Top Movies for Fashion Inspiration

Summer Vacation is almost here (in about 2 weeks, finally!) and besides working on the Summer Collection of the shop and sleeping, I have an incredible list of movies to treat myself to and yeah, get some ideas for designs from.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
Lots of glamour, little black dresses and classic NYC daydreaming.

Bonnie & Clyde (1967)
Mean girl with one heck of a style sense. Lots of berets and pencil skirts.

Grease (1978)
Pink Jackets, pantsuits and all the 50's-60's deal.

Clueless (1995)
90's fashion galore! Short skirts, plaid, knee-high socks and insan
e hats.

Marie Antoinette (2006)
Eye candy, must I say more?
Sex and the City: The Movie (2008)
Drooling NYC style and the life every fashionista deserves!

Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009)
This is actually my fave-fave out of the whole list. I just can relate so badly to it! No one can treat you as well as a store can... lol! btw, that is kinda how my room looks like -I'm not saying it's messy, it's somewhat cluttered. =)

Any Fashionable flicks worth recommending??


  1. Confessions of a Shopaholic is my favorite movie! Puts a smile on my face every time I watch it. (:

    Great post ♥

  2. fabulous choices !!! i think i'll always be up for watching clueless again, never get sick of it =P

  3. Mega love for Clueless! I've seen it around a million times, but I love it more every time :P

    Legally Blond is a great movie for those of you who love pink :)

  11. Love the lists!!!
    I agree with you on every movie you put in.

  12. I'm right there with you on SATC (what was your favorite outfit in the first movie? I loved this simple, drapey, almost Grecian white and gold dress Samantha wore early in the movie when they were packing up Carrie's apartment!). Counting down the days until the new movie comes out May 27 . . . just staring at the fashion alone is amazing!

  15. The Devil Wears Prada, SITC episodes are all great and Shanghai Express with Marlene Dietrich is a great one. It's an oldie but amazing fashions. xoxo

  16. I still need to watch confessions of a shopaholic! I'm sure I will be able to relate haha and thank you for the sweet comment!! xxx

  17. great post.....movies are so important for us designers....


  18. watch "down with love" it's a romantic comedy but the costumes are fabulous if you like the 60's look.

    after you watch it, tell me what team you're on (I'm Coddington! woo!)

  20. Empire Records for awesome 90s fashion! And of course, Pretty in Pink for all that is 80s.

    Anna Jane

  21. Have u seen "Jossie and the Pussycats" the movie? I find it cute and it has 1999 fashion all over it :D

  22. mmm breakfast at tiffanys, marie antoinette, and shopaholic are some of my favorites.
    sofashionable and amazing.<3

  23. Great pics - I agree with adding the devil wears prada and down with love. :)

  24. I've never seen it but Annie Hall is always referenced for fashion inspiration. It's on my list!

  25. I love this post! I am going to create a very similar piece to the collar necklace she wears in her party scene and wear it on my wedding day if I ever get married. Very inspiring!

  26. Defs Breakfast at Tiffany's - I have that exact image as a huge poster that covers an entire wall at home!

  27. Choice picks! I love every single one of these... but especially Tiffany's and Clueless, since I watched both of those repeatedly as a young girl (and still do!). Shopholic was great, though I prefer the book series. <3

  28. Definitely love Clueless! And the high-waisted shorts from Grease like the ones Rizzo wears are hot right now too! I have a couple pairs ;)
