Joyeux Noel

Last night I watched Joyeux Noel, a 2005 Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.  If you want to watch a movie that really captures the meaning of Christmas, go out and rent this film today!  It is set in 1914 and tells the story of  one Christmas night during WWI when enemies were able to lay aside their differences, visit each others trenches and celebrate the holiday.  Diane Kruger is beautiful in it, and I adore her clothes.  I have never paid much attention to 1910’s and 20’s fashion, but recently I have been drawn to their silhouette.  So, watch this movie, and Joyeux Noel!

Finally finished!

Remember months ago when I posted about a red ’40s shirtwaist dress I had been trying to finish for a while?  Well, I was hoping that posting about it would inspire me to get it finished.  That didn’t work, but I found the motivation when I decided that I wanted to wear the dress for my birthday.  I will have to take a proper photo of the whole dress soon, but in the meantime, here is a photo of me and my good friend Heather to give you an idea what it looks like.

And, I swiped this video off of Miriam’s blog because I think the clothes and the music are fabulous.  It really makes me want to start wearing 1920’s cloche hats!
