“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

I post and reblog: things I think are pretty, things that intrigue me, things I'm a fan of, and things I care about.

Common themes include: books, writing, movies, more books, cozy beds, breakfasts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, feminist issues, and occasional pieces of my life.




: “Joe [Wright] just told me: ‘You better make it good because it’s really significant.’ So, I felt very worried that it wouldn’t be good enough and I just made it and I thought, ‘Well, it’s kind of OK.’ Someone asked me before ‘What makes a costume iconic?’ It’s really only partly the costume designer. It’s really about Keira wearing it, at that moment, looking the way she does. The way that it’s framed. How Joe uses it. How it fits in the story. All those things make it something… It’s made to be at that moment in the movie, and its greatness comes from all those elements at the same time. I didn’t know it would be so good, you can’t know!”Jacqueline Durran, costume designer for Atonement (2007).

So today: 

  • I wore a pretty white lace dress I bought while roaming the streets of Philadelphia this past Friday.
  • I found out that I probably have a better than even chance of getting my for-this-stage-in-my-life dream job. FINGERS SUPER CROSSED, CROSS YOURS TOO, OK?
  • I walked to Trader Joe’s after work wearing my new wonderfully comfortable and stylish brown leather sandals (with the same awesome dress, of course), and bought a few delicious things while getting in a nice walk on a beautiful day.
  • I had delicious Woodchuck cider with my dinner.
  • I received in the mail one of the best gifts I’ve ever received, a Little Women poster made of the full text of the story (and the company also donates a book to the International Book Bank for every poster sold). Maybe you’ve noticed my url, SO YEAH, THIS WAS EXCITING. It’s right up there with the lovely Little Women shirt I received for Christmas. I HAVE REALLY WONDERFUL FRIENDS.

My Christmas dress. (Modcloth)







amadgirl-withablog replied to your video: So here is a thing: instead of taking pictures, at…

I love your dress!

Thanks!

If it made any sense at all and if it wouldn’t sort of ruin the novelty, I would totally wear it all the time.

I’m a little bit in love with it.



THE BIG DAY.

It’s hard to believe that Swarthmore College actually decided that I am qualified to earn a diploma with a major in English Literature and a minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies.

BUT THEY DID!
