A Title of Sorts...

The opening of the film festival was lovely - the film was An Education and everyone seemed to love it, as did I. It's set in the 60's, so for anyone who is interested in fashion, there are some really great pieces and inspiration in it, as well as a good, relatively light hearted tale (it's actually based on a memoir).

This is what I wore to it, plus a little cropped black woollen cardi that I borrowed from a collegue (it was freezing that night!). The dress has little black polka dots on the background, but my camera chose to blur those up for some reason, it also has a scalloped neckline, and deep v back which you can't really see that well. Sorry...

I've also only been to a few films after all that going on about how many I wanted to see. David was really sick on Saturday and is still sick, and now I think I'm startng to pick something up. There has been a nasty little bug floating around the office for the past few weeks and I'm really hoping I don't get sick for at least another three weeks - that gives me time to finish up the film fest and get art week over and done with, I'm organising a fashion show/wearable arts show that is happening on the 14th August!

So, I've only seen two movies besides the opening - Coraline, which I loved (beautiful animation) and The September Issue, which was really quite funny and eye opening. It really does come across that Anna Wintour really is only an editor and adds no creative value to the magazine except taking away other people's creative contribution to it.

Grace Coddington is definetly my favourite person in the movie. Her work is beautiful and she stands up for herself with Anna, unlike everyone else who seems to cower before her.

There won't be a shop update this week, nor will there be one next week either sorry! I also have awards to pass on and just want to thank Natalie for doing a little post about my shop. You should
head on over there, she has quite the inspiring story which she is sharing as it unfolds in her blog (and a cute little Etsy store of her own to boot!). Thank you so much Natalie!!

Any way, must get off,

  10. I really enjoyed The September Issue. And I agree, Grace Coddington came off so well. She's the reason why I love fashion. But Wintour is the businesswoman through and through.

    Perfect dress. The cut, the print, the colours. Gorgeous. It fits like a dream.
