You know what's great about Thanksgiving? Other than hanging out with your family and loved ones, the turkey, pumpkin pie, the National Dog Show (we always watch since no one in my house watches football). The best part about Thanksgiving weekend is chilling out. For some of us that means a good TV binge. One Thanksgiving weekend, visiting my grandmother in Bullhead City, Arizona (where there is absolutely NOTHING to do) I watched the whole Godfather Trilogy. It took forever.
Now, since we have on demand, and streaming, we can watch whatever we like, since you're probably into fashion (wink) I bet you have a great queue of fashion films on Netflix. There have been some great films released recently as well as some classics. Here's what you can watch this weekend:

Which fashion films would you recommend?
Amazing list! I know what I’m doing this weekend…
I watched Clueless this weekend! I didn’t even know some of these were “play instant” on Netflix. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for sharing. Great Selection
Breakfast at Tiffany’s and of course Sex and the City
The Devil Wears Prada obviously <3
Lets see……. Its all about the 60s
Darling starring Julie Christie
Belle de Jour starring Catherine Deneuve
Two For The Road starring Audrey Hepburn
If A Man Answers starring Sandra Dee
anything with Ann Margaret starring in it.
Those are some of my favorite films.
Such a great list! Definitely bookmarking this for future reference 🙂
Perfect binge list for the long weekend! 🙂
So many great suggestions here…some that I’ve seen, some that I definitely want to see. But I’m also thinking a “Sex and the City” movie mini-marathon might be just the ticket!!
Glad I’m not alone about only watching the dog show instead of football! 2 Days in Paris is one of my favorite “laugh out loud” indie movies; Julie Delpy is one awesome woman.
What about “the september issue”? 🙂
Ooohhh! Amazing list! I’ve been itching for some fashion related items to watch lately too. Thanks Jennine!
Thank you so much for this post!
I’ve been looking for a list of movies/show like this for so long!

Any Hitchcock movie! I love the Hitchcock ladies. If I had to choose a particular movie I’d probably go with Rear Window. Grace Kelly is divine. She looks just as amazing in cuff jeans and penny loafers as in a cocktail dress!
The Devil Wears Prada
The September Issue
Shopaholic Takes Manhattan
Some of my favorites
I would add a couple :)…
1. “Factory Girl” with my favorite Sienna Miller as Andy Warhol’s Superstar Edie Sedgwick. And 2. “Closer” with the fantastic Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Julia Roberts and Clive Owen.
Bless your fashionable soul Jennine! I will be checking this list off this weekend. ♥
Amazing list can’t Wait to watch the ones I haven’t seen thanks
I have three more good ones!! I loooved ‘Empire Records’ for serious 90’s nostalgia; ‘My own private Idaho’ to see young Keanu Reeves and River Phenix; and ‘Priscilla: Queen of the dessert’… if you think Hugo Weaving’s acting on V of Vendetta, Lord of the Rings and The Matrix, in Sabrina he’s on a rocket on this one 🙂 Enjoy!
