umbrellas of cherbourg

i don’t know what it is but i really have a thing for jackets… i have quite the trench coat obsession, a collection of them are gathering in my closet. considering the buckets of rain that have been falling these past few days i decided to wear a trench coat (as the rain continues to pour). i find that a trench really can pull together an outfit, or be the statement piece of an ensemble. i have been looking at all the spring 2013 shows (i will be posting soon about trends of spring 2013) and without fail almost every designer incorporated a trench or two. they are essential, functional, and pull even the most simple of outfits together. the outfit i put together is not very simple at all..but considering the dreary repetitive grey skies and damp air i needed some color. i pulled out an old rose printed (another spring trend i noticed–flowers) satin dolce and gabbana skirt to add some contrast to the dreariness around me. i find that this outfit is very UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG..(see above) a film i find very inspirational (in terms of style)and stylish, the interiors, set design,wardrobe, hair, makeup all come together so beautifully– if you have not seen it you should . i also adore catherine deneuve….but for another day i will discuss her. for now see below. enjoy.
