I was looking through dresses on style.com for perfect "midi-length" inspirations (hemlines ending mid-calf) and came across this Wes Gordon dress from his Spring 2011 collection:

I don't know why I fixated on the retro inspiration and relatively simple design, but then I realized it reminded me of the famous dress Tippi Hedren wore in The Birds (as modeled by Barbie):
(This is modeled by Barbie because the real images are too creepy to look at for any length of time!)
So no coat, but the green! the length! the pumps! Maybe it's just me?
In any case, I think the old movies I watched as a child influenced my taste in fashion tremendously. I wonder if a lot of my love for simple silhouettes and elegant draping were inspired by Grace Kelly's wardrobe in To Catch A Thief:
Grace is a style icon for SO many other reasons, but I will leave that for a future post ;)
Do you ever find yourself paying more attention to a movie's wardrobe than the plot? Have any movies inspired your style?
