i watched the film 'an education' last night. my opinion?
ohmygodit'sreallygood. carey mulligan is so beautiful - she rocks the beehive for a few scenes - and she's an excellent actress. the whole movie was great though. i wish that kind of thing would happen to me - getting swept off of her feet by a charismatic rich young man.. british, too.. who takes her to paris! oh i could die.
so, with the help of carrie's beehive tut (although i don't have enough hair for a real one), some juliette greco, brigitte bardot, and the teenagers thrown in for good measure, and a 60's filter, i came up with my inspired outfit. to be fair, i did wear this outfit today, but little to no makeup and messy hair at school.
can you tell i like polka dots? i don't know exactly why i wore this when thinking of british, but i do know i bought this dress because it was similar to one popular with the british lady bloggers at the time, except theirs was this one from topshop with a black collar and spots, as well as a rised bustline and no sleeves. the dress is from wholesale-dress.net, and i love that site, though i must warn you the quality is always below average. the buttons on this dress are hot glued on. yeah.
while i was shooting my baby b came over and distracted me.
even he's more british than i am! how i envy his little bombay self. so darling though, right?
