Movie poster: Vertigo (group thread).

Another simple poster, another simple outfit. The BOLD colors and cutout-like effect of the poster are really striking, so I wanted to work around those ideas. I thought about doing a crazy vertigo-inducing pattern mix (b/w striped blouse + red plaid pants + houndstooth flats), but felt that the simplicity of the poster is its strength.

  • Ivory mesh sleeve sweater, white belt - white spiral, mesh reminiscent of spiral overlap
  • Red jeans - red background
  • Black studded flats - small black element
  • Woven silver earrings - round shape, more spiral overlap mesh
  • Black/yellow lined clutch - a little chaos!

For the final manicure of the week I chose a more loose interpretation, using the poster's colors in blocks along with lines further reminiscent of the spirals. I'm quite happy that I can keep these on for a few days for a change And to keep with the bold red coloring I wore bright red lipstick. This outfit is a bit more weekend than workday for me, but it's still a good date night option since hubby prefers minimal outfits and flats. Also feels very summery, especially for the very gray day we're having. Great perk up!
