Then I Must March To The Battery

This afternoon I was finally able to see Jane Campion's new film Bright Star. Being that it is about the tragic 3-year love affair the poet John Keats had with his muse, I kind of thought that I knew what to expect from the film. I was mistaken. Oh, don't get me wrong, I loved it, but by the end I was blubbering like a baby. I knew how it was going to end, and yet I was still so moved by the romance and sadness of it all. The costumes and lush British scenery coupled with Keats' poetry really made the film transcend the confines of what could have been just a sappy love story. I highly recommend it, but not for the faint of heart. Click here to see the film's trailer (and a glimpse of the star and my new celeb crush, Ben Whishaw).

What in blazes is going on?

I live by the beach. It's Sept. 24, just days after the official start of Fall. And it is over 80 degrees today. To put it simply, I am appalled. I just recently purchased these boots in ash grey:
Silly me, I was actually hoping to wear them in the near future. I know, I know, poor little beach girl so sad about the warm weather, but I swear it's a burden living without any clear cut seasons. My mind is saying boots and tights, but apparently the sun has different plans. Here's hoping for a freak cold front to move in.

And So It Begins . . .

As the inaugural post for this, my very first blog, I really have nothing noteworthy to say. I've decided to approach this as a sort of lifestyle endeavor. Having binged on fashion blogs all summer, I was definitely inspired by fashion to start this, but there is so much more besides clothes that I'm obsessed. Therefore, expect a little of everything - fashion (albeit bargain style), music, movies, books, rants, raves, the whole she-bang. As for this photo, it's what I wore to work this afternoon:

Yellow Imitation Wayfarers - Forever 21

Orange Cardigan - Mervyns
Green Deathcab For Cutie Tee - some concert years ago

J Crew Pencil Skirt - Goodwill

Wanted T-Strap Peep-toe Flats - Ross

not much for now, but definitely more to come . . .
