advent season; day twenty, love story and late nights

since the start of the christmas holidays, I have watched a film a night, working my way through a backlogue of recordings.

I'll go to bed each night, humming the theme tune and dreaming of the costumes.

So far I've watched
Love Story
Me Without You
and Pulp Fiction

Love Story, rather appropriately had me head over heels, and I'm now craving Ali McGraw's wardrobe from that film so badly..

Me Without You is great too, rather intense in parts, but it spans from the early 70s to the early 90s documenting the changing fashions and music along the way.

And Pulp Piction, is well, a classic.

Here is some Love Story inspiration, and note to self.. must find well cut red teadress!

That red dress!! Karen Walker did a great version a few seasons ago (I think Sienna Miller wore it).

Pulp Fiction is such a fave of mine. The jive scene may just be my favourite scene EVER
