{dressing the part} An Education...

Karina and I watched An Education on Saturday afternoon. I absolutely loved it. Love, love loved it. The film was so well done and Carrie Mulligan was stunning throughout. She comes across very much as an Audrey Hepburn for our generation; in her looks of course, but also her presence on screen.
The scenes in Paris totally took me back to the trip I took last year, and so, were naturally my favorite. However, delicious style moments happened throughout...

{Been there, done that}

"One of the boys I dated, and they were boys, suggested that we go to Paris and I said I'd always wanted to see Paris. As if I'd never been..."

"Studying is hard and boring. Teaching is hard and boring. So, what you're telling me is to be bored, and then bored, and finally bored again, but this time for the rest of my life? This whole stupid country is bored! There's no life in it, or color, or fun! It's probably just as well the Russians are going to drop a nuclear bomb on us any day now. So my choice is to do something hard and boring, or to marry my... Jew, and go to Paris and Rome and listen to jazz, and read, and eat good food in nice restaurants, and have fun! It's not enough to educate us anymore Ms. Walters. You've got to tell us why you're doing it."

Definitely my kind of movie, one of my new favorites for sure.
