Faintly Femme Fatale

Thanks to Weardrobe I have gotten my hands on a sweet Flip Video; so naturally I felt the need to shoot a short, pointless film. It is entirely filmed and edited by me, though I was aided by my trustworthy tripod (so don't expect professionalism). The song is "moonlight sonata" by Beethoven.


I was inspired by film noir, so I dressed darkly glamorous. My coat and tights are from Forever 21, the shoes are Bona Drag, the dress Urban Outfitters, the turtleneck H&M, and the bag and necklace are from Modcloth. I find wearing so much black rather harsh and dramatic, but it was entertaining to dress like a character for a day.

  5. Rebecca, I'm such a big fan of all your look, thank you for inspiring great ideas for looks!
    This latest one is simply gorgeous and I love the lipstick shade, perfect red !
    I'm completely in love with that Urban Outfitters black dress that you seem to wear a lot. It is exactly the shape I'm looking for, in my enduring LBD quest.
    Any chance you could give me the reference of this style? Thanks a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's a shame about gilt, but I hope that they will soon ship internationally :)

    That video is great, you're really artsy and I like the all black outfit a lot.

  38. very cool film. :) I think full black ensembles are kind of dramatic, too but that's what I love about them.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the video! You are so talented. And is so impresive that you can do this without help!

    Peace and love!

  40. Moonlight Sonata reminds me of my first boyfriend. Hard for me to think fondly of that guy, but that's another can of worms!

    Love the video, I admire your creativity.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I adore the quilted bag, it's a stunning statement piece with a black outfit. Red is my thing.

    Can I ask, do you actually manage to get reply to each comment that's left here? I mean do you make a point of leaving comments on other blogs when someone comments on yours? I ask because I average around 10 comments per post and I find it tough to get back to everyone, so it must be impossible for you!
