Cracks: Reel in this Look

"Cracks", Cinematic Interpretation! 
Translate the look. It's current and wearable!
Chic vintage goodness!
Lovely film, but seriously crazy teacher! She does some damage!
Fiona is hiding in the row boat away from her team and her teacher, Ms. G! She should've stayed hidden. Love the dreamy moment captured here and the crocheted pillows.
Wishing she was doing CPR and not a total kook! Oh well! She looks perfect! Eva Green is a vintage stunner and totally in the now! The looks are relevant, slightly masculine, but still feminine and prim. There is a Grace Kelly thing going on, but only in terms of the fashion! The tone of the film is dark and eery. 
The agoraphobic ventures out, looking marvelous!
Glamour and grace ooze from her. She learned this from books.
I am eating up this cozy sweater with the silky head scarf. Boho.
The girls and Ms. G! I love all the girls splayed out on the stairs like they're so bored. I remember that age. Everything was an adventure, but we always were saying how bored we were. lol!

Translating Film Fiction Into Reality
The look demands flared pants, silky scarves, a trench, blazers, a tie or two, at least one white shirt, mid length chiffon dresses, accessories in gold tones, florals, stripes, satin lingerie, cozy sweaters, a kimono or two, red lipstick and vampy red nail varnish!

Fall-owing Fashion! Glamour, Grace, Color & Change!

Embracing the Change
Fall Fashion
Get Inspired
I am loving what they've done with Arizona Muse's typically wild, slightly unkept & playful hair! I am thinking, "I can do this,"! Well, at least I am going to try it out! Cute! right? By the way, do you guys love Arizona Muse as much as I do? She is so chic and I love her sense of style! It's effortless, bohemian and demure with and edge. I love how she pulls a look together and it's not basic or simplistic, but feels simple and easy! Can you be my stylist, Arizona Muse? Oh wait, I can simply do it myself & pull from the looks I love! Smart! Why didn't I think of that? Duh!

A little sneak peekery into Self Service's new issue!

Arizona Muse

My personal favorite is this double scarf look! Swoon!

Cropped Colored Trousers!
I cannot wait to Get a couple cute pairs! These are my favorites!

My favorite 1930s-1940s inspired hemlines!
Updated, but of course! 
I pulled a lot of images from and I also googled a few key words to find these looks and pull together this post. If I did not credit a few people forgive me. I don't even know where all of the Arizona Muse images even came from. If you do, let me know and I will credit appropriately and expeditiously! Thanks for being understanding! xo-Brooke

Wedding Bells "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"!

Sweet Virginia, Mountain Mama, Take Me Home!
A Country Road in Sandbridge!
This is my middle brother, Ian and his new wife, Brittany Kippes Lundy, 9/25/11! Congrats! Welcome to the family! My hubby and I traveled back east to VA. Beach for four days filled with family fun and I have the mosquito bights to prove it. It was a hot, humid, sticky, little adventure and rained the whole trip, but it was well worth it! At the wedding I got to bust out some awesome expired, 669 film and play! It rained through the entire ceremony & most of the reception, but it cleared for a few pics! There were two double rainbows on two separate days before the wedding. I even saw a cricket! This couple has luck with them in their marriage for numerous years into their old age! I executed the rehearsal dinner and there are pictures coming soon (Dad put me in charge). I also manned the Mojito station with much assistance from, Cort, who knows how to do math and make drinks for the masses! I was kind of not so good in the math department. It's good to be back in LA, but I will always hold a soft spot in my heart for my home, VA! xo
 This is what airport x-rays do to perfectly good expired film. Lame high powered scanners! ;p
See what I mean?
Aren't they cute? I love little kids at weddings. I always hand them props and fun things happen! They're so darn adorable! Love!

Swooning in Secrecy Over These Fierce Fall Essentials: aka my favorites
 I am loving Alexa Chung's style, as usual, and it was all started when I was inspired by seeing her wearing this fabulous dress over on Who What Wear. Actually, Who What Wear and The Zoe Report are inspiring me a lot lately! It's my morning style update and then I fill in the blanks. I think it's important to share this with you.
