In my little dream-land where I walk through Oxford with a coffee in one hand and a handsome british boyfriend in the other, I have a world where my best friends are such as Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, and Emma Watson. Well it's official, Alexa Chung is allowed to join this imaginary friend circle. As a model, tv host, and journalist she has been extremely successful, and became a fashion icon quite by accident. With her relatively new line at Madewell, her fashion profile is exploding, see for yourself.

I hope that you find some way to read the letter portion of this, you really must. So the idea is that it's supposed to be a dear john not of disgust from this man to a girl, but the point is that's it's just a fail-safe in case the girl's father finds the letter. In actuality, if you read every other line of the letter starting with the first, it's quite touching, and completely ingenious. So read it once all the way through, and then again alternating lines.

I'm so excited that it's autumn! Okay, it's not official for a few more weeks, but the trees are starting the change, and the nights are chilly...so I proclaim it truly autumn! anyway, here is a lovely late fall-themed photo shoot by the very talented Ditte Isager (whose shoot I first came across in the wedding blog greylikesweddings.wordpress.com) In my mind the shoot tells the story of a poor soldier who marries his childhood sweetheart after being sent home for wound recovery during the civil war, at first they are traveling with what little they have and set up camp outside, but eventually they realize this really won't do with winter approaching, and find a house that was abandoned during the fighting and begin to make it a home with their sparse possessions. It displays all the lovely bohemian chic of a very romanticized poverty (not to mention some very 2010 haircuts and heels)

Since I completely redesigned and rebooted my blog into a very fashionable, lovely bit of La Revolution, this will be my 100th post! wooh! To celebrate this momentous occasion, I'm going to have a bit of a random post. I've had that song 'My Favorite Things' from The Sound of Music stuck in my head, and I though I'd just post some pictures that make me incandescently happy.
Just as The Edge of Love inspired my Spring/Summer wardrobe, Keira Knightley has again influenced my fashion future. The new movie Never Let Me Go (release sept. 15) has exactly what I want for my fall look; lots of layered sweaters, tall socks and boots, and relaxed waves with bangs. The movie is based off a book that was considered the best novel in a decade, and one of the 100 best books since 1925. but it just LOOKS beautiful. I especially love the part where the lady says "we didn't need to look into your soul, we needed to see if you had souls at all." and Carey Mulligan's voice at the end is hauntingly beautiful. I love a movie that questions what makes us human, and this does just that.
