What's in my bag?

Obviously I need three lipbalms! The bottom picture is what's in my make up bag. I'm trying to be better and change my make up every week so I use it all! The Elf eyeliner isn't very good, I've thrown it away today unfortunately.


My style icon


I don't think I have one specific style icon. I like the way these ladies dress and carry themselves...

Kirsten Dunst

Zooey Deschanel

Keira Knightley

Carey Mulligan

Clemence Poesy


Photobucket

Florence Welch

And a mix of characters in films and TV programmes. For example I went through a stage of trying to emulate Keira Knightley in Atonement when I was 20, which meant lots of high waists and sheer blouses and wishing I had somewhere to wear a green backless evening gown to.

An Education

(500) Days of Summer

Downton Abbey

Birdsong


Photobucket

Pushing Daisies


Photobucket

Clueless


Photobucket

Heathers

Mad Men

So my 'style icon' is not one person, more a mix of all of the above glued together with the vague idea of looking a bit French and 60's.

I can see how these influences have rubbed off on you. Why didn't I think of Clueless? I loved that film.

I agree! And I spend a silly amount of time wishing I had somewhere to wear a green backless evening gown too!

Incidentally I love Heathers, although I can do without most of the outfits. I did want to be Winona Ryder for a while though.
