‎”Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life. I don’t think you could do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization.” -Bill Cunningham

If there’s one thing I’m passionate about it’s living life and doing what you love. Today, I watched a documentary based on New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham and I witnessed a passion unlike any other. And it’s not even just for fashion. His love of life and doing what you love is inspiring.

Bill Cunningham New York, follows and chronicles the life of one of the most validated and beloved fashion/street style photographers of our time. Today’s ‘wanna be” street style photographers don’t compare to Bill. I don’t think you even need to love fashion to appreciate the message of this film and his philosophy on fashion.

Style Trend: 1950’s Style with Dorothy Perkins

Ever since the television hit Mad Men came on the air, I’ve been eyeing all 1950’s fashion. Even Banana Republic has introduced a Mad Men inspired line. For a second, I’ll imagine I’m Christina Hendricks as Joan Harris.

I really want a dress now! And I can’t buy from Banana Republic, because they don’t carry my size. Then I remembered Dorothy Perkins carried a lot of 50’s style dresses and they have sizes up to a US 18.

Don’t you just love how the silhouette defines the waist and that flared skirt? Great for showing off those curves! They remind me of I Love Lucy! Ok, These dresses  might be shorter than the average lengths of dresses back then. Regardless, I’m still “madly” in love!

What do you think about 1950’s inspired dresses?
