"It Had to Be You"

Yes, the title is referring to Frank Sinatra's It Had to Be You. Not only do I love the song but it is played in one of my favorite films of all time: When Harry Met Sally.I have said that I love WHMS several other times on this blog and after watching it last night, I just had to do a post on Sally Albight's (Meg Ryan)clothing because it is so timeless and classic.
Sally Allbright

If you are familiar with the film, in the beginning during their drive to NYC, Sally is dressed in khaki shorts, a yellow oxford button down and a navy cardigan. This movie was made in 1989, 22 years ago and this look is still perfect for 2011.
Cute, put-together, comfortable and very preppy. Love this look!
Towards the beginning of the film, she wears a tweed jacket with a white blouse and maroon bow around her neck. While this look is a bit dated, I still love the basic concept. In 2011 you could do a tweed blazer, a white button down, and a maroon bow headband with black pants and heeled loafers for a conservative and dressier or more business-like look.

When Harry Met Sally

These are some more of Sally Albright's outfits in the movie. I love that she wears basics and doesn't try to add anything extra. It just looks so clean and doesn't take away from Meg Ryan's natural beauty.
She makes a simple black skirt, red turtleneck, black tights, and black flats look so chic and put-together. During the winter months, this would be such an easy ensemble to throw together.

"I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible".- Harry Burns, When Harry Met Sally
Do you love this movie? Have you ever admired the classic clothing in WHMS? What are your favorite movies? Have a fabulous weekend... I'm seeing Taylor Swift tomorrow and couldn't be more excited!!

I do love this movie and I soooo love Sally's clothes. Her khaki shorts / yellow ocbd / blue cradigan is a look I rock a lot. One of my faves from the movie. And of course one of the best lines from a movie ever, that the BFF and I quote all the time, "Thin. Pretty. Big t**s. Your basic nightmare."

I LOVE this movie. It is one of my favorites and I watch it several times a year. I love everything about it, from the storyline to the clothes to the music. And I love all the older couples telling the story of how they met - they are just so cute! Love it! :)

I love When harry Met Sally, mind you I adore all the Meg Ryan films from the late 80's/1990's.
The wardrobe and hairstyling for this film were very clever the way they updated Sally's look throughout the ten years or so span of the film.
Lovely post, I might even watch this film again with my wife tonight:)
