Well, that movie did not disappoint! I would highly recommend it if you're like me and you love trying to figure people out. That's one of the reasons I am such a huge fan of Mad Men. Nobody is good or bad-they're just human beings and infinitely interesting. The same applies to Cindy and Dean in Blue Valentine.
The movie felt like '500 Days of Summer' meets 'Revolutionary Road'. The dark and heart-wrenching marriage scenes were tempered by those sweet 'young love' scenes. You know the ones. A crazy-in-love couple in a magical world of their own. It was scary to see their relationship go from romance to ruins. As if I'm not enough of a skeptic! Anyway I've been pushing the movie on friends so I could finally have someone to dissect it with. Have any of you guys seen it? What did you think?
As expected, Michelle Williams was adorable. It looks like her character was probably big on thrift shops! She was always in faded floral dresses and tough black boots with an epic leather backpack. Just look at how her really simple outfits enhance her natural beauty. I loved that about the styling.
Anyway a big fat thank you to my brother for helping with this shoot. I haven't had much time to take photos in the day and shooting at night is usually problematic. Luckily, Mic had a brilliant idea. He parked the car facing this wall and beamed the headlights straight at me so we had makeshift lighting. Cars passing by, of course, thought I was crazy.
I kind of like the effect of the pictures even if I look more grunge than usual. Here I am still playing pretend in Cindy's trademark floral dress and black boots! I wish I had a little ukelele or tap dancing skills to show off too.
I got the dress back in December and have been just about living in it. It has a hidden zipper at the back and a tie at the waist. But I didn't realize how short it was at the store and now I can't wear it without tights.
Speaking of tights, one of the guys at work randomly told me, 'Alam ko na kung bakit ka palaging naka-tights… (Now I know why you're always in tights) kasi gusto mo si Zooey Deschanel! (Because you like Zooey Deschanel!). Am I that transparent? That's the second Zooey comment I've gotten at work. But don't worry, I am definitely not deluded enough to think they're indicating similarities looks wise!
