This week we're honoring (and copying) the costume design in Alfred Hitchcock's film, The Birds. We still have no idea why those birds were on a rampage (birds will be birds), but watching those black crows tear up Tippi Hedren's perfect, pale green suit was a bit hard to watch.
Her '60s California socialite look was made complete by all of the right type of ladylike accessories. In fact her whole pastel look is right on point for this season. So is the movie itself if you're in the mood to be absolutely terrified. Here's how we'd get the look if we were the ones being viciously attacked by birds.
