There's nothing better than watching a movie filled with endless amounts of sartorial inspiration. Lately the types of movies that have inspired me are films set in the 40s. I really recommend I Capture the Castle for the plot, beautiful wardrobe and breathtaking imagery.
One thing I loved about the wardrobe in I Capture the Castle was the marriage of extreme poverty to luxury. Every scene had a strange juxtaposition of silks and velvet next to crumbling walls and dirty floors. One character that really stood out to me was Rose. She has a bohemian & eclectic feel to her style that gave her a little more edge than the other characters, although all of them had equally stunning wardrobes. The clothing in the film were meant to be outdated and you could see an amazing mixture of 20s and 30s style along with modern (for that time) 40s styles.

I couldn't end this post without showing you some of the thing's I found to go along with these stills. Sometimes I think it would be so much fun to be a personal shopper just so I could have an excuse to see some of these pieces up close.
