Tippi Hedren's character, Melanie Daniels from Hitchcock's The Birds, managed to stay stylish even after a long, unexpected trip to Bodega Bay. Looking prim and proper and still stunning after being attacked by seagulls and a future mother 'n law, now who wouldn't want to recreate such an iconic look. I mean if Miss Daniels can make it work for her after all that, couldn't we?
Here is a traditional take on her look:
All pieces are authentic 1960's: (1) Viva Vintage Clothing,
There are days where Melanie wore her gold necklace and days she didn't but it's a simple yet gorgeous piece to have. She also has her handy dandy cigarettes with her especially when she is stressed out (ie. dead seagull on Annie's doorstep), but I am not a supporter of smoking so that will be up to you.
Here are some amazing dresses that have been inspired by birds (the animal not film):
If you feel inspired by Miss Daniels outfit, you can throw some black crows on yourself (not real ones please! hehe) and you have an instant Halloween costume!!!
This post was loads of fun to do. Let me know if you like seeing a fashion post after a film review-I would love to do more!!
