Little bit of leather, a lot of lace

(lace top-thrifted, shorts-thrifted, shoes-ralph lauren, jewlery-thrifted/flea market/vintage, bustier-thrifted, belt-something left over from when I was a kid)

This outfit was totally centered around the bell sleeved lace cardigan. I'm so into bell sleeves. I saw these pictures from Winter Kate Fall 2011 on refinery29 and I was particularly enamored with these 2 looks. Black bell sleeved top? The search is ON!

The Clock didn't let down, it was very engaging and even funny. There were many scenes that caused eruptions of laughter from the audience because of the juxtaposition of scenes, notably one scene where a man picked up the phone and then cut to a scene of a woman saying "Goodbye" and hanging up. We participated in the fun game of guessing which movie each scene came from. Before we went in, I was wondering if Christian Marclay would feature any Wong Kar Wai films. His films are my favorite stylistically and he uses lots of shots of clocks to highlight the concept of time. I was super excited when I heard Yumeji's theme from "In the Mood for Love" and saw that there was a scene from that film in there. We went from 11:00pm to 12:00am, so it was fun to see the montage of clocks striking midnight. I was so tired by then that I was literally falling asleep in the theater which is not to discredit the film in any way, it just proves that I'm actually a granny under the guise of a 25 year old girl. If you want to read a beautifully written article about The Clock, I highly reccommend you read Zadie Smith's article!


  1. I'm a sucker for good cinematography, leather, and lace!

  2. I'm back! And it's actually kinda nice to have some outfit backlog I can peruse on my favorite blogs- love your last few, especially this one!

    Oh, and I assume you've read "White Teeth"? Because Zadie Smith seriously changed my life with that one.

  3. Cute outfit. Totally loving the lace cardigan and hat. Excellent combo

  4. ok, well with this dress you look so pretty and sexy I like your pictures
