Inspiration Friday, Carey Mulligan

There are very few modern day celebrities that I admire. Carey Mulligan is without a doubt one of them! Not only is she a wonderful actress, but I think her style is just lovely. A perfect mix of vintage and modern! Here are some of my all time favorite Carey Mulligan looks...

This dress seriously makes me weak in the knees...

Carey's Oscar dress in 2010 was perfection. This is exactly what I would want to wear to the Oscars!

Somehow she even makes black leather look super sweet.


Two of my favorite things, the color red and ruffles!

Sparkles and the perfect silhouette!

Even on her time off Carey dresses adorable! Love.

1940's style floral dresses? Yes please.

And this is Carey just a few weeks ago at Comic Con. Back to her blonde pixie, yay!
Have a lovely weekend darlings! :O)

Summertime Floral

Dress made by me using a vintage pattern
Belt and shoes thrifted

I've been wanting a simple floral sundress.. so finally I made myself this one! It turned out a little big in the waist, which is okay because that makes it perfect for those comfy days ;o) I'm already just about finished with a different version of this dress. I altered it a bit here and there and so far it's turning out great! I'll show it to you soon. I hope everyone is well! xo

Inspiration Friday, My Dream Little Black Dress

I've come realize that I'm in desperate need of a little black dress! Well, maybe that's being a little dramatic, hehe ;o) The fact is I don't have a go to little black dress.. and every girl should, shouldn't she? I've decided that I'm going to attempt making mine. Here are some of my inspiration pictures...

Brigitte Bardot back in the early 1950's...

Jean Seberg in Bonjour Tristesse...

and of course Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina! My perfect little black dress seems to have a nipped in waist and full skirt. No surprise there I suppose. Now it's time for me to find the perfect fabric!
Also, I want to thank you all for the lovely comments about the little top and skirt set I made! It means a lot. Have a wonderful weekend! xo
