I've been on a road trip--the cause of my delayed posting--and as I headed west towards Texas I couldn't help but think of America's cowboy heritage. Who better to embody the American spirit than Ralph Lauren? His collections are often infused with touches of western wear with details like turquoise, silver and Native American prints.Ralph Lauren even showcases the style in his own wardrobe, as seen here in chaps with a touch of fringe.
So here's to the days of the wild west with Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley and the untamed landscape.
Juicy Couture's ads bring the spirit of Rococo and Neoclassical eras with an edge of modernity. Who would expect glamorous gowns and fur wraps with tattoos? I absolutely love the play between the historic and modern.

Continuing with the wedding theme, I thought I'd pose the question, What does the perfect wedding look like? Though there isn't just one answer, I thought I'd share some of my favorite movie weddings; each beautiful in different ways.
Clear blue waters, wildflowers and sunshine make the perfect Greek wedding.
Perhaps dancing and singing through the landscape of Paris like Audrey Hepburn with Fred Astaire would make the perfect wedding. From Funny Face.
An old world romance full of lace and tiaras.
Vintage versus Vera...A classic look was worn by Anne Hathaway, while Kate Hudson wore a Cinderella gown by Vera Wang. How to choose between two beautiful dresses/looks?
Some of my favorite wedding looks were worn by SJP in Sex and the City for her wedding and in her Vogue shoot.
I created A Chichi Life as a creative outlet for me to explore fashion and its connection to art and history. I hope you find plenty of beauty and inspiration here, and of course a dash of chichi style.
