Now, I won't tell you of anything in the movie, but you simply must see it.
So anyway, getting to the actual title of this blog. While watching the moment I realized I wanted two things, one of them being a tempestuous romance, and the other being a beautiful dress. The outfits in the movie were rather beautiful.
It really is such a good movie. I love wartime romance movies. They're so, well romantic. And the cast works so greatly together. Not to mention, James McAvoy is very rather hot in this movie. Too bad he is totally digging Keira Knightley.
And if I can't have one of Keira Knightley's dresses I can most certainly deal with this dress from Anthropologie which is absolutely lovely.
A while ago, I was sitting in my bedroom and I was like, you know what would be so cool? Glasses. And I realized I wanted glasses, crazy, eh? I know. But then I considered getting fake glasses. Like these ones from American Apparel.
Or these ones. No, just kidding.
But then I realized that everyone at my school knows I don't actually need glasses, so if I just came in with a fake pair, then they would know something's odd. So then I gave up on that idea. Then, a couple weeks later I went to get a physical at the doctors office and she claimed that the vision in my right eye was "stupendous" but my left eye was "atrocious." Hearing this, I covered my right eye and looked through my left only and realized I could read nothing on the posters in her office. I had never noticed before. And the vision utilizing both my eyes is rather okay. But the doctor said I actually needed glasses.
So this weekend, I went out to the eye doctor with my mum and ordered glasses. I wanted a pair of Marilyn Monroe's giant cateyed glasses from "How to Marry a Millionaire" but alas, they were none to be found.
I ended up getting ones that are similar to this.
Boring, I know, but there were really no great ones. I mean, there were like only 2 red pairs and a few purples, but nothing really exciting there.
Now, I'm off to do homework, all of which I saved for Sunday night.
P.S. GO GIANTS!
I love the shape of this dress. You can't really see it, but it has a nice full poofy skirt. The seams in the bodice are really nice as well. It adds structure and the bows on the shoulders soften it up a little. Her hat is pretty nifty too. It's like a little crown and I'm pretty sure you could fill it with M&M's or something as snacks. Also, I think wearing gloves and "party yarmulkes" (as me and C have come to call them) should definitely come back in style. Audrey also has a great wardrobe in Funny Face. She gets turned into a high fashion model and naturally gets the best designer clothes.
I like the bell shapes of the skirts in the second and third picture. Also, I feel a deep need for a striking red dress. All this researching on Audrey reminded me of the Golden Age of Couture exhibit that I really wanted to see. It showcases beautiful dresses from the 40's to the 50's and was not in any museum near me.

Recent buys of mine:
1. Finally, a pair of "Risky Business" sunglasses from fredflare.com. I was debating between red, white and black. White were sold out and I was fond of the red, but not fond enough. So I got black. $10
2. Finally, again, a pair of pink '80's splatter sunglasses from fredflare.com. And, yes, they do come with a braided sunglasses cord, so what? $9
3. A threadless.com T-shirt "B.F.F.'s" So sick. $17
Girl crush of the moment (no, neither of us are attracted to girls): Charlotte Gainsbourg
Guy crush of the moment: John Krasinski
Teen Vogue had the most adorable Valentine's day shoot ever. My goodness the models were so adorable. Now, I wish I had a boyfriend like that. Well, how about I work on getting a boyfriend frist. That sounds good. But this had to be like, one of, if not THE most favorite photo shoot of mine. And I am smitten with jealousy over everything in it. The couple, her beauty, his looks, her clothes. Gah.
Oh goodness, I love beches. And her outfit, could you get more adorable. The headband is Bernstock Speirs and several others by the same designer are featured. They are fun and quirky hats and headbands. When I googled Bernstock Speirs, I found the website but there was no way to view the items. Bummer.
This photo is among my favorites, although the male model is jumping (which is seen now in almost every issue of Teen Vogue). The girl has another Bernstock Speris headpiece.
If I were to wear glasses, I would wear those ones. Another one of my faves. And look at him. Cutie.
This looks exactly like a place I visited in Ireland in Dingle. And the model is jumping, again.
How cute. My God. I want a boyfriend so bad right now. I'll live.

This is a pretty metallic Vera Wang dress. I wasn't so sure about some pieces in this collection, but I really liked this dress with the drapey silhouette. And it looks really comfy.
These are just some sweet silver flats with a hidden wedge from Delia's. The black ribbon is super cute. In short: adorable. Also, square (ish) toe, nice.
Converse! Converse alone are some of the best sneakers out there, but when you add sequins, how could they not be better? I have some metallic silver Converse, but I have got a hankering for sequins . The only problem is sequins, in my experience, are tricky because they fall off a lot.
The dress below I think is from Blumarine. I liked the pattern and the color (they also had it in yellow and pink).
Okay, I did not like the Dsquared runway show very much, although I have to admit some of their outfits weren't so bad. Not only were some of the models bra-less in sheer stuff which I'm not a big fan of, some of them were holding cigarettes which was just weird.
This is a neat-o little necklace from Fred Flare. I think it should come with a little key that matches that you can give away to whomever you please.
This is a funny, cute tee from Threadless that is a design that has to be voted to be printed. So I hope a bunch of people say they want this shirt because I certainly do! For some reason jockeys and horse racing fascinate me. Last summer or the summer before I read Seabiscuit and saw the movie and loved them both and it really made me want a horse.
