Anticipating Autumn & a Moodboard

I feel like I haven't been very active here this year, although, in my defense, it was for a multitude of reasons. I remember when I was just starting this blog I made a decision to write at least one post per week, to keep the space "alive", but now I think that seems a… Continue reading Anticipating Autumn & a Moodboard

Fashion Escapism: Keira Knightley’s Style in The Aftermath (2019)

Here I won't talk about how being stuck in a quarantine is depressing - although I could - but instead want to offer you (and myself) a little escape in the form of a post-wartime romance movie - with great costumes. To describe the plot briefly: the story revolves around a Britsh couple, Rachael and… Continue reading Fashion Escapism: Keira Knightley’s Style in The Aftermath (2019)

What’s Inspiring Me Right Now…

I haven't made a "moodboard" type of post for a while (I know I always say that), so here I jump in with a slightly different sort of inspiration board...

Style in Film: Mood Indigo (2013)

Have you seen the movie Mood Indigo by Michel Gondry? It's actually an adaptation of the novel "Froth of the Daydream" by Boris Vian. The film is quite surrealistic, quite weird, and visually, very pleasing... talk about a surrealistic world where you can wear as silly clothing as you want and not feel self-conscious about… Continue reading Style in Film: Mood Indigo (2013)

Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens…

The title of this post draws inspiration, obviously, from Maria's song in The Sound of Music. While I was making Sunday's post it occured to me that I could make a similar "moodboard" inspired by this lovely song. As I've said, early autumn has me thinking about simple pleasures and little things that make life… Continue reading Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens…
