Winter Wardrobe

As I sit here typing this post I am dressed as I would on a warm summer’s day – Besides crisp evenings, winter has really not made a full appearance yet. I am a summer girl, and so I am by no means complaining. Our coldest month is usually June, and since that begins tomorrow, I anticipate the arrival of colder days. That being said, I am ill equipped for winter - my winter wardrobe is far from inspiring…

Waking up on a cold morning would be much easier if my cupboard was filled with a few items from the J.Crew Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection.

The Great Gatsby

My last post (which was way too  long ago) used an F.Scott Fitzgerald quote - how very fitting that my next post is related to Fitzgerald ...

People often argue that movies are never as good as the books they are based on, and most times I agree…  However, when the vivid imagination of Baz Luhrmann is responsible for the transition of a classic novel into what can only be described as a visual explosion –I’m excited!!

I read the novel as a set work in high school, and thoroughly enjoyed every page. Set in West Egg, Long Island, during the roaring twenties, Nick Carraway gets caught up in the seemingly lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon the sparkle of Gatsby's world fades and madness, and tragedy unfold...

The movie was released this past weekend, I cant wait to see it!!
