“If you find the truth within you, it will save you. If you ignore it, it will destroy you

To continue my obsession with Cracks (Eva Green) , on Saturday I decided to dress like Miss G, complete with a man's navy sweater from Paris, obviously I got that when I had a passionate affair in the 20s (vintage shop Paris), a 1940s Chinese style jacket, found in a treasure chest on the way to the Congo (eBay) and trousers from topshop (I do time travel) and shoes from an African Empress (office). Sometimes I think I put too many items on at once, as I love most of my clothes and would ideally like to wear them all at once, I am a Gemini, my mood changes like the...

P.S Check out my mums new chest drawers, nice. no?

Cracks (2009)

This is one of my favourite films, Eva Green's performance as Miss G, a sociopathic swimming instructor at an all girl's boarding school is enchanting and damn right wince worthy (in a good way). Miss G, is seen as an outlaw at the school, her tales of forbidden love and exotic countries have her pupils enraptured. Cracks is based on the novel by Sheila Kohler about a group of school girls whose lives are interrupted by the arrival of a beautiful and gifted Italian princess, who takes the sacred affection of Miss G away from them. The clothes and setting are downright dreamy, Juno Temple's performance is also fantastic. This film always inspires my wardrobe, as does Miss G's room I love the dark blue walls, with accents of gold. 

I want to copy the yellow ensemble.

The fabric rag in her hair is so cute.

Completely off her rocker, yet so chic.

My mum used to have a sewing machine like this.

The blue velvet, the blue walls, the gold fan, the clutter, adore!

Tadanobu Asano

Ever since watching Ichi the Killer when I was studying the very amazingly bizarre and visceral director Takashi Miike I have been fascinated with Tadanobu Asano he is an amazing actor, I have only seen a handful of his films, but I need to get my mitts on more. I thoroughly recommend Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan

I have just added this to my love film rent list, looks right up my street; mental. 

I saw an iceberg once. They were hauling it down to Texas for drinking water. They didn't count on there being an elephant frozen inside. The wooly kind. A mammoth.

Watching The Blue Dahlia and deciding which one of these beautiful ladies I shall channel this weekend, hope you all had a wonderful week and have an even better weekend petals.
