best dressed

All my friends know that I’m a pop-culture junkie, no matter what happens I always watch the red carpet season, I’m a sucker for red carpet fashion. Don’t you just love to see gorgeous people wearing gorgeous gowns? The Oscars are the big finale for the season, that’s why I want to share with you my top picks for best dressed in no particular order.

It’s mid-february, so its no surprise to deal with freezing cold weather every single day. So, this week when the sun finally decided to show up, I was eager to join the party. I always claim that the cold doesn’t bother me (call me Elsa) because it’s winter, and there’s nothing we can do to change the seasons, so we might just as well embrace it and try to make the best of it, but this year in particular I’ve had to wake up at 6 AM in order to arrive on time to my 7 AM class and let me tell you that the weather during the first hours of the day is extreme. It never snows in Mexico and this year the weather was so intense that we almost had snow.

So, like I was telling you before I got all Elsa from Frozen, this week the sun finally decided to say hi and it’s been wonderful. I think I had never missed the warm rays of light as much, so naturally the first thing I did was grab a dress. This white one I’ve had for years now, I actually got it for a trip to the beach and it’s such a versatile piece. You can dress it up or down, it’s perfect.

I decided to pair it with this trench coat just in case it got a little chilly later that day because mornings and nights have remained cold. This beautiful coat is from Ivonne, I don’t know if its still available but right now trench coats are a thing so I’m sure you won’t have trouble finding these babies.

There are only a few things that I enjoy as much as going through a fashion magazine or staying in to watch a movie, so getting to do both things at the same time is golden for me. There have been many amazing series devoted to fashion and style, like the oh so perfect Gossip Girl, from the wardrobe, to the locations and the psychology of the characters that managed to inspire us in every single episode. Since the Serena Van Der Woodsen days are long gone, I thought it was time to bring back that amazing feeling, but this time focusing on the major motion pictures. I’ve decided to share with you 7 of my favorite fashion related movies.

1. The Devil Wears Prada

I know you’ve probably seen this movie a billion times, but not including it would be a terrible sin. I won’t go a lot into what this movie is about because I don’t want to spoil it for you if you haven’t seen it. Just watch it and thank me later. This movie was adapted from a book written by Lauren Weisberger, who worked at Vogue magazine for awhile. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out she was inspired by Anna Wintour (American Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief) to create Meryl Streep’s character.

2. The September Issue

Talking about the Queen.

The September Issue is a documentary that focuses on Anna Wintour, Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief while preparing the start of the “Fashion Year”. If you didn’t know, september is like january for fashion magazines. It’s the most important issue of the year, and when you’re the leader of a magazine like Vogue, everything has to be perfect.

3. The Intern

The Intern is a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro. It talks about an old man that applies for a retirement internship citizen program and lands a job at an e-commerce fashion startup. This is the best fashion + comedy combo. You’ll love it.

4. Coco before Chanel

This movie is next on my list when I get to stay in. This french movie tells the story of Coco Chanel, all the way from her origins to the incredible empire she ended up building. She was truly a pioneer in the fashion world and everybody should know her story, plus I’m pretty sure this one is available on Netflix.

5. Funny Face

Funny Face is a musical from 1957 starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. Audrey’s character, Jo Stockton, is discovered at a fashion shoot in a bookstore and her adventures as a model take her all the way to Paris. If you love musicals, you will adore this movie. Besides, who doesn’t love a good Audrey Hepburn movie?

6. Confessions of a Shopaholic

A girl that loves fashion, living in New York. Sounds like a dream, right? Yeah, well… things can get really messy when you’re a shopaholic. If you love to shop and your happiness leves rise overtime you see the word “sale” you will relate. Honestly this movie is all of us, and its perfect for a popcorn night with your bestie.

7. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Another Audrey Hepburn movie and a classic for sure. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is based on a book written by Truman Capote. It revolves around the peculiar life of Holly Golightly, a New Yorker socialite and her cat. If you haven’t seen this one, do it, you won’t regret it. Besides, it has just the perfect touch of romance.

Do you know any other movies that are a must for fashion lovers?
