I am with this post starting a new series, introducing you to my personal style icons. I don't know how many instalments it'll have, but we'll see, as long as I am inspired by the style of people, fictional or real, it will continue.
I want to start, not necessarily with my favourite style icon, but definitely the most recent.
I saw the film Brooklyn a couple of days ago and fell in love with the lovely outfits in that film. Brooklyn is about a young Irish woman, Eilis Lacey (played by Saoirse Ronan) that immigrates to Brooklyn NY in the 1950's. One pivotal moment in the film ignites a change in Eilis' style, and from that point on she wears amazing dresses, blouses and skirts, that I want in my wardrobe!
Those of you who know me are aware of the fact that I adore the 1950's aesthetics and style. I find the full skirts and soft colours so beautiful. My favourite outfit in the film is the pink and white dress Eilis wears to a wedding with a matching little hat and white gloves, it's so elegant and gorgeous! But if I'm honest I'd gladly take any of her outfits.
