Respectively Retrospective

If I'm honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all
     Audrey Hepburn 

Outfit: Tweed Skirt (Thrifted), Sweater (American Eagle), Beret (Gift), Belt (Thrifted)

   The weather continues to surprise me with its mild temperature and sunny days, and all in January! It's warm enough to wear flats- and that makes me incredibly happy! 
   My ensemble today was inspired by Faye Dunaway's wardrobe in the 1967 Bonnie & Clyde film; Dunaway dons the loveliest collection of A-line skirts, berets, flats, and light pullovers. She's quite the fashionable criminal! 
   I absolutely love watching movies from previous decades, the woman are ceaselessly glamourous and the men are tirelessly charming, it was the time of gentlemen and ladies.  The bf and I the other day watched Jean-Luc Godard's 1960 film À Bout de Souffle, I found it a tad strange but I liked watching it for the fashion (apparently, Godard did not ask Paris permission to shoot his film, so the street shots are spontaneous and therefore a primary source for  sixties style). 
   Where do your fashion inspirations originate from? 

Thanks for reading!
