Time To Dream

The past few days have really been a time for me to relax
and soothe my mind. I've enjoyed the silence of the afternoons as well as read through many plays while drinking copious amounts of tea.
I also managed to do quite a load of cooking for my family's first ever Thanksgiving feast!
(My parents come from Israel where Thanksgiving is not celebrated.)
I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday, by the way!

I also allowed myself to get lost in the magical world of film.
I watched numerous amounts of movies, such as Closer, Shakespeare in Love, and Moulin Rouge, all for the first time. I know, what almost 17 (in 2 months) year old girl has not seen Moulin Rouge! It's absolutely absurd!
Well, now that I've seen it, I can tell you that I
thought it was too brilliant to believe. Everything from the direction to the acting was exquisite and the story itself was so very touching, it broke my heart!
Closer was also quite good, even though I rarely watch those kinds of films.
(I'm not really sure why not . . .)
Even though I'm not a big fan of Natalie Portman's acting, I think she played her role pretty well and looked stunningly beautiful, as always. Also, Julia Roberts and Clive Owens were fascinating to watch as well as Jude Law, who I think is a brilliant actor, regardless of his good looks.
I'm serious!
He really is good. I've managed to watch him in several films now and he's really like a human chameleon.
Ok, well enough of my ramblings. hehehe

Today I went out for a little while and stopped by the Urban Sales.
Surprisingly they had many adorable things, but since I'm trying to save up my money for more plays and miscellaneous method books,
I only purchased these lovely shoes, which happened to be 80% off!
During This little break of mine, I've also had plenty of
time to collect some inspiration off of Lookbook and so I thought I should share some of my favorites.

Au Revoir Darlings!

Withering Afternoons

I'm off for Thanksgiving! Hurray!
School has been so stressful lately that I haven't had time to really
think much about this blog or how I want to continue with it.
So please bare with me for a little while!
Anyways, today I went home early and took a stroll in my neighborhood. The leaves are so magical at this time of year! They look like delicate fairy wings. I only wish it was colder around here. Rain would do the smoggy air some good.
(me being super tired after our huge-ass chem final)

I hope you are all doing well!
If any of you have questions or suggestions, PLEASE leave
a comment. I'd love to hear what you have to say.

Au Revoir

An Education

Today I met up with my friend/blogger, Eve, and
we went to the cinema to see An Education, starring Carey Mulligan.
Since we were in a hurry, I wasn't able to get a good picture of my outfit, but I did manage
to have Eve snap some shots of the details! Thanks darling!
First photo-me Last 3 photos-Eve.
Shoes:Vintage Dress: Vintage
This film is very charming. I feel like it is one could watch over and over again!
Carey Mulligan's performance is exquisite alongside the rest of the cast.
(oh, those english actors!)
Also, the fashion in the film was quite unbearable! All the
dresses she wore were so lovely and her hair styles were quite glamorous!
I really recommend you see this film soon and then purchase it on DVD!

Winter Wonderland

First of all, I would really like to apologize for
the lack of fashion/outfit related posts (since this is a fashion blog.)
I hope you guys are not getting too bored with my blog!
I do have good news, though, so hang in there! Today, my mom bought a Nikon D-700
and so after she figures out how to use it, she will be taking my outfit photos for me!
Hopefully my photos will be better, producing
more exciting posts for you to follow!

Towards the holiday season, I tend to make Anthropologie
collages with all the things I'm drooling over. So here is my latest:

I also can't bear the fact that I can't afford any of their shoes!
They are simply to die for.

The one thing I luckily can afford is their tights!
I am hoping to drop by this weekend and perhaps pick up these three little gems.
What do you think?
Have a lovely evening.
