Broken Embraces

I feel like I live my life on set these days - and my poor blog is suffering as a result. The dress code for this week's project is preppy, upscale, blueblooded, WASPy... in other words, we're talking neat shifts, strands of pearls wrapped in gold chains, quilted lambskin bags, fitted bouclé jackets and heirloom pins. Needless to say, I am in heaven.

On my night off yesterday, I went to a screening of Pedro Almodóvar's "Broken Embraces", and aside from being completely taken in by the film, I fell in love with most of Penélope Cruz's costumes - as if I hadn't been exposed to enough preppy fashion lately at work already. Below: inspiration for the rest of the week.

  11. Wow, thats so cool you have a weekly dress code at work (or am I getting that wrong..?!). I've lived in Connecticut for about 12 years now so I'm all for preppy looks when done right!
    Penelope is such a beauty, and she looks amazing in these snippets!

  12. Glad that everyone agrees these looks are fantastic!

    Jenny: I'm working on a film that takes place in the Hamptons... hence the "dress code"! We're pushing 16 hours for today now and all I want is to to home!

  14. I've never cared for Penelope Cruz -- thought she was highly overrated -- but she almost looks like Audrey Hepburn in some of those pictures.
