The Traveling Heroine of a Mysterious Romance

What is wrong with me???
For the past month I've been dying to watch some kind of 
detective/mystery/ the heroine wearing a hat&trench coat 
Something involving 
 and mystery, 
and the sad, dramatic sort of romance..
(See? I told you something was wrong with me.. =P )
Sadly, the only movie I could think of that would have any of that was Casablanca.

A movie I don't remember much of, 
but what I do remember, I didn't really want to see again...
So, instead of watching something, anything like that,
(I settled for Hoodwinked last night...
Close enough? =P ) 

I decided to do an outfit that I would wear if I was the traveling heroine of a mysterious romance movie. 
(Not the good, Princess Bride kind of romance, the sad, Roman Holiday kind. =P )
The name of this intriguing movie?

Well, that's for you to decide. 

There's just something so 
about black, wide-brimmed hats..
The movie heroine always has it pulled down just slightly over her eyes,
so she can watch people,
Mysterious, right?
I love the little flower on this particular hat.

Um, so yeah..
I do have a thing for trench coats..
Especially this one..
"Who knows the reason she was so inlove with this trench?
Is it because of the ruffled collar?
Or the creamy color?
Or perhaps there's another, deeper, darker reason..."
Haha, just kidding. 
That about covers it actually. 

So, just sayin'....
How awesome is the color of this shell?
Since we are on movies
I might as well say that I saw this and thought of that Princess Bride quote:
"With eyes like the sea after a storm"

Ooh, don't you just love this skirt?
It's so beautiful! 
It's like all of the most dramatically beautiful colors 
all swirled into one long, flowing skirt of happiness!

Yes, it's true...
I do think lockets are the most 
dramatically romantic/ mysterious
style necklace ever!
I love the Cross detail too. 
A very lovely necklace. 

The traveling heroine of this mysterious romance
Is obviously not going to want to
 lug around abunch of stuff in her purse.
Which is why this lil' wristlet is perfect for her!
Lipstick, passport, about $500 in cash.
"And a picture of her love"
was all she needed...
And her cell phone.
She'd die without it.. 

So, yeah...
I also have a thing for fingerless gloves...
But seriously,
Are these not SOO cute???

In case you were worried that our 
Traveling Heroine of a Mysterious Romance
didn't have room in her clutch for her clothes,
Then here is a very chic and classy 
Perfect for a lady to travel with..

Now, much as our heroine probably needs a moral booster,
She's not going to wear 4"heels while traveling.
Even I can't support her there.
(Even though I *might* have done that myself once..Twice..Possibly a lot..)


Be sure to comment below what YOU think next weeks outfit theme should be!
(And a movie title if you feel so led.)


  1. Party theme... like evening gown sorta thing.

  2. I love that trench coat!! And I have been really wanting to see Casablanca...

  3. Oh, I can hear you! I love Casablanca. I have actually really been wanting to check out Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall's movies. She's got that on-the-go kind of glamour down. *sigh*

    Have to disagree with you on one point, though. My kind of heroine wears high heels. ;)


If you like this outfit, let me know! =)
