A Sustainable Life. Make Magick.

CineStyle: Paris in the 20’s


I am very much a visual creature as are most style-o-philes, soaking up every lovely thing before me. After weeks of attempting to get to the movies I finally succeeded. Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris was the film of choice. I have a special place in my heart for neurotics and romantics. His subject staple.

There are some stunningly funny and fabulous caricatures of the great artists and icons of the 20’s. Allen’s ode to Romantics who fantasize about living in another time suits me well, however flawed or delusional we might be. It is sweet, sentimental and rings true..  It certainly inspired me to consider a life in Paris…

If you could have dinner with anyone from anytime? My guest list:

Frida Kahlo and Josephine Baker
Coco Chanel

My wardrobe inspiration because of course dinner would easily become a fortnight of wicked conversation, debate and creation :
