The Artist and a day in Toronto

I've finally got out of the house and done something blog-worthy!! I was supposed to be having a big gettogether with my friends from highschool but that fell apart at the last moment. I was rather upset and my mom took pity on me and offered to pay for Britt and I to go see The Artist in Toronto. Obviously I jumped at the chance! I will get to the movie in a minute but first, outfit photos!

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!



Outfit Details:
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!

  1. You look fabulous! I love your ensemble. They had a preview for The Artist on My Week with Marilyn and I wanted to see it, but then I completely forgot about it and it's not playing anywhere anyway. I'm glad it was at least a good movie!

  2. I love your outfit! You can really work the 1930s, especially the bowed lipstick. Kudos for having the gumption to wear that! Wearing red lipstick, I think, is really courageous. :)
