Keira Knightley as Anna Karenina

I would like to note my love of Period Pieces in regards to film. It has always been a dream of mine to relive historical eras in regards to social culture, and of course, style. It is fascinating to watch the style timeline evolve over many centuries, and I adore watching historical style come to life on the big screen. That’s why I’m excited to see the film adaptation of Anna Karenina later this year.

I cannot wait to see the showcase of elegant, 1870’s aristocratic style, especially that of the title character. Anna is beautiful, has passion, and is the epitome of an aristocratic wife. And man, does that girl know how to dress! In my opinion, I believe that Keira Knightley is Anna. I cannot wait to see the vision twice-Acadamy Award nominated costume designer Jacqueline Durran dreamed up for the film.

Maybe an Oscar for Best Costume Design will be in store for Ms. Durran?


my ecstacy to see the film will help me overlook the fact that the Russian accents are missing.

Autumn Adorations

Happy Sunday to you all!

I cannot believe that the first day of October is upon us.

I love the month of October. I adore the crisp air of Autumn and the changing of the leaves into beautiful hues of red, orange, and gold.

I also adore the change of weather and change of wardrobe.

I’ve always been a lover of layering, and it’s finally the time of year to seize the opportunity!

Over the weekend, while not studying for my State and Local Government course examination, I’ve once again been perusing and “pinning” my new found favorites on Pinterest.

Pinterest is the perfect place to browse for inspiration for fall ensembles and being able to categorize them all into one place, or “board.”

Here are some of my must haves for this fall courtesy of Pinterest, which is quite a lovely site, and quite addicting.


Quick Update

Happy Friday!

I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA for the past month, I’ve been busy with the start of my second year of university.

This semester I’m taking a lot of political science courses. I find politics to be fascinating, especially since I’ll be voting in my first presidential election in a matter of weeks.

“Who I’m voting for?” you may ask. Well that’s a secret I’ll never tell.

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a NEEDTOBREATHE concert. It was fantastic.

After the concert I met the lead singer of the opening act, Parachute.

I’ve been into red lipstick lately.

I promise to start posting more often!
