Bananagrams

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
Lately I've been going to bed at very late hours, mostly because I've been on the iPad watching classics on instant Netflix. However, a couple nights ago I watched In & Out with Kevin Kline, a comedy from the 90s about an English teacher who, three days before his wedding and unbeknownst to him, is outed as being gay on national television by one of his ex-students who has just won an Academy Award. Hilarity ensues as he tries to convince his bride, the town, and the onslaught of media reporters that he is not in fact, gay, and it was just a big misunderstanding. One of my favorite scenes in the film is where he puts in a cassette in his stereo that is going to teach him how to be "manly." The tape at one point says "Are you wearing sufficiently manly clothes?" and Kevin looks down at his purple plaid and black jeans and nods yes, and tape goes "Good. Untuck your shirt." Kevin starts to untuck his shirt when the tape says "Only ONE side." And Kevin goes "Awww man!!!"
I tried to incorporate that scene into the American Apparel sheer button down Im wearing- my favorite shirt right now- which I have untucked only one side.

I had to get a photo of these wagon wheel/flying saucer silver earrings that my aunt gave me for christmas. They may be one of my favorite gifts I got this season, in addition to my Verameat spine ring, and the jacket Im wearing here thats from the 20s and reminds of the Prada Spring 2011 banana/tropical/monkey themed clothing.

Vintage 1920s patterned silk jacket, American Apparel sheer button down, T by Alexander Wang black tank (underneath), JBrand jeans, Sam Edleman boots, vintage bracelet and ring, Verameat spine ring (not clearly shown.)

your outfit is so pretty! i love the jacket.

and ooh instant netflix- do you have any movies to recommend for watch instantly? I've been trying to find good movies on there but the search function is so hard to use, especially when none of the movies that i want to watch are on there and i have to resort to old fashioned browsing.

Cindy said...

that jacket is amazing. you look like a 70's rock star in the 6th picture! what a find.

i love watching 80's/90's movies, i've seen home alone 3 times this week and i watched buffy the vampire slayer last night, such a favourite of mine. kristy swanson and luke perry, what babes.

PS In & Out is a great film, havn't seen it in years. Kevin Kline has always been one of my favorites. His role as Otto in Fish called Wanda is one of the funniest bits of acting ever.
(this is a series of clips of him from fish called wanda: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YKbYLb5GVc&NR=1)

Happy New Year!!

Beautiful silk jacket and well executed! I once performed in a production of "The Mikado" and all of my costumes were vintage 1920's kimonos. It was the greatest thing ever! I miss them.
