Can you believe this little dress still had its original shop tags on it when I got it?
It's August already, and to be truthful, I am counting down the days until summer and the end of the year. I don't think it's my imagination, but it is definitely lighter in the mornings, and the weekends have been teasing us with beautiful sunny weather. It's now only one month until Spring is officially here - so bring on September I say!
I went to see Coco Avant Chanel last night, and I'm a bit sorry to say that I really didn't love it. I'm by no means a film critic, but I really don't think it did Coco any justice. The ending seemed rushed, there was maybe 2 minutes of the film dedicated at the end to showing her making actual garments and then all of a sudden she was at a fashion show and the film ended. Much of it was about her early life, and if that was what they wanted to focus on, then they really should have cut the final scenes and just had a little paragraph at the end explaining what happened when she actually built her fashion empire.
I don't want to put anyone off, I'm glad I saw it, but like I said, I was dissapointed. But then again, I am one of those people that can get caught up in the hype of a film and then be drastically let down when my exceedingly high expectations aren't met.
I did however, also see Ponyo which was gorgeous and one I recommend you see. I also saw Cheri, which I didn't have any expectations for, and quite enjoyed. The ending was strange, but the costumes and set were lovely.
Right, that's enough of the film critic in me babbling...
