The Stepford APPROACH


I love watching films.  You probably already knew that.  My favorite are usually French, existential, feminist, satanic and/or pornographic.  There was once an amazing time for film in the United States but that time has definitely passed.  I especially love the 1975 film The Stepford Wives based on Ira Levin’s novel.  Don’t bother renting that awful Nicole Kidman movie of 2004. Love this concept behind the film “…Stepford is a sort of chauvinistic dystopia, and that the depiction of subservient, robotic women is intended as a satirical statement against traditional gender roles.”

The fashion in the original Stepford Wives is absolutely drool inducing!  The best wardrobe by far can be seen on the character Bobbie Markowe, seen above in the button-down and shorts.  She’s independent, irrepressible, and amazing.  AND since everyone went nuts after seeing Garance Dore’s “cherchez le gaon“, I think her style is apropos for your summer look.

Clothes: Elizabeth and James Black Striped Schoolboy Shirt $264, Forever 21 H81 Adria Linen Short $19.90, Urban Outfitters Grandpa’s Pocket Watch Necklace $28

    Love this movie. Love high back white wicker chairs. Now if I can just master the art of a cute pair of shorts I will be fine.

      I know you can master the shorts Heather. Pair them with those amazing yellow sandals you were wearing yesterday and you’re all set! Lets talk movies sometime, ok?

    We have similar taste in movies! I love French movies. Amelie est mon film favori.

    • Fashion INTEL Says:

      J’adore Amelie!
      Are you excited for Coco Avant Chanel? I’m d-y-i-n-g!!!!

      • Halie A Says:

        I am! Audrey Tautou is a wonderful actress and I am convinced she will do ole Coco the justice she deserves.

        On a side note, in the seventh grade I wrote a report entitled “Why Chanel Changed the World.” I got a C, but I had such fun researching!

    I love the whole imagery of this film, especially the short shorts, not so keen on the massive floral maxi dresses though.
