Now Channeling: Ali Macgraw in Love Story

I have certain movies and shows that I watch for certain seasons.  Even though I no longer have to "go back to school", when autumn rolls around I tend to gravitate towards collegiate movies/TV shows (Felicity, St. Elmo's Fire, etc.).  "Love Story" is another one of those movies.  The 1970's flick is, well, a love story, about a wealthy Harvard student and a working class girl who meet in college and fall for each other despite their different backgrounds.  The movie is a sad one, but if you're in the mood for a tearjerker, you should check it out.  Ali Macgraw's character, Jenny, has the classic parted-in-the-middle long locks and her wardrobe is full of cozy fall knits and wool coats.

Of course, to get Jenny's look, you can grab up some authentic vintage.  Here are some Etsy finds that will do just the trick:
1.  1970's Jonathan Logan collared dress via Larkspur Shoppe
2.  toffee leather campus boots via Scottiena Canoe
3.  wool bucket hat via Rapscallion Vintage
4.  camel peacoat via Miskabelle Vintage
4.  1970's cream turtleneck sweater via Zinnia Ridge Vintage
5.  red plaid Pendleton skirt via Dronning

Wool coats, turtleneck sweaters, leather boots and plaid accessories...sounds divine, right?
It definitely serves as great outfit inspiration for the cool fall weekend ahead.  Be sure to stop by our booth at the District Flea, if you're in the area!
