fashion films: get your streaming movie on

Okay, so I know I'm not the only one who, as they're getting ready to climb into bed each night, looks first at the book they're supposed to be reading, and then at their computer/TV/ipad. It makes me feel like I have an angel and a devil on my shoulder. The angel is like, "Girl, read this book. It will make you smarter and help you get a great night's sleep." And the devil is like, "Hey girl, you know you wanna stay up late watching two fashion documentaries and then wake up exhausted tomorrow. It will be really fun." 

I know what you're thinking: Taylor, watching movies in bed isn't evil. That's weird to say. And you're right. I'm just letting you in on the weird way my brain works, aren't you glad? Anyway, true story - Sunday night I watched L'Amour Fou and Unzipped back-to-back. The first one made me teary and emotional so I had to watch the second one to cheer myself up again. Let me tell you, nothing cheers a girl up before falling asleep like 90's supermodels & Issac Mizrahi. It was worth the exhaustion I felt Monday morning.

Some of these movies have been available on Netflix for ages, but I thought it was worth mentioning that you should really take advantage. It's an easy way to educate yourself about the people who shape this industry we're so obsessed with.

I invite you to go home tonight - hopefully free of the crippling guilt of having a laptop with little devil horns on one of your shoulders, and a copy of The Virgin Suicides with a halo over it on the other - and indulge in a little fashion on film.

[For reference, all these are currently streaming: The September Issue; L'Amour Fou; Bill Cunningham New York; Unzipped; and Seamless]
