Annebeth 's Thoughts:

Everyone who knows me a bit knows that I am a huge fan of the movie Almost Famous. I probably wrote about it before. Anyway, this is THE feel good movie for me, and coming of age films are always a bit special because you can relate to so many of the little struggles of the protagonists. But Almost Famous isn’t just greatly written, it’s also a visual experience: the costuuuuumes! I love love loved the bandaids and how they looked, those hot seventies minxes that were still just girls having fun and following their dreams. There was an innocence in their styling, mixed with raw sexualism, which kind of really represents the mixed feeling of the times as well: free love and idealistic youngsters. The coming of age of the characters kind of coincided with the coming of age of the times, going from the sixties “when it was all happening” to the seventies, when oil crisis etc hit the world. Haha but maybe I’m reading too much into it. The images speak for themselves, and that rocker-hippie-chic look hasn’t ceased to inspire me since.

This is one of those outfits that was inspired by the whole seventies rocker idea. I’d imagine wearing this for a night of performing or just looking at my boyfriend perform. And for a day on the tourbus, I’d just put flat, cowboy style boots with it. I like how this looks a bit retro, but not too much. Paisley prints and headbands etc would’ve made it too “full on replica”, no? This is still quite modern.

Do you have a certain era/movie that inspires you? Or does your sense of style just come from within?

Luv this! You could probably wear any era & look good! I adore oldschool looks 30's - 60's (my Audrey infatuation) and the now (Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Leighton Meester). I'd say actresses/icons more then actual movies influence my look.
