Movie Poster Inspiration Challenge- Vertigo

Posted on: April 12, 2013

This is the final day of this week’s challenge and I had just have to say it has been so much fun!  In fact, I may do this again on my own in the future.   I love doing challenges as it spices things up and gives focus to choosing an outfit and seems to really get those creative juices flowing.  

Now for the movie poster that influenced today’s outfit: 

Vertigo movie poster

I am not a huge Alfred Hithcock fan, so have to confess that I have not seen this movie.  I didn’t let that deter me since the colors were inspiration enough.   I should mention that the picture of this posture that was posted on You Look Fab for inspiration looked more red than orange.  It wasn’t til I went to put it in this post that I saw the difference.


If you saw yesterday’s post this skirt was one I thrifted this week and got so excited when I saw the circles, knowing I would use it for this challenge.   This is the sweater I had thrifted several weeks before that is from the same LOFT label with the black trim having the same circle pattern.  


With temperatures in the mid 80’s I felt inspired to remove the sweater…. I am working on getting these legs tanner using Jergens Natural Glow and this is after my second application.   With storms coming in today our temperatures are going to drop, so I actually might get to put together Spring Looks instead of Summer ones!!!


I must say that this week I have really kicked into serious workout mode and when I do this I commit!   I love the feeling of muscle burn and the natural high exercise gives me.  I am not just trying to lose weight, I want a toned body as I am a two and a half years away from turning the big 5-0 and want to embrace that milestone in top shape.

Dear Readers, I hope you have enjoyed this movie poster inspiration challenge.  Do you like to find things to inspire your outfits, have you ever tried it?  If not how about doing so?  You can start with a Painting,  A photo of nature, a beautifully decorated room, any object …

Gratitude:  I am grateful for a wonderful day spent with my friend and the lunch I am hoping for next week to catch up on neglected friendships.  I am grateful that Tom had some time off this afternoon and used it to get some things done around the house.  I am grateful that I have kicked into exercise mode and can’t wait to see the results!!! 

Food Journal

Notes: I use Nature’s Own Healthy White Wheat Bread that boasts more calcium as a glass of milk.  I also am switching from two yogurt servings a day to one and getting the other probiotic requirement from dark chocolate..  One piece of dark chocolate a day saves me 3 points from the yogurt and I get a piece of Chocolate everyday!!!!

Breakfast:  Omelet with Mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, italian seasoning and cheese w/green tea

Lunch:  Open Faced Sandwich – 2 Toast w/ slice of tomato topped with cheese – Broiled to melt the cheese  w/ green tea

Discovered Velveeta cheese slices for just 1 pt so use one on each toast for just 2 pts. Sometimes when items are doubled they can jump up an extra point, this one did not do so…

Snacks ;  Yogurt & Apple, 1pc  dark chocolate 

Dinner:  Grilled chicken salad w/olive oil & lt italian  (gotta use up that salad)

The way you styled the skirt is perfect. I like that you kept it simple and paired it with all black and white. You look very classy 🙂 Keep up the good work with your excercising routine. I am so proud of you and your motivation! Heather

AAAH, thank you! I am determined… being sick with flu in January and this last bout really spurred me on!

You really got lucky with those matching LOFT finds! They look so good on you. I love that you get just as excited as I do about thrift shop purchases. I’ve tried and tried to get my mother, daughter, and sisters interested and no luck. They see all the great things I find, they just don’t want to do it themselves. Oh well, all the more for me, lol!

When you find out how great thrifting can be and how inexpensively you can find great quality pieces of course you want to share it… It’s no coincidence that once you try it you keep going back. So glad you are having so much fun with it!

Love the outfit! If you like classic movies, Vertigo is a must watch!
