Bits and Bobs



Sweater - vintage, Blouse - H&M, Jeans - James Jeans, Shoes - Via Spiga, Purse - vintage Burberry, Jewelry - courtesy of Shopthelook.net

I am perpetually inspired by the J. Crew catalogs that come out every month. The brand's signature boy meets girl / preppy meets edgy look and genius layering techniques always push me to dig back into my closet to find new ways to mix and match pieces that I've never tried together before. J. Crew is also known for their kitschy use of accessories, from layered bib necklaces to stacked bracelets. I, too, made use of my bits and bobs from Shopthelook.net around my neck, wrist, and finger. Playing dress up is so much fun! Also, I am working my favorite detailing at the moment - the peek of a collar from underneath a sweater. It instantly takes things from Plain Jane to eclectic.

I finally saw The Social Network today. It was a really great movie with never a dull moment. Jesse Eisenberg is definitely one of my favorite actors and has been ever since I saw him in The Squid and the Whale. But in The Social Network I really leaned towards the character of Eduardo. He didn't seem as hard or tense as Zuckerberg. And the actor who played him, Andrew Garfield, is really cute, as well as British! I applaud his display of emotion in the movie. Must make sure to check out his other work, like his role in Never Let Me Go with Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightly. The trailor gives me shivers, but I haven't gotten around to seeing it yet. What movies are you looking forward to seeing?

Beautiful outfit! I love your jewelry too :)
I recently saw the Social Network too and liked it. The performances were really good and the way the presented the story was very smart.
I can't wait to see "Nowhere Boy" which is a film about the early years of John Lennon :)

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

This is such a cool look: a little bit nerdy but still so chic. It's great to see a back-view, too - something often missing on red carpets, etc!

Rebecca said...

Andrew Garfield is stunning in Never Let Me Go! There's one scene, they show it in the trailer, when he gets out of the car and just screams. It could have easily been laughable but he does it with such raw emotion that you can't help but want to scream with him. Amazing.

Love the mix and match elements of this outfit, especially the necklace! The collar peeking through is so cute.
I agree, loved The Social Network, it really made me think how much socialising has changed over the past 10 years just because of sites like facebook - pretty incredible.
