Style Saturday | Crybaby

Hey Beauties! 

 As my style has evolved and changed over the years a few things have stayed true. I have played with all sorts of outfits and trends but my style sensibility has remained the same in my heart. At the root of my fashion journey I am a lover of classic femininity with a bit of an edge. 

Growing up, I was a big fan of movies based in the 30’s and 50’s and I always admired the simple silhouettes that accentuated a woman’s curves. Who knew that years later my style would be so reminiscent of those movies and the women they portrayed. Today I tend to stick to two distinct silhouettes – a form fitting pencil or a floaty A-line – both of which highlight the shape of my body and feel slightly vintage. I feel like those movies had a bit of influence on how I learned to accept my body as it is. 

This particular outfit was inspired by one of those movies I watched constantly – Crybaby. Crybaby is a cult classic love story about 1950’s Baltimore, when a bad boy (a drape) wins the heart of a good girl (a square) and there is a whole lot of scandalous behaviour and love ballads. One of my favourite characters is a classic bad girl greaser named Wanda and I took one of her outfits and recreated it with a little twist of lace.

I hope you liked my Wanda inspired outfit. Have you seen Crybaby? If not you absolutely need to, if only for Johnny Depp.

    Uncomfortable due to the fact the tearducts are usually upon quick-release? Maintain the cry-baby nature! An excellent good friend involving mine told me this particular history recently. In her diploma, your woman has been introducing her work before lots of idol judges who provide her an essential rank your woman had to move her degree or diploma. Was a crybaby
