The Dolce Vita Gentleman

Watch: Daniel Wellington Classic Canterbury Watch
Lapel Pin: DIY
Camera: Black Instax Mini 8

I'm on a roll binge watching classics this month mostly to find inspiration particularly in style and fashion.

This week I was so inspired by La Dolce Vita! If you haven't seen the film or have no idea about it, you need to educate yourself and go watch it right away! lol!

La Dolce Vita (which literally means "The Sweet Life") is a 1960's Italian comedy-love story directed by Federico Fellini. Its a long story as it is divided with a Prologue and 7 Episodes so I'm not going to elaborate that much. But there's a few things I want to say about it. If you're looking for a beautiful classic Black and White film that is sexy, sensual, sultry, intriguing, funny with all that jazz and pizzazz, then this is a film that for you!

I loved every single scenes of this movie! The story, the characters, the music and of course the fashion! This film is a big inspirational bucket!

The look I am wearing today is loosely inspired by the film. Now I know the film is all in black in white but there's something in my head that tells me that if this was a colored film the theme and styling of the clothes would probably be composed of strong and upfront colors.

With my own touch of style and a little research on Italian Mens Fashion, I wore a nice blazer with rose colored stripes, a red checked shirt and a bowtie. For the bottoms, I just wore a simple black trousers and then went all out in color with my shoes.

If you're still not sold on this look, well here's a black in white picture just in case you're wondering! :D

I also brought my Black Instax Mini 8 paired with a white Instax bag (ebay) and pretend that I'm one of those paparazzis trying to get a shot of Sylvia. I also made a very cool DIY lapel pin just to personalize this look and make it look more me. And of course, thanks to Daniel Wellington I wore this Classic Canterbury Watch to complete this look.
