Secretary (2002)

With 50 Shades of Grey being released tomorrow, I figure it’s only natural that this week’s Fashion in Film be about one of the original BDSM movies, Secretary. Now, having not read the 50 Shades trilogy, I have no basis of comparison, but I absolutely love this movie.

In fact, it’s often listed as one of my favorite love stories. Wait, before you get all “Alex, that’s a bit TMI about your life”, let me make my point. As crazy, and a bit sadistic as this movie is, these two characters are so perfect together. There is no coercion, no forcefulness, and in the end, these two really, really, love each other.

And Gyllenhaal’s style is so great. It’s one part Zooey Deschanel twee, and one part sexretary. While the jury is still out on how I feel about 50 Shades, this BDSM movie is definitely one I can get behind.

Sunday Style Icon: Lauren Hutton

When you think of the All-American Girl, chances are, Lauren Hutton is definitely one of the faces that comes to mind. Hutton, a model with a career spanning several decades, looks like a Ralph Lauren poster girl in real life. A bit preppy, casual, and always put together. Starting off as a model in the 70s, she was told to cover the gap in her teeth, but when it didn’t work so well, she decided to keep it, and it became part of her iconic look.

Hutton was also a totally bad-ass female motorcycle rider. She was part of a motorcycle group with the likes of Jeremy Irons and Dennis Hopper, as well as the VP of the Guggenheim Museum Motorcycle Club. Yeah, Lauren Hutton, she’s pretty bad-ass.

Weekend Reading

 

It has been a week, you guys. Nothing in particular about it was bad, or super busy, but it just felt spread to thin and weird. I’m adjusting to only having one job (which, let’s be real, is sort of like torture for me), but I am finally feeling like I’m settling into my life.

I’m trying to enjoy the time between having two jobs. I’m spending more time writing, cooking, exercising, and dreaming up projects that I can’t wait to share with you. Here’s what caught my eye this week!

How to Marry a Millionaire (1953)

I know this is like super, super cliche, but I totally love Marilyn Monroe. Not in this sorta hero worship type way, but in a legit actress way. And one of my favorite roles is her role as Pola in How to Marry a Millionaire. She’s just so adorable, and truthfully, I totally think it’s the glasses. Like, only Marilyn could make cat-eyes look that chic.

And is it just me or is it that every single time I watch a movie made in the 1950s, I’m totally swooning over their style. Like it all feels just so effortlessly put together, and I stand in front of my walk in closet every morning thinking I have nothing to wear. I swear, I’m going to clean it out and only buy full-on “outfits” from here on out!

Romantic Accessories for Valentine’s Day

 

Last week, I put together a roundup of some of my favorite Valentine’s Day Dresses for this year. But, for those of us that might not have any V-Day Plans (#allthechocolate), I wanted to pull together a few cute accessories.

Sometimes, to get in the spirit of the holidays, I don’t feel like getting entirely dolled up. THose are the occasions where a carefully fun, chic, and preferably sparkly accessory come into play. And the best part about accessories? They can more easily be worn time and again without breaking the bank!
