Film Inspiration: Fur

I'm only halfway through watching the film Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus and already I had to take a moment to obsess over the wonderful wardrobing in the piece. Nicole Kidman is an actress who I always believe is stunningly beautiful, but she looks particularly fetching in 1950s day dresses. Perhaps it's because these dresses are rather flattering to the female form. They are, at the moment, my favorite vintage purchases. The film itself is deeply engaging and while a fictional glimpse at photographer Diane Arbus' life and work gives a inspirational look at the fringe revealed and the "ugly" turned beautiful.

So here's a look at Fur for some shopping/lusting inspiration.
