Big Screen Style: American Hustle

       Recently I went and saw the movie American Hustle. The movie is really good and I would definitely recommend it.  I love movies like American Hustle that are set in the a past decade, as you not only  get a good story you get all the luscious era appropriate home decor and clothes. American Hustle is no exception, I was drooling over all the gorgeous costumes and sets in the movie. And appropriately so the movie made me fall head over heels for wrap dresses. Now don't get me wrong, I've always loved a good wrap dress they're easy, universally flattering, and always chic. But in recent years my adoration for them has waned a bit and my wrap dresses made their way to the back of my closet. But the way Amy Adams' character rocks a wrap dress in the film made me want to dust off my wrap dresses, take them for a spin, and add to my collection. Now in my opinion Jennifer Lawrence totally steals the film (although every one is really good), but she really only has one or two good fashion moments (that white dress is to die for). But Amy Adams' character was the fashionista of the film and all of her outfits were amazing. The only funny thing about pretty much all of her costumes is none of them allowed for a bra as most incorporate a deep plunging neckline. But she did rock a lot of more demure dresses as well, including a lot of DVF. You'll have to see the movie to see the outfits in all their glory but here are a few stills to convince you.

Obviously after watching the film I have a strong urge to go completely wrap crazy. I'm also really digging 70's style at the moment.  So here's a little collage of some modern American Hustle inspired options:
