I went to see Black Swan last week! I thought it was visually stunning but not as suspenseful as I had hoped (I wasn’t really surprised at all by the ending and had sort of figured from the get go that it would play out like that). But I did enjoy it. Anyway, here was my black swan inspired movie look (I kind of waffled on the shoes a bit).

skirt: Joe Fresh / shoes: Aldo / boots: Thom Brown / top: Gap

And this had nothing to do with anything but I’ve been thinking a lot about vacations lately and remembering the greatest one that I ever took – to lovely Edinburgh. Every since then I think about returning there at least once a week. Here’s why.

Lovin' the Black Swan look. :) Those aldo shoes are ridiculously cute btw.

We had originally booked a cruise on the Norwiegian Epic for April of this year, but now with the whole engagement thing we have cancelled it and are regrouping.

Have a great day!

Oh wow - those Edinburgh pictures are stunning!

And I've been thinking about seeing Black Swan - thanks for the quick review!

Gorgeous pictures! I've been wanting to see Black Swan sounds like a DVDer though!

Jessica said...

Hot skirt! I love that it's a pretty feminine shape in such a sexy print.

I'm disappointed to hear that Black Swan is predictable. It has such potential.

And you might have introduced me to my new dream escape!

So nice.

I saw "Black Swan" yesterday and loved it. Natalie Portman deserves an Oscar! I can't believe she did all of the dancing herself.

Courtney Erin said...

The dancing in Black Swan was amazing - and I agree that Natalie Portman (and Winona Ryder I think too) was incredible in it!

I had no idea Edinburgh was so gorgeous. Now I want to go there too. I do love castles, they're so european.

You're christmas tree is so pretty! I love the boots, even if they don't go with your black swan theme.

Happy New Year!

xo, Ashley

Pamela said...

Hmm, definitely my feelings on that movie (not that I've seen it, but I have an idea of what will happen and how it will pan out in the end).

Lovely leopard coat!

I agreee I had rather high or should I say...different expectations from black swan....I though there would be more exploring of Nina's wild side...not really psychopath side. The only part in the movie that I really liked was the dance of the black swan. :)

But I love your outfit, now I am thinking maybe we should have done something like that. The skirt is gorgeous. :)

Look forward to hearing from you

I'm dying to see Black Swan. Insisting that my boyfriend come with me because I'll get scared!


Mandy said...

Love this outfit. I'm going to see Black Swan tomorrow, and I can't wait! I'm seeing an early show, so I won't have the motivation to dress as stylish. I'm lucky if I make it out of my pajamas...
