Since we ditched cable, we’ve been hostage to the Netflix streaming selection. It’s not the best selection, but it’s great quality, so here’s a half-ass cheers to them.
I love classic movies. Short on violence, heavy on style and script. But the only reasons to watch “How to Steal a Million” are 1. the Jaguar E-type, 2. young Peter O’Toole, and 3. Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy wardrobe. Well, and her hair, makeup, and general lovableness. Her style is enviable; however, it’s not the 1960′s, I’m not the daughter of a millionaire artist crackpot, and somehow, I’m not in Paris. But we can pretend with accessories.
Nowadays, it’s hard to get a booth at the Applebees in a designer lace eyemask. But frame bags, oversize sunnies, classic skinny belts and mid-heels are some of the easier things to pull off. Deeper cuts include driving gloves and structured cloches.
