If you follow me on twitter, you might've noticed that I spent most of this weekend watching old movies on Netflix. Truth be told, I spend a portion of every weekend watching old movies on Netflix. I really can’t get enough of movies like Carmen, Pinky and Imitation of Life. I’ve watched them a million times since I was a little girl and still can’t pass up a chance to watch them over and over again. Some of that has to do with the fact that my mom is obsessed with these movies and I have great memories of mommy and me classic movie nights. But some of it is simply because the outfits in these old movies are absolutely stunning. One of my all-time favorite looks is Liz Taylor’s khaki pencil skirt, beige button down, and red belt ensemble in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Although I have major issues with the setting and social context of the movie, I must admit that I LOVE this outfit. So much so, that I decided to wear an updated version of the look for a dinner date with the hubs. There’s something about this mix of colors that always has, and probably always will, scream chic. After all, classic never goes out of style.
