It has finally gotten cold enough to pull my winter coat out of the closet! It is so warm and I love the bright red colour. My original outfit plans included a 1920's style dress but it was just too cold (we had to walk for about 45 minutes to get to the theater, since I'm too cheap to pay for the subway). Instead I went for a more subtle early 1930's influence.
|I bowed my lips, using my Ruby Woo lipstick (and cherry liner) which perfectly matches my coat!|
Coat: Novelti (purchased at an independent store, which has since closed down)
Hat: Made by me using the Sweet Bea pattern (available in my Etsy Shop)
Shoes: Ariat (these are actually riding boots, and by far the best boots I have ever owned)
Pants: Max Studio (purchased at the same place as the coat)
Sweater: Costa Blanca
Necklace: Made by me. I simply wrapped a long strand of faux pearls around my neck three times and added a brooch (from Michaels)
Gloves: They are from an independent coffee store in Warkworth whose name I have totally forgotten...
The movie itself was amazing! I was worried I would be disappointed but it was great. Even Britt liked it, and she isn't a big fan of old (silent) movies. I realize it wasn't technically an old movie, but it certainly felt like one. The costumes were lovely and the cinematography was very well done. There was also a lot of subtle references to old movies, which were fun to pick out but not essential to the plot. If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend it. It's a shame more theaters aren't showing it!
