Assassination of Jesse James

So my friend took me vintage shopping :) Although I hardly bought anything, i was quite impressed... there was a huge vintage shop and thrift market, i found most things were to big but i found this pink and white tye dye top, I haven't worn pink and white so I wasn't sure about it, but it was just £4! and no doubt it will look great with some shorts in the summer! Its my first tye dye buy! haha i'm not a big fan of the trend and the only items I like are simple with not such a big pattern so this was perfect! I also wasn't sure about the gypsy type ruffled sleeves... but recently I have noticed more tops like this in the shops... god I wore 100s of gypsy tops when I was like 10! haha

The second isn't thrifted lol! Its £9.99 from H&M and I love the grey/black/navy floral pattern on it.. but it doesn't fit right at all... something i've noticed with H&M cardigans, they only look good if you button them up and they seem to have like a gap for big boobs! Which is unneeded in my case!

The Assassination of Jesse James I watched this film last night because after seeing Casey Afleck's nomination clip at the Oscars I thought he looked quite impressive... plus Brad Pitt is always good! :) Being a 2 and a half hour film its natural for me to get a bit bored an confused after the first half, I think the hardest part was working out who was who and stuff.. but I always kind of knew what was going on which was a good thing... not so confusing. I think some of the film was unnecessary and just confused me lol but i'd say the last hour was fantastic! I mean... nothing amazingly shocking happened at the end... it just generally a great ending! & I think Casey Affleck was amazing! I'm going to start rating films so id give this a B+

Cruel Intentions yeah its and old film but one I've always wanted to watch because I love Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe is amazingly hot! I thought it was good... in some ways weird... i know that they are just step brother and sister I just still think there relationship was weird lol... and one minute Sebastian is a total jerk 2 seconds later he's in love and nice n sweet!... that part confused me lol apart from that i really enjoyed the film!  C+

I know I gave Jesse James a better rating than Cruel Intentions... i probably wont ever watch Jesse James again but then id like to watch Cruel Intentions again... if that makes sense.

Oh and Im going to read a book I always try and read books but I never finish them... unless there autobiographys... i love them lol. Well Ive just orderd Jarhead a story of a marine in the gulf war, Im not a big fan of war films... so on but I enjoyed the film so much I wanted to find out more... anyone else read it?

I love the H&M cardi you've thrifted!

I also watched Jesse James... but I gave up after one hour because it was really boring in the beginning and I was sleepy... I also had problems with the "who is who"

Secretista said...

MMM, I love that cardigan. I might fly over there and steal it. :P

Olivia said...

I am so, so jealous of your cardigan. And that pink tye-dye top is actually cute. I agree, I haven't been a huge fan of the trend lately, but that is a really nice top.

alexgirl said...

I haven't watched Jesse James yet either, because its so long! I know that's the worst reason ever, but I get A.D.D. sometimes. Oh, and I love Cruel Intentions. Yes, it's weird, but it's kind of awesome. I haven't seen it in ages.
I love your new shirts, too!

Katelin said...

I love your sweater on the right, super cute.

The Clothes Horse said...

Vintage shopping is the best! I'd be happy to exchange links.

Shaz said...

the cardigan is really cute, and the tie dye will look great with shorts..

maru said...

thanks adele
love the second top!

Jill said...

Trying out the tie dye I see, oh if only summer would get here. I used to wear peasant tops as a kid too!

Aisha said...

lovely buys :)

Romany said...

Cute tops - defs give pink and white a go, it's a combination that you probably have to be in the mood for, but a cute one. ;)
Hmm, I never particularly wanted to see the Assassination of Jesse James because it didn't look like my kind of movie, and I guess a B+ isn't going to make me rush out and see a film. Lol!
Cruel Intentions is such a great movie, don't you think? Sure it's totally creepy, but there's just something about it! ;)
I saw Jarhead...Jake was hot but it wasn't anything particularly ground-breaking - but then again, I'm not much into war films either, but you should give it a go anyway... you might like it...? :)

I really like both of your picks! I am not a huge tye dye fan but i like that one, and you're right, it'll look great with shorts.
I LOOOVE Cruel Intentions, it's one of my favourite films, I've seen it a zillion times!

Cate said...

haha i love the tie-dye and gypsy trends! i used to wear them when i was little too, but now i simply wear them again! :)

Kayleigh said...

Jesse James was an awesome film, I was on Team Casey for the Oscars, he was mesmerising. I've been a fan of him for years and am so glad he's getting recognition.

sarah mendelsohn said...

Secret Agent said...

Cruel Intentions is a dirty movie. I watched it when I was so young...and seeing all that sex and Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar make out... Wow.
