Three Days of the Condor

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetWhat luck to turn the channel and find one of my all-time favorite movies, Three Days of the Condor, a 1975 thriller starring Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway! This movie is a must-see for the story, the acting, the NYC backdrop, and of course, the fashion. Redford plays a member of the CIA who finds himself in grave danger without a sense of whom he can trust. He meets stranger Dunaway, who becomes involved in his dangerous plight. I have seen it a few times and each time I relive the thrills and chills. It is a movie easy to absorb and what you also notice – are the clothes. Redford in a black pea coat with the collar pulled up and Dunaway in that 70s style that is so effortlessly chic. In one scene she wears a long skirt, boots, jacket, and winter hat. You can imagine my joy when I was able to recreate this look myself, the very next day. Continue reading

When it comes to dressing up (or dressing down) it’s crucial that you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing and most like yourself. What do I mean? You always want to feel good when you walk out the door. Even when holiday shopping tempts you, it’s not worth buying something new that doesn’t suit your style perfectly – no matter how shiny or glittery it may be. I would rather wear something I really love again and again, than wear new things that are just, so-so. Continue reading

Change is here – welcome to Turning Fashion Inside Out! New name, new weekly podcast (launching soon). I made the name change because … fashion is not always for those on the inside. Many of us feel left out of the fashion industry if we don’t look a certain way or purchase certain clothes or travel in the fashion circles … what’s inside is expressed by our fashion choices on the outside … and because some feedback from participants have noted that “your blog is really helpful to understand that fashion and confidence go together and always involve change.” What will never change, however, are my guiding principles and who I am. On to consignment treasures …

For my birthday, my mom treated me to some treasures from a new consignment shop in her town. I was reminded once again of the value of consignment shopping. In today’s world of ‘cookie-cutter’ department store fashions where so many stores carry the same look, adding a consignment shop to your shopping repertoire is a must. You can find one-of-a-kind things that simply aren’t available anywhere else and if you happen to love labels this is the most cost-effective way to buy a specific brand. You can get luxury goods at a fraction of their original cost. In the past I have purchased beautiful handbags that I could never have afforded otherwise, including a classic black Prada, shoes, and several high-end designer brand named items, including Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino (seen here), Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, and Theory.
