Fashionista Friday - Cinema to Runway - 60s style

My friends and I went to see The Help last night. Not only is it a movie that created a rollarcoaster of emotions (one friend in particular & I laughed and cried multiple times in all the same spots...maybe it as also the bottle of wine we split that assisted with this??), but the fashion was like eye candy. I'm not one to don the tight bodice, full skirt dress often, but I sure do like to look at other girls who do.  I'm more of a pencil skirt girl, which Jessica Chastain wore perfectly.

Oh, to be a costume designer!

The costumes brought back visions of Mad Men, which in turn created bad thoughts about the money-hungry producers who held up this show from taping on time this year. Making us wait another 6 months before we get to see what vixen Joan, evolving Peggy, and discontent Betty is going to wear this season is misery! 

Too hold me over until 2012...

As seen on the Fall 2011 runways mod is back in a BIG way and I fully want to take part in this trend.

I've never seen one episode of Mad Men. How sad am I? I hear it's a great show I just forget to look for it on the tube.
