New blouse

June 30, 2011

In my postlet about my recent vintage shopping-spree; I mentioned that I came home with awesome loot. One of them was the swallow blouse, but this blouse absolutely deserves it's own post, too.Well now, isn't this a darling and romantic blouse?

I am very looking forward to the 14th of July, as there will be a huge antique and curiosa market at the market square near my house! Hopefully I will find me some more lovely treasures! These kind of markets are rare in my hometown, so I am over the moon!

By the by;
I started with the the mini serie of HBO: Mildred Pierce. Eversince the first episode I was hóóked!
I've always liked Kate Winslet as an actress, and Evan Rachel Woods aswell. But what I like the most is the effort they've put into the details! The clothing, the hair, the house decoration, and just the story on itself is absolutely worth watching. I have read the novel written in 1941 by James M. Cain, ánd I have watched the movie 'Mildred Pierce' with Joan Crawford from 1945, so I was delighted that HBO now made a mini serie of this story! I can réally recommend it to you! I, unfortunatly, had to download it', as the Netherlands is very much behind in broadcasting series of HBO -- or even series in general!
Many lovers of the golden era probably already know about the excistense of it, or have even watched it already.

If not; than take a look and enjoy!

    It's always a bit difficult to talk about my private life. Some people can be awefully narrow-minded, but luckily I've never experienced that on blogspot!
