Don't you want some duddies to love?
Maybe there's a psychological issue here I should explore, but when I'm alone, I gravitate to films that are embarrassingly terrible. I find comfort in just me, the couch, Lohan and an entire box of Wheat Thins.
This ritual has led me to gems of cinema including "Georgia Rule," "To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday," "Just My Luck," "The Perfect Man," and something where Heather Graham plays a folk singer. I forget what it's called. I may have repressed the memory.
On my day off this week, I scrolled down and clicked "Factory Girl" starring Sienna Miller. As expected, it was a steaming pile of poo. It's a sketchy biopic of Edie Sedgwick (pictured left), Andy Warhol's superstar. But one good thing came out of it -- it left me totally giddy for clothes!
By the end, I was lusting for Sedgwick's over-the-top mod 60s style -- the black leggings, the minidresses, the newsboy hats, the HUGE FABULOUS EARRINGS. The next day, I wore my own ruffled Peter Pan collar dress to work with enormous hoops and black tights. I listened to the Velvet Underground. But, uh, I passed on the hallucinogenics.
60s style invaded runways a few years ago. Now we've sort of moved into hippie dippy, with high-waisted pants and celebs who insist on wearing TERRIBLE FLOWER HEADBANDS. But certain mod trends are still available and awesome. I mean, you can't shop anywhere without seeing black tights, leopard print and flats. I believe they will always be flattering when done right. Who's with me!?
Read on for some "Factory Girl" finds I scouted, inspired by my boyfriend, Cabe L. Box. Next week -- we'll examine fashions from "No Reservations" starring Catherine Zeta Jones!
