My Cousin Vinny - unlikely fatshion muse

Due to my current less than mobile status, rather than my normal gallivanting and shenanigan filled weekends...this past weekend was filled with visits from friends and TELEVISION! I'm not exactly a tv enthusiast as I can't pay attention to the tube for long but while flipping channels I came across cult classic "My Cousin Vinny".

How could I pass that up? So, I'm mildly amused and watching the flick when I noticed I was paying more attention to Marisa Tomei's character Mona Lisa Vito's wardrobe than the story line. Tough and sexy with a dash of sass and edgy accessories. YUM! Yes, there is a resurgence of 80's/90's fashion and rocker chic is certainly having its fashion moment but I was really fascinated by how relevant the fashion in this 1992 movie was for my current wardrobe desires.

Black skinny jeans, cropped leather, body con dresses with cool cut outs, studs and grommets...from the blonde streak in her brunette tusseled locks to the sexy boots, all I could think was I want all of this stuff!

Here's what's happening now: Dress - Evans, Shades - Alexander Wang, Black Mini - Torrid

White Studded Faux Leather Jacket- Torrid, Head Wrap - Babooshka Boutique, Pink Camera the grandchild of the pink camera Marisa is holding in above picture - Sony Cyber Shot

Lace insert tights - Asos, Chain earrings - Shopbop.com, Black and white jacket - Evans, Boots - Alexander McQueen
