kirsten

so i said the other day that kirsten dunst deserves her own style post, and while i was cleaning up my computer i found some old photos i had saved to my ‘inspiration folder’ (before i started saving things online aka blogging everything i liked…) one thing i noticed about kirsten is that she’s years ahead of the trends; all these photos are from between 2004 – 2008 and she’s rocking stuff that girls are all wearing now (military jackets, breton stripes, clog type platforms, doc martens – the list goes on and on). anyway i’ve always loved her & find her taste pretty impeccable and effortless, will have to do an update one of these days of kirsten circa 2010

the virgin suicides

Air popped up on my playlist this morning, which of course made me think of The Virgin Suicides. one of those movies that i love, but hardly ever watch. i think most girls my age can relate when i say this film had an impact on my teenage days (i was 16 when it came out). we were the same age as the lisbon chicks (but, hopefully, not as sheltered/melancholic/suicidal) and we all kind of had a thing for josh hartnett.

the irresistible combination of the visuals and music of this film must have inspired thousands of girls to create flickr photo sets that are dreamy + ethereal and heavily photoshopped to look pastel + lovely. sophia coppola is their queen, as you can also pick up in the recent ad she did for miss dior cherie:

it’s all very pretty though, isn’t it?
