Fashion in Movies: My Week With Marilyn
There’s no era of fashion that screams classic and glamorous like the 50’s. And there’s no woman that screams the same like Marilyn Monroe. Played by Michelle Williams in My Week With Marilyn, Marilyn’s style is something that every woman should emulate with at least one outfit or during a period of their lifetime. Showing off her beautiful curves while maintaining class was something that every woman should do. She showed off her body and was proud of every inch of it. Follow Marilyn’s lead by wearing modern high-waist pants, skirts, and shorts and pair them with a classic button-up or a form fitting bra top. Another way we can take Mailyn’s lead? Confidence. Fashion is all about confidence. Find your style, like Marilyn, and flaunt it. Confine to no one’s fashion (and life) rules but your own.
Fashion in Movies: Skyfall
There’s more to James Bond than doing lots of difficult stunts and hanging out with beautiful women. As an iconic figure, Bond isn’t Bond without the clothes.
Although Bond’s stylish wardrobe in “Skyfall” do not really reflect Daniel Craig’s personal style, the actor said. “Bond’s style is very important to me, and I’m a huge believer that the look and feel, a lot of that has to do with the clothes people wear”. “Skyfall” Costume designer Jany Temime collaborated with the designer Tom Ford to create suits that moved with Craig to give a new look. The suits are indestructible and exceptionally well made. Tom Ford’s impeccable suit gave Bond a successful image with a touch of 2012.
Just like “Skyfall” collaborated with Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani for “The Dark Knight” and Rodarte for “Black Swan”, you can spot many fashion designers in movies. Who are your favorite designers in your favorite movies?
Favorite Blogger:Sabir Peele of Mensstylepro
Here’s another style blogger whose blog truly helped me with my own style and blog. I was searching for style tips and ideas and I came across mensstylepro. I was not familiar with the dos and don’ts of men’s fashion, however his sense of style paved the way for me. I enjoy the fact that he stays true to his own style as well as try new things. I also appreciate that he collaborates with a lot of fashion brands and he does giveaways for his readers and followers. Sabir’s style and blog is getting a lot of attention and he deserves it for what he has brought to the table. Be sure to show some support and check out his blog. -IJ

Favorite Fashion & Beauty Bloggers
Fashion and beauty bloggers are literally EVERYWHERE. So-long searching through store catalogs to see what the latest trends and styles are. I find these two blogs a necessity for my upkeep in style & beauty.
Lara from The Glossarie and Christina from Oh So Glam are two fabulous bloggers out there in the blogosphere that I check daily. What I love about both of these girls is how they keep me coming back for more! They both update frequently and feature a wide range of products, outfit posts, sale alerts, and who doesn’t love an occasional giveaway?
For me, I have champagne taste with a beer budget, so I love that both blogs feature a wide variety of items that don’t always break the budget I try and have!

Lana Del Rey for H&M
There may be no celebrity that I have a bigger girl crush on right now than Lana Del Rey. Her amazing retro style makes me want to teeze my hair to its maximum height, wing out my eyeliner past my eyebrows, and put on my favorite red lipstick. Did I forget to mention her amazing vocals and album that has been on repeat on my iPod for weeks?
Besides all that (yeah, there’s more), Lana Del Rey is the face of H&M’s Winter ‘12 collection. Filled with peplum tops, puffy jackets, and printed pants, this collection is simply perfect. Lana Del Rey is perfect for this retro-packed line that has us dreaming of Old-Hollywood and vintage cars racing through LA. Well, and a fashionable winter.
