lessons from my favourite girl crush
She's perfected the art of dressing down. An inspiration to us dress-down dressers every where. Sometimes I feel underdressed for occasions where everyone is "dressed up" in the traditional sense. I love looking at pictures of Sofia Coppola because she's such a good example of how to get it right.
For example, it's obvious from this picture you have the buy the best quality you can afford. I can see how this beautifully-constructed dress could be ripped off poorly with the wrong fabrics, bad workmanship, etc. She's got the casual hair and make-up but she's also well-groomed and she has on a pair of sleek heels to dress things up. And I love how her purse looks almost like a wallet - a nice change from the usual shiny satin, bejewelled evening purses and it adds to the casual-ness of the outfit without looking any less luxurious.
