Style Crush: Marla Singer

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I've been super-busy getting ready for school and being with my friends before we all split for schoooool.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love summer. I'm in love with summer. I would love to marry the wonderful season of summer. I would love for it to last forever. But in my opinion, it is autumn that has the best fashion. And this fall fashion season, I'm lookin' to Marla Singer for some style inspiration.

Helena Bonham Carter is one of my favorite actresses. She played Marla Singer, the twisted love interest of Tyler Durden in the 1999 movie Fight Club. She's a fantastic character in what is both one of my favorite books and favorite movies...I thought that with all of the gothy and messy looking lines coming up for fall, Marla could provide some inspiration.

She's like a bad-ass Audrey Hepburn.

Marla Singer: I got this dress at a thrift store for one dollar.
Narrator: It was worth every penny.
Marla Singer: It's a bridesmaid's dress. Someone loved it intensely for one day, and then tossed it. Like a Christmas tree. So special. Then, bam, it's on the side of the road.

Narrator: When people think you're dying, they really, really listen to you, instead of just...
Marla Singer: - instead of just waiting for their turn to speak?

So awesome.

In other news, I move into my dorm in three days. Yay, college!!!

Nikkidee! :]


  1. I love that film so much, I used to watch it over and over and knew the script almost off by heart! Sad I know but Chuck Palanuik sure can write them. His other work is well worth a look.

  2. Me too! And I agree, Palanuik is amazing. I've also read Rant and Diary but I would like to read more!
    thanks for commenting :]

  3. Great post; I'm a model and am portraying marla in a shoot this week so I was happy to run across this selection of images!

  4. That sounds awesome! I'd love to see the pictures after!
