vicky cristina barcelona

i loved Penelope Cruz's wardrobe in Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona. she had the perfect summer bohemian look, with vintage floaty dresses and blouses, plenty of crochet and lace detailing, and quirky accessories. i wish google yielded more stills and screenshots from the movie...

my outfit this past saturday had the same vibe. i wore this dress a lot last summer, and after wearing it again i remember why. it is comfortable, keeps me cool in hot days, and every time i wear it someone stops me on the street and asks me where i got it!

i think i will be wearing my hair in a side braid for the next two weeks until i finally get a much-needed haircut...

  4. I re-realized how beautiful that dress she wore in the movie was, the "say something in Chinese" was my favorite scence from VCB, I keep it saved on my computer. I like your dress, they do some nice stuff, but the name of the brand is such a turn off. Those shoes are amazingly fabulous!

  8. i LOVE this movie. i've watched it about 3 times so far; only that few because i don't live alone. definitely netflixing it tonight though.
    and you're most welcome! you think i'm FUNNY??? flattery will get you everywhere!
    i freaking love that dress. i want more pieces like this: airy and light (maybe even frothy) and perfect for the 90ish weather i've been dying in. except perhaps longer so that i don't HAVE to shave my legs. tmi? okay. sorry.

  9. just noticed that p had my same idea. the 'say something in chinese' dress is my favorite. it's long and massive but not unflattering. perhaps it's just because penelope looks wonderful in everything.
