Inspiration Of October/November

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about the things that inspire me, so here we go…Plus, November seems like a perfect time, as I can’t think of anything nicer than watching an interesting movie/reading a great story with a cup of tea when it is dark and cold outside.

First of all, I really enjoyed the last series of Downton Abbey, how gorgeous the is 1920’s style, I was mesmerized by everything, those dresses, jewellery and head pieces are to die for. If I only I could dress like that, at least once in a while.

And how sad is the fact that it’s the last season. Can’t wait for the Christmas special, and I want it to be a happy ending for everyone, life is tough enough, so I want to enjoy a fairy-tale on screen at least.

I’ve also  had a chance to watch Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel documentary finally and loved every minute of it. I had to pause a lot to look carefully at all the images, pure eye candy.

I am loving the lipstick and the nail polish the model below is wearing and Mrs. Vreeland’s nails shape (obsessed with red almond/stiletto nails), and of course her red lipstick.

I am also fascinated by BBC’s Ascent Of Woman, I have seen only one episode so far, and really enjoyed it. Although   I was familiar with most things that were covered in the first part, it was still a pleasure to watch it. If you are interested in the way  women were seen in different cultures – this is a good series to begin with.
