Famous Knits: Jennifer Lawrence in Vogue UK

Written by Sarah. Posted in famous knits, knits, photos, sweater

I started drooling when I saw November’s Vogue UK photo shoot with Jennifer Lawrence. Beside the fact that I think she’s beautiful and hilarious and she’s the number one celebrity I’d like to be friends with (number two is Amanda Seyfried because, have you seen this?). (Congrats on your Golden Globe, Ms. Lawrence! I didn’t see Silver Linings Playbook because football is boring but I can’t wait to see you and B Coop in Serena!) But this is not just an excuse to talk about how much I love The Hunger Games (because you already know), there were some damn good knits in there.

Everyone, stop what you’re doing and look at this FANTASTIC fisherman sweater by Ashley Williams. I’ve never thought of doing colorwork cables because I haven’t seen any that I’ve liked but I LOVE the way that they look on this sweater. Definitely going to try something similar. I can’t tell you how exciting this piece is to me. Great choice by fashion editor Francesca Burns.

I’m also a big fan of this waffle sweater by Bottega Veneta. It’s something I’d definitely love to make myself in a soft and squishy yarn.

Check out all of the photos by  Alasdair McLellan here. There’s a great cabled turtleneck sweater by Christopher Kane that you can buy for the low, low price of $637. Pin all of those damn pictures and droll over them and then use the rest of 2013 to recreate them. Then walk around pretending you’re Jennifer Lawrence. I mean, don’t do that. I won’t be doing that. That would be weird. You can read about the shoot here if you’re curious about any of the other sweaters or accessories.

And, J Law, if you’re reading this, let’s be friends? I love you!

Dramatic Looks and Butterfly Reef

Written by Sarah. Posted in art, blog spotlight, movies, music, photos

I just checked out the new Kirtsy! It’s really fun and reminds me a bit of Pinterest.

I saw this photo by Mario Testino for Vogue UK in a set curated by Black Eiffel. So dramatic!

Something about those big skirts and the clear blue water reminded me of my favorite movie, The Fall. Doesn’t it look inspired by Tarsem’s film?

It’s the most gorgeous film I’ve ever seen and I want to tell you all about it. I’ll try to keep it short! The storytelling is fantastic and the images are stunning. The performances are nothing short of beautiful. Tarsem tells this story of friendship, deceit, and fantasy entirely from the perspective of a child which is just brilliant! I can’t start talking about it or I’ll go on forever.

Oh my goodness. If you haven’t seen The Fall (or if you’re longing to sit down with some popcorn and/or Kleenex again like I am right now), take a look at the trailer!


What’s your favorite movie?
