So, I haven't blogged my new favourite necklace yet, which is nuts!! But here it is, and isn't it pretty? This was my Christmas present from Sayaka, and because it arrived literally the day before we had the bad news about my dad, this necklace was just a constant positive reminder that even though I had just lost someone who meant a lot to me, I still have so many wonderful people in my life. That, and it's beautiful, of course. It's like something Tut-Ankh-Amun would have given his wife as a present! It's my first ever piece of jewelry by Pam Hiran but now I am a devoted fan, for sure! Thank you so much, Sayaka!!
This outfit is probably influenced by the movie Victor and I had been to see two nights ago, as part of the Japanese film festival in London. It was a showing of the rom-com Moteki - which they translated as Love Strikes! - but actually, means something a little different. Someone knows they are going through their "Moteki", their attractive phase in life, when they suddenly have lots of romantic interest from the opposite sex - literally, they become irresistible. And so this movie is about what happens when the shyest, nerdiest guy in the world suddenly becomes super attractive. Of course, he was played by a very handsome man that they just put some glasses on, but still! It was a fun movie.
After the film, there was a Q&A session with the director and the star - Moriyama Mirai, who's something of an idol back in Japan, or so I understand. And holy crap, there were so many women there - all these beautiful Japanese women, of all ages, who'd come to see him. Some of them had even brought their boyfriends! The little cinema room was packed. I can see why they fancied him, I mean, he is one handsome, charming and funny man! Personally, I was almost more enthralled by how beautifully all these women were dressed. I mean, the elegance and the simplicity of some of those ladies... I wanna dress like them! So maybe this is my modest attempt - at being more modest. As if!
