So, hopefully you had bigger plans than just staying in and watching movies on Halloween night, unlike this FF blogger. But, a night of being comfy and enjoying a bowl of popcorn on the couch did allow me to realize one thing, you really can find fashion inspiration anywhere. And, if the Grey Ant line of fashion forward high waist jeans was inspired by Jamie Lee Curtis's character in Halloween, then why not look for style inspiration in our favorite scary movies?
Movie 1: Nightmare on Elm Street. 1984
Not only does the first Nightmare on Elm street feature a young Johnny Depp, but it also features classic preppy looks. Think oxford shirts, sweater vests, chinos, and natural makeup palettes.
Movie 2: Rosemary's Baby 1968
A classic. Especially when talking about hair. Who can forget that great Vidal Sassoon cut?
The movie also features great mod styles. Think clunky shoes and babydoll dresses.

No joke, I have a hoe-down to go to this weekend that requires this shirt. And I may have to wear it to less country occasions as well.

Yes, our childhood is now being mined for fashion splendor. Look to Tia Carrere for advice and start practicing your Stairway to Heaven. And if you don't know what we're talking about, you make us feel old

With bennykelly, Kelly combines simple classic apparel design, for both men women, with post abstract graffiti expressionalism (i.e. stencils and screens of a limited run). Every garment created is piece dyed and handmade, giving each a truly unique one-of-a-kind look. Kelly has also pushed to incorporate the overall guide of sustainability when producing our garments. This is one of the reason bennykelly runs such a limited series of most designs, the limitation of recycled or reused supplies.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a sneak peak at bennykelly's Fall/Winter line, which will premiere at the "Mineral" fashion show at The Pretty Penny on October 25th.
Bennykelly is also one of the designers that will be featured in the Pretty Penny Fashion Show on October 25th. Stay tuned for a behind-the-scenes look at what bennykelly will send down the runway.

What do you think of this 90's revival? Doesn't Anne Hathaway remind you of Johnny Depp here, circa Benny and Joon?
