Inspired by: Kill Bill

Hey there, lovelies!

I had the terrible misfortune of getting laryngitis for most of last week (which is the reason for the lack of posts last week) :[

It is pretty much the worse thing to happen to someone who is a professional persuader so sitting at home being unable to talk period was extremely frustrating. However, it did give me time to catch up on some movies I'd been wanting to watch or rewatch. Literally for three days, I only got out of bed to either go to the bathroom or get something to eat. Otherwise I sat in my bed watching every single Quentin Tarantino movie ever made.

A go-to favorite, Kill Bill, was particularly interesting to me because I never really gave the clothes the Bride wore a second thought. Because I have this blog now, I'm starting to get inspired by many different characters so I put together a few outfits she wore throughout both movies:

Yellow Jumpsuit: Ahh, the ever-famous yellow jumpsuit. The Bride wore this while fighting the  Crazy 88 gang, Gogo Yubari and O-Ren Ishii herself. Start with this mustard romper, paired with a thick belt. I found these yellow Nikes that look similar to the Bride's shoes. Finally, accessorize with this infinity necklace (a reference to the Crazy 88), and a studded clutch (a homage to Gogo's meteor hammer)
Fight against Budd: I could never get over how cool the Bride's jacket was. I've always wanted a fitted leather jacket like this and she styled the rest of her outfit flawlessly. And, (*spoiler alert*), if one is to be buried alive, it helps to look cute in the grave ;-)
Confronting Bill: I thought it was interesting that while the movie was made in 2003-2004 when mini skirts were the preferred bottom of choice, they had the Bride wear a maxi skirt. It's also great that maxi skirts have made a comeback so we can totally take advantage of the trend and wear this Bride-inspired outfit.
