somewhere over the rainbow 3/15/10

3/15/2010

i've been getting a lot of judy garland comments recently. in the past two weeks, i've had friends say that i look very judy garland-esque or parisian. i think it has something to do with my new bomber jacket...yeah, that's it.

and to top it off, i've heard "somewhere over the rainbow" like a million times since then, including when i went shopping at victoria's secret, and i even had to sing it in my voice class. it was the weirdest thing. so i think judy must be speaking to me through the grave. on that note, i've decided to post some great photos of judy and her style.






who has your favorite old-school style?

bonus: my cocktail dress
(dress and jacket--forever 21; accessories and shoes--charlotte russe)
complete with black nail polish

  5. You're hair looks so pretty and retro. Did you go somewhere special? I don't think I can recognize Judy Garland unless I'm watching Wizard of Oz or if I see a picture of her as Dorothy. I should get start getting into watching old movies and getting to know classic Hollywood starlets. They're so inspiring.

  9. I lovelovelove Judy Garland - I wanted to be her when I was little! She has such a gorgeous face and was so talented. I also really like Rita Hayworth, I wish stars of that era were still around.

  13. Maybe Judy is your muse or someone you want to embody/follow style wise. Like Gap did with Audrey Hepburn and the skinny pants. I've heard that once you're aware of something new it tends to follow you, the only scenario I can think of for me, is when I learn like a new term of phrase and it seems like all of a sudden everyones saying it.
    Love your style though
    :]!!

  15. Ooh, I wonder what Judy is trying to tell you? I love Audrey of course (who doesn’t) but my favorite is Marylyn, she was always a little undone…
    And this cocktail dress is amazing. It’s almost iridescent.
