{Fall wishlist no. 1}

I put together a little Fall wishlist of pieces that I've been eyeing a lot lately: berries, navy, & grey with touches of gold and black leather accessories.  So far, sticking to my Fall color palette is pretty easy!  Stay tuned for some khaki colored pieces I'm coveting and lots of outerwear options ...

Olivia Wilde in The Longest Week {Style Icon}

Have you guys seen The Longest Week?  It's a quirky romantic dra-medy starring Jason Bateman and {the gorgeous} Olivia Wilde.  I'm by nooo means a movie critic, but I will say that if you don't like Wes Anderson films, you will NOT like this film {imitation is the highest form of flattery?}.  While I couldn't really fall completely in love with this movie because of the bad taste that Wes Anderson always leaves in my mouth -- I would still watch this movie again.  Why? Oivia Wilde's style in this movie .... tailored, slightly playful, minimalist, monochromatic (mostly taupes, blacks, and creams), with a nod to the 60's.  And the cherry on top of her perfect wardrobe ... I've never seen a a cat eye executed so perfectly.  I also love that she doesn't have an expansive wardrobe in this movie -- her character must wear the same classic black chelsea boots everyday, she rewears the black cape in almost every scene, and she's never in a shot without her eyeliner done.  Rewearing the same stuff over and over is more truthful to what women actually do, but it never comes off boring or blah.

I'm officially growing out my hair to copy her hairstyle in this movie.  Best bangs ever.

Feast your eyes & do yourself a favor and rent this movie!
