Lady In the City

As much as I love my bright primary colors and seeing wacky style, there is something so attractive about being a lady. Maybe it's because I am a GIRL, but I know there is something more. I've declared my love for old fashion styled hats and now I declare the union of two perfect pairs the hat and the dress. So old fashion and preppy urban snobby elite-ish, but I love it.

It's summer time and I had nothing better to do than photoshop the pictures I took for my thrift finds. I really want to stroll around the streets of Paris like this some day or even just walk my dog in such an outfit.

The classic "lady" look has been a recurring theme in manyr of the designer's collections for the past seasons. I hope it never leaves so I can thrift more dresses as such and finally muster the courage to poop walk dear ole tyke in this hat and dress combo. I feel like an old lady, but I like old people - they're cute.

Some of my inspiration:

I love Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. I was watching it again last night and realized how classy she looked after her shopping spree/post-hooker. I loveee the scene when she walks back into the store and showed those snobby saleswomen who was boss. I wish I could do that to some snobby saleswomen someday, but sadly I will never be a prostitute with mucho money from a rich client..sigh.

Good ole Carrie Bradshaw in her superb pink Oscar de La Renta Dress in Paris. Too bad I can't afford such luxury items but my 2.25 thrifted pink dress will do just fine.

Another lady in pink! The first lady Jackie kennedy. I want that hat!

And finally we have audrey hepburn from breakfast at tiffany's. I've never seen the movie nor do I know much about this style icon, but this image is so iconic and symbolic of everything lady and classy. Now all I need to do is find my Little Black Dress.
