My birthday itself was a working day. However, I went to the cinema on a different day for a matinee screening, which has become something of a birthday tradition. I was keen to see Carol, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and had read lots of good things about the period costumes. Well the film was superb and very striking visually, with lots of beautiful vintage looks from the 1950s, which were painstakingly and accurately recreated by triple Academy Award-winning costume designer Sandy Powell. The fashion is an essential part of creating the characters in the film and telling the story, to dazzling effect. I'm excited to see what Cate and Rooney will choose to wear at the Golden Globes, and their contrasting red carpet styles.
Of all the things I received for my birthday, my favourite gift was a small handmade cushion, with my name embroidered across it. I would love to know your thoughts on my birthday look. You can also see my birthday post from last year here (All Grown Up in Leopard Print - My Birthday Outfit).
Happy Saturday to all my readers!
