I wanted to share Pour Porter's lookbook for two reasons - 1.) It's visually pleasing; 2.) I wanted to see if anyone else thinks the model could be Maya Rudolph's sister. Because I think so. I see a bit of a resemblance. Maybe it's just me. Anyway. Beautiful clothing. Where is my unlimited supply of money? Etc.
"The Shrimp" was 1960s model Jean Shrimpton's nickname... & is pretty much the greatest nickname of all time. Can I please marry someone whose last name is Shrimpton just so I can use it for myself? I mean. I eat a lot of shrimp, but not enough to merit the nickname simply through decapod crustacean consumption. Almost though. Nearly.
I was inspired to do this post after seeing a Shrimpton picture on Fancy Fine / The Swinging Sixties. Then I delved into the Shrimpy treasure trove that is the Jean Shrimpton tumblr, so all the images were found there.
Another cool name - Rosemary Bramble... who was photographer David Bailey's wife whilst he had an affair with The Shrimp.
There's going to be a movie about Shrimpton & Bailey, apparently. I'm sure it will be a fashion-fest.

I took part in Elise's Wanted This Week series at Pennyweight (go to the post to get links to the products / see what I said).
The Talented Mr. Ripley is one of my favorite movies (& I'm in the midst of reading the book right now), so I loved the post devoted to it over at all this happiness. I remember when I went to see it oh so vividly. I was 13 and I went with my (current) best friend. Her mom (who taught film / English / theatre at our high school) took us & I felt so sophisticated. & cool (because it was rated R).
