bouvier Beale and Jessica Lange as “Big” Edith Bouvier Beale was such a touching and bittersweet film; capturing the essence behind the 1975 documentary. Costume designer Cat Thomas had to span the 1920’s through the 1970’s and did so with a harmonious and humorous eye. Trying to dress characters that were based on true eccentrics~ without turning them in to caricatures~ is crucial not only to believability, but to building a relationship between the character herself and the viewer.

Alexander McQueen Mens F/W 08/09

Alexander McQueen’s menswear collection for fall/winter 08/09 is stupid-fresh; it’s amazing! It’s  a Tim Burton meets fashion, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, and Sweeny Todd all rolled into one. I absolutely dig it. Men, take note! Mostly likely you won’t want to throw down that kind of money for your threads, but see if you can find something that looks like something from these pictures. And ladies, see if you can get your men in some of this!!


Aside from how fun these can be, I think all lindy hopping ladies should have a pair of skin colored tights, a good pair of black hose, and a hot pair of fishnets in their wardrobe. You can buy your basics at a Nordstroms, Macy’s, Dillard’s, etc or for an emergency pair run to your local drug store. And if you feel like your underwear should go the extra distance of keeping your wobbly-bits in place, then you should get a pair of Spanx. No only do these body-shapers smooth everything out, but they hold you in!

So after scouring the internet for tights that I thought were super classy, here are some hot commodities:
