Midnight Train to Georgia

Queen Victoria, "The Young Victoria" : Such a Fashion Inspiration.

The moment that I saw the trailer for "The Young Victoria" I knew that I would either be buying a ticket for it at the cinema or seeing it once it came out on DVD. When it won the Academy Award for Costuming, it only sparked my interest even more. About two weeks ago, after dying to see it for about two months I finally got a chance to see it. And let me tell you- I fell in love with that movie. The entire movie was eye candy to me- the GORGEOUS majestic costumes (costumes were done by Sandy Powell) , along with the majestic English secenery (there was not a screenshot in the entire movie that was anything less than beautiful!)

The fabrics, colors, and textures used in the costumes of "The Young Victoria" have been an inspiration to my own wardrobe.

I had learned about Queen Victoria in my History of Costume class last semester and found her to be a very interesting person but seeing the movie took this "interesting" to fascinating!!! She was the inspiration behind all styles dubbed "Victorian!" She was the youngest ruler of England and had the longest rule thus far- 63 years. However, I have a feeling that Elizabeth II may be trying to break her record. (So far, she's been Queen for 58 years.)

And last but not least....Victoria and Albert's romance.. <3

So if you have any interest in fashion, British hierarchy, or are just a romantic at heart- you will like this movie. See it!

Cotton Candy Hair- LOVE!!!

It's almost Easter!!! So why not make your hair look like an Easter egg?!? Thank you Frenchie from Grease for being such a style pioneer.

...I don't have any tattoos, or body piercings, but I will dye my hair pink and purple.

Lately I have have been spotting pastel colors in blonde hair. I am a blonde myself- I love the look and think it's very fun. Reminds me of cotton candy!!! I'm a big fan of unnatural hair colors.
Plus, if Gaga is rockin' the look, that means I only love it about a gazillion times more. :D

...Considering doing this on my next trip to my hairdresser....

Kitty Cat & Fur Coat

The texture of this kitty cat's fur is similar to the texture of the fur coat that this model is wearing. Both are types of animal hair which have a hairy surface texture that feel furry to the touch.

Columns & Corduroy

The texture of the columns is like the texture of a corduroy fabric. Both have long, straight ridges in them.

Horse Mane & Clothes made with Hair Fringe

The fringe on the model's outfit is made of human hair. This is like the texture of a horse's mane. They are both made of long hairs which when grouped in a cluster, feel smooth to the touch.
