ClothesHorse 's Thoughts:

Has anyone seen Le Mepris or Contempt as it is known in English? I find Brigitte Bardot very inspiring in that movie. At one point she wears a navy pencil skirt, striped shirt, cardigan, and giant headband—and she looks stunning/ravishing/breathtaking…you get the idea. Every time I watch that movie or one like it I wish I was Bardot and cool pull off french simplicity.
All this to say, here’s a slightly Bardot look…

Technical question: Do things get bunchy and showy when tucked under that AA skirt? I've been thinking of buying it as a summer/non-dryclean-alternative to my usual pencils...

Things can get a bit bunchy under the skirt, it definitely isn't a thick kind of fabric that hides other pieces. However, I usually fold the top bit over and if you wear something just long enough to fit under this band the bunching is very minimal...I do have another picture with a shirt tucked into this skirt in my Chictopia photostream if that's any help.

i love that film and brigitte in it also. i think her attitude and the way she carries herself can make a simple outfit really great.

So right! Her attitude is really what works her outfits.

You and Bardot seem to have similar body types? She's a great style icon. I'd love to see you in some cat eyeliner like her as well.

I like to think she and I have similar body types! I actually do wing my eyeliner every day, just no one can really tell b/c of my glasses! boo...
