two movies and an outing

ahh, school is so...time-consuming. i obviously lied when i said i'd post on monday. i've had a pretty eventful week, though. not only with school and everything related to that, but i treated myself to a couple of lovely movies and one really great night.

on thursday, to make up for the fact that i couldn't be at nyfw this week, i went to dallas' version of fashion's night out. you see, since vogue has basically forgotten how lovely a city dallas is, we conducted our own fashion's night out! there was a screening of valentino: the last emperor at my favorite restaurant (where they know me hehe), there was a bunch of activity at neiman's and hugo boss and other stores, and a general sense of "dallas is fashionable, too!". i got all dressed up (drop-waist dress and mary jane heels and lace) and joined in on the festivities. first, we went and ate and watched a little bit of valentino. then, we stopped by barney's and talked to our friends about what collections we were excited for and how amazing dries and burberry prorsum are. then, we went to neiman's, mainly to get the fno shirt (which is the most comfortable thing ever)...they had a life-size board game type thing where you could win a $1000 shopping spree, a funny dj, and FOOD everywhere. there was also an abundance of obviously-important-in-the-dallas-fashion-scene people there. anyway, it was a fun night, and even though it's not paris, russia, greece, london, new york, brazil, or china, there's still a great sense of community in dallas' small fashion scene.

this is me in the shirt...it's very swingy! haha.

i watched the edge of love the other night. it's such an amazing movie...and the clothes are just lovely! i really think i should have been alive in the 40s. i love the florals and cardigans and boots and stockings.



oh, and i think i'm the only person in the universe who likes kiera knightley.

i also watched marie antoinette, which i had been wanting to see for an extremely long time (i guess since 2006, when it came out). it was really gorgeous and i don't know why people complain that it's slow. maybe i was just entranced by the pretty-ness of the whole thing and wishing that i had endless tarts and petit fours, but i love love loved it.



i for one loved that sofia coppola kind of made her own interpretation of marie antoinette's life; it was like a 21st century marie antoinette.

I've always wanted to see Marie Antoinette, apparently the soundtrack is fantastic. I've not seen The Edge of Love either, but I might look it up now.
Dallas fashion week sounds pretty awesome, I don't know why, probably because of Dynasty but I always think of Dallas being full of shoulder pads and big hair. My bad!

Love the T shirt!

Marie Antoinette is ok as film ut has the most beautiful wardrobe and design ever.

See you soon

that's awesome that dallas had its own fashion's night out. totally cool.

i've wanted to see edge of love. and i like kiera knightley. maybe it's b/c i LOVE atonement, but who knows...

and marie antoinette is amazing. the soundtrack itself is so brilliant that if the movie was horrible, the music would carry it.

I had no idea Dallas was such a cool city, that is awesome that you made your own Fashion's Night Out!

Still haven't watched The Edge of Love; was so excited when it came out just for the costumes which are the perfect autumn wardrobe inspiration..

and I'm with you on the Keira Knightley subject; I'm not head over heels in love with her, but I really can't understand the sheer hatred she seems to induce in some people!
