Spring & Summer wardrobe Inspiration

“The story can resume. I will return. Find you, love you, marry you…”

I watched The Lovely Bones when it was released earlier in the year, and although I really didn’t enjoy the movie at all, I was gob-smacked at Saoirse Ronan’s performance. It immediately made me think that, because I hadn’t seen anything else she’s done, I was missing out on other great performances. Effectively, it meant that I hadn’t seen Atonement either.

So nearly three years after it’s release I finally watched it on Monday. As I suspected I was utterly captivated by Saoirse’s performance and not only that, but the film itself is gorgeous. The country house setting, the humid summer weather, the incredibly posh accents, (including Saoirse’s) the vintage cars, the romanticism of war and the incredible costumes are all served so beautifully by director Joe Wright.

I had no idea what the storyline is before I watched it and so got to experience the, all-too-uncommon cinematic magic of watching it all its twists and turns unfold naturally. (Though, sometimes, if you’re prone to a bit of a blub, you instinctively know with some films that tears are never far away!).

Jacqueline Durran was nominated for an Oscar in 2008 for Best Achievement in Costume Design for the film. I think it is safe to say that Keira Knightley’s character Cecilia has the best wardrobe I’ve ever seen in a movie. It is what I will mostly be craving / channelling it this spring and summer. The feminine floaty, sheer loveliness of it for summer and the beautifully tailored, structured parts of it for spring. I will, however, sadly only dreaming about channelling the Chanel Joaillerie that Keira’s character wears in the movie.

    I must say I felt sooo out of touch that I hadn’t seen this film until now. I’ve watched it twice since, it really is a perfect film. Watching it the second time knowing what was about to happen was even more heart-breaking. (Though I was a little tired and emotional that time too!)
