So, it was my 18th birthday on Friday.
I mean, there's a special quality these types of films hold, which ultimately, no 21st century film can surpass. I mean, I love the way directors use film-noir, which is very common in films made during the 1940s-50s.
Lately, I've been lucky enough to be given the chance to analyse these old films for my English module work. And ironically, most of these films I've been given the chance to watch star the beautiful, breathtaking and lovable Grace Kelly.
Y'know how you eat something big and think, 'this is all I'm eating all day' and then two hours later, you grab some lollies or something. That's the negative side of having too much junk food in your pantry. See, every easter my family invites our relatives over, and mum thinks she's expected to buy a whole lot of chocolates, soft drinks, lollies, chips etc etc, however, nobody eats them, which means that we're left with them.
I mean, this would be a seven year olds idea of heaven, but for some, not a teenagers.
On the other hand however, I received my half-yearly school report back, and topped 4/6 classes.

- Girl Power by Marisa Meltzer.
- Up in the Air by Walter Kirn.
But probably won't due to the gigantic load of year 12 work I received today.
Films I want to see:
- Inglorious Basterds.
- Crazy Heart.
- Valentine's Day.
- Rear Window.
Rather instantaneously, I decided to develop a collage that assembled something that relates to INSPIRATION. Not anybody's inspiration, but mine; just things I've seen over the past few months that have inspired me in one way or another (ie. Chanel, Chloe, An Education, vintage etc).
Oh, by the way ..... GO SEE AN EDUCATION. It's truly a formidable film, with sublime performances from Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard. Absolutely divine.
We stayed there for a month.
Okay, No Technology.
And believe it or not, I absolutely loved it! Therefore, I decided I'd give blogging a bit of a break whilst I focus on my Year 12 work for this year.
But, I missed it too much!
Therefore, I'm back. FOR GOOD!
LAST NIGHT I SAW TAYLOR SWIFT! AHH!
Yes, I am a fan of her's! She was absolutely spectacular; she even jumped into the crowd to give us all hugs! And no, I'm not exaggerating!
She is such a sublime performer.
And no, I'm not kidding.
Anyway, if she ever comes to your city/country; GO!
Other than that, how has everybody been?
So, recently I've developed a love for oversized blazers; especially those worn by Chloe Sevigny.
I just love Sevigny's minimalistic style. To me, minimalism is so exceedingly fashionable. I just love it. And, it's classic! I mean, look at Coco Chanel or Audrey Hepburn; their simplisty produced feelings of sophistication and worth. In fact, the other day I viewed the film Sabrina starring Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, and there was this extremely memorable line that really hit me. It went something like, "if you don't find me, i'll be the most sophisticated woman there" courtesy of Audrey Hepburn. And I mean, she looked AHHHMAZING! I was drooling for goodness sake. There was also this scene where Sabrina (Hepburn) was wearing these leggings and a baggy shirt and my mum commented on how similar some of the fashion now is to back in 1954, but this is because MINIMALISM REALLY CANNOT CHANGE COMPLETELY. I mean, it can transform slightly to suit our new modernised century, but altogether, minimalism is style. And as Chanel states, fashion fades only style remains the same. Minimalism is style, not exactly fashion per-se.
So yeah, these are just my personal thoughts as recently brought up during an intense discussion with my mother.
Also, check out French Connection! There new collection is to die for.
I LOVE IT!
