film to fashion inspiration: Wild Target

At first, Wild Target seemed like a wild card. I was a bit nervous to watch it because I hadn't previously seen previews for it until it showed up on Netflix as an instant stream movie. Completely unnecessary skepticism though: Wild Target is such a great film! Not only is the story line & dialogue witty and fun, but the fashion is beyond playful & perfect. 

Emily Blunt who plays Rose in the movie is such a bohemian, free spirited character & her fashion follows suit. She constantly wearing colorful outfits with edgy pieces & over the top accessories. It all works together fabulously. This movie is an amazing fashion to film inspiration because there are so many options to choose from, even if you only take one piece here or there from Rose's wardrobe and allow it to inspires yours.

I've gone through the movie & picked out scenes that show Rose's style best (trying hard to not give away too much of the movie!). Here's how you can dress like Rose or just have a jumping off point to be inspired by the spunky, fun, adorably dressed Rose:

Rose's dress paired with those burgundy tights is... genius.

It is so incredibly hard to pick a favorite outfit from this movie. Aren't they all brilliant? Here are some other stills of Rose's outfits to be inspired by:

This blouse + high waisted pants
Silver nailpolish + rings.
Look at those gloves with bows on them. So adorable.
