Have you seen the movie Populaire? It's not the most amazing film in the world and at times I found the romantic angle less than ideal, but visually it's a knock-out. Set in the 1950s it features stunning costume design and bold, colorful sets. Point being: today is a very Populaire inspired outfit for me--down to my new typewriter brooch! I'm a sucker for fifties style dresses especially with prim little collars like this one.

Outfit details:
old coat
Jeffrey Campbell loafers (old)

I totally agree with you on Populaire -- the content of the movie isn't perfect, but it's visually-wonderful! That dress is so pretty, and I adore that typewriter brooch!

@Rachel Sheinside tends to run small--most notably in hem length--dresses or skirts are short! I'd also say the smalls (when that is the smallest size) tends to fit more like an xs. Hope that helps!

I've been a big fan of this blog, gosh, going on years now. I came across it going into my freshman year of college, and I graduated last spring. I always like to stop by when I remember and see what new things you're wearing--they're always adorable, and the color combinations are fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration over the years!

I love Populaire! You're right that the plot isn't anything to write home about, but the style of the whole thing is really fun, like cotton candy flavored bubble gum. I love this dress, and collar detail is really fabulous.

You look beautiful as always Rebecca and I love the way you've styled this outfit and really made it your own! I agree with you about Populaire, I was so excited to see it, but the portrayal of gender roles was so disappointing! Your typewriter brooch is wonderfully whimsical and fun.

I love reading your blog and it always lifts my spirits. You're a real artist in all you do, and it inspires me to see what you're doing creatively. Reading your blog inspired me to start my own blogging journey, and to stop setting limits on my creativity. So I'm thankful to you for that, and look forward to seeing what you do next!

Best wishes from London,
