Vintage Character: Lucy Preston

I’m a sucker for any shows or movies that incorporate time travel. Especially time travel with cute outfits from all different eras! I recently binge watched Timeless. On NBC, the show just wrapped up it’s first season.

When an experimental time machine is stolen, a history professor, a soldier and an engineer are tasked with capturing the culprit only to learn that he plans to rewrite American history and that each of them has a connection to his plan as well as the mysterious organization that funded the machine’s development.

The history professor, Lucy Preston, is played by Abigail Spencer and she’s whose fashion I am always excited to see. They’ve traveled from 1754 to 1983 and everywhere in between.

Top 5 Stylish Movie Characters

Love the breakdown of awesome Vintage Characters on Wear What Style!

Wear What Style

You’re likely to see plenty of people dressed up like iconic characters and celebrities this week in the spirit of Halloween, but I often recreate my favorite memorable looks without any special occasion at all.  While magazines and blogs usually point to models and singers as a source of style inspiration (which they undoubtedly are), I personally find more enjoyment in recreating unique looks that I discover in my favorite films.  From animated characters to over-the-top fashionistas and fashionistos, style inspiration can be found in just about any movie you watch. Check out my top 5 stylish movie characters and then create a list of your own!

1. Penny Lane from Almost Famous

Almost Famous is a movie that defined my teenage years.  It allowed me to experience my share of youthful rebellion and adventure from the comfort of my couch, but it also inspired me to chase my writing…

Vintage Character: Angela Chase

My So-Called Life might’ve been the best show ever. I will never understand why it lasted less than six months on tv. It has a cult following now and the fashion is just that perfect mix of Seattle grunge that we all wanted to attain in the mid-90’s. Claire Danes as Angela Chase was perfection.

Vintage Character: AHS Coven

American Horror Story’s newest season just started a few weeks ago and this time it’s centered on witches. I have to say ever since a family Halloween trip to Salem, Massachusetts and seeing The Craft, I’ve been kind of enamored with the world of the conjuring enchantresses.

Seems witches are having a comeback. Joining American Horror Story: Coven, there’s The Witches of East End on tv and recently Beautiful Creatures in the theaters. I’m sure there’s more sorcery on the horizon, but I’m more interested in the clothes. ;)

2013 Bonnie & Clyde

I recently hear about the cable miniseries event for Bonnie & Clyde coming in December and I am so excited! Not only do I totally dig the story of the infamous duo but the costumes are looking to be pretty epic.

Vintage Character: Bonnie Parker

Bonnie Parker of the infamous Bonnie & Clyde is actually a real person but has been portrayed so many times on camera, she’s become more of a legend and character. For an outlaw and a criminal, she had some pretty sweet style.
