One of the most aestetically pleasing movies of all time has to be Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. Despite the beatings it received from critics, the film does exactly what it’s supposed to do, offer a look at the French queen in an updated way with cool post punk beats.
How can a film laced with Ladurée confections and custom made Manolo Blahniks not be just the most beautiful freaking thing that you have ever seen!? From the piled high pink pastel and sometimes boat bearing wigs to the silk embroidered garments, grown-up dress up players would lust over, this film has some serious eye candy.
I remember watching this by myself when I was home sick from school. It’s a good movie to watch alone for the first time so haters don’t taint it for you (Twilight should be watched alone too). It was a movie I could see a lot of people hating, the acting is a bit dodgy really, but I didn’t care. I knew it would be my spring go-to movie. It was lovely and smart and picturesque. It made me want to be rich, royal, and young in the 1700s complete with garden parties, and hide and go seek at Versailles.
If you have not seen this movie, I would recommend that you do . It also has a super dope soundtrack! Happy movie watching!
These are hardly historically accurate for “Le Mode” of Marie Antoinette’s time, so I took some modern liberties in true Sofia Coppola fashion. I would like to see what a modern Marie Antoinette would wear. I see her now, parading around in designer duds, floral crop tops, perhaps even some studded Jeffrey Campbells, all with the same lovely pastel color palette, living beyond her means, making everyone mad. I feel sponsored by top shop, but I love these pieces.
I don’t know how you can even begin to try to replicate Versailles decor without a proper chandelier. If I were to decorate a Monarch inspired palace these items would suit the decor quite nicely. Not too lavish, just enough. I think that even Lisa Vanderpump would approve of these pieces. Wink, wink.
Crosley Radio Cruiser Turntable Turquoise – I have an old record player, but it is finally broken and it was not portable. I like the idea of being able to take my player in tow to the beach! I wanna have a beach blanket bingo! This record player will do perfectly for a faux vintage lifestyle.
“The Cambridge Satchel” – These satchels are iconic. They are to bags what the moleskin is to notebooks. I just want to fill this baby with leather bound journals and calling cards. This mint color is on trend and will be lovely for centuries.
“Take a Dipper Necklace” – I love the little dipper! It’s the constellation that is always easy for me to find. I am a huge fan of dainty pendants. I’d like to rep the Lil’ D on my neck.
In Bonjour Dreams Pillowcase Set– French writing is always fun and chic. I do parle the french, so I like to keep frenchie things around me. These pillows have a great typography charm and they would go with any bed spread set.
“Living Myth Perfect Jewelry Holder” – This ‘jackelope’ creature is very curious to me. I swear they are mythical, but Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty suggests otherwise. I have been loving using little dishes as homes for my jewelry. This one is both pretty and fun – it twill look nice on my dressing table.
Charlotte OLympia Tumbled Suede Sleeping Kitty Loafers – These cat flats are PRI-CAY, but a girl can dream. I love the luxurious velvet and kitty print. It’s the perfect combo of kitch and chic. I really am not a fan of les cats in general, but I like them on clothing and fanny packs – call me cray cray, I don’t give a sheist.
