It has been far too long since we've talked about Robin Hood. One of these days I'll get around to doing more Robin Hood costume studies, but in the meantime...check out this amazing Robin Hood Tunic my friend Heidi made. I want one! Makes me want to finish up my Maid Marian costume. Maybe in August? :)
Hope your all having a lovely weekend!

Downsizing and a Perfect Match

I've been seriously downsizing as we're moving again (same spot, just switching houses) and I just don't like having lots of stuff anyway. I like simple. But other way I have been needing to downsize is my purse. Last year I bought a big bag at Forever 21 (see here) which I have loved dearly and has served me well by fitting all my lunch and books and such for work in one bag, but it's so much bigger than I really need now and I've been on the hunt for a good small purse for quite some time with no success in finding just the right thing.
Well, I was thrift store shopping with a friend one day and I was just about to settle on a purse that would be okay (I can't even remember what it looked like, that's how unimpressive it was) when I noticed this little cutie hiding behind all the other bags:

Not only is it small and's GUESS and it was only 2 bucks. Yes, that's right. :) So anyway...I'm super thrilled with my find and then I got home and found a bunch of Italian receipts in the pocket which excited me quite further. The little thing is a world traveler to boot...I think we'll get along great. :)
So anyway...that's my latest accessory love story...
Any of you had any great finds lately?

Updates and Alice

Hello friends! I know I haven't been a very faithful blogger, life has been so crazy and seems to just keep on getting crazier. I have a couple things I hope to get posted in the next couple weeks but then I'm not going to have much Internet access through the month of July so you may not see much of me until August.
I'm so thankful for all of you who follow this blog, you really inspire and motivate me! So thanks for sticking around. :)

Also, I finally saw Alice in Wonderland the other day. :) It was really well done, the filming and costumes were stunning. Weird, of course. I mean it's Tim Burton....but I like it. I usually like his films.
I must confess I don't like the book very much and never liked the movie growing up. So I'm not the best judge as an Alice fan, but I enjoyed it for what it was and I loved that there was so much of the Mad Hatter. That is the one chapter in the book I really did enjoy and I think Johnny Depp was fantastic.
All the costumes were great but I think seeing the Red Queen's gown on the big screen really took my breath away. AMAZING.
What did you all think of it, if you've seen it yet? Have you seen any other good costume films lately? :)
Hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
