Inspiration Friday, Yvette Mimieux

This week for inspiration Friday I've choosen actress Yvette Mimieux! Yvette is most well know for her role as Weena the childlike girl from the future in 1960's The Time Machine. She was also in the film Where The Boys Are, which I've seen so many times it's embarrassing, hehe. Though, I must say my favorite of her films is The Light in the Piazza, which also stars Olivia de Havilland as her mother. If you haven't seen any of Yvette's films, The Light in the Piazza is the one to see! ...and as you'll see here Yvette was quite the beauty with great style to boot.

Does anyone have exciting plans for this weekend?

I must admit I've never heard of her. She's fabulous though. I love the outfits. This post is making me want to hunt for a vintage swimsuit like the one she's wearing, so cute!

What a bombshell! I can't believe I've never heard of her. And her gingham suit really is too too perfect.

So very classy and pretty. Thanks so much for posting. Actually, I have the opposite of exciting plans. I want to have as calm, laid back of a weekend as possible before term starts :)
