Too much magenta. Whatever.
Man, was I in a sartorial rut last week, I couldn't be bothered to wear anything else except basics, which is all well and good for the sake of comfort, but I just wasn't feeling suited to flair.
Every once in a while, when I start feeling like that, I'll finally get fed up and watch a certain cache of films I have stashed on my computer for the purposes of sparking my imagination. In this folder I have A Hard Day's Night, Cabaret, The Triplets of Belleville, Harold and Maude and of course, Annie Hall.
Yes, Woody Allen has had his numerous scandals, but there is always something relatable and beautiful to find in his films, and Annie Hall has proven to remain particularly important for me. Annie is such an admirable character (played by her real-life persona, Diane Keaton), and it isn't just her singular, quirky sense of style, it's her sunny temperament and confidence in the face of her occassional bumbling mishaps that adds charm to every movement she makes on screen
I watched Annie Hall this morning before heading out, marking every costume change. I've looked to her before for inspirado numerous times before, but I hadn't tried that oh-so-70's scarf-around-the-waist thing before, or at least not for a while. I had this wonderful menswear inspired blouse and the high waisted shorts, but the lack of color bothered me. And on went the scarf.
Proved to be pretty nifty, eh?
