Desperately Seeking Costume


Has anyone seen Desperately Seeking Susan? I really love it - and only got introduced to the film when researching what outfit I could have for the 80's party I'm going to soon. I totally fell in love with the costume and decided to buy the DVD to get more inspiration. It's one of my favourite films now, just because Madonna is so great in it and it has a great storyline. The film made me want to be all carefree like Madonna's character Susan is, and the costumes are gorgeous :)

So anyways I decided to dress like her character for the party and have been trying to find bits and pieces for my outfit. Today I found a perfect white dress in a store that was closing down - only £8! I have everything off the above list now minus the leggings and beads which I'll get tomorrow [trust me - I have the 'tude. The outfit feels so great already, even if I am missing a few bits!] In two weeks I'll post photos of me in my full outfit, and Kirsty too - who is going as a FAME girl (very appropriate with the new film coming out).

Yesterday I went shopping avec Kirsty, and today I went shopping avec Lauren. My bank balance is soooo low - haven't stopped ebaying for the past three days! Lauren and I also went to see The Time Travellers Wife. I started to read the book a few weeks ago, but I decided to do something I have never done before: waited for the film to come out. It wasn't that the book wasn't good, it was. But for once the film looked exactly like the book. Anyway, now I'm engrossed with the fantastic book Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern. Love her books!! Oh, and by the way GO SEE THE FILM - the Time Travellors wife is a tear jerker but a must see (I managed to stay dry eyed because of the full commitment I had to my non-waterproof heavy eye make-up.)

Tomorrow it's off to see Evita.

Don't cry for me Argentina...!

I watched that movie a long time ago and forgot about it. I need to re-visit it. That was when Madonna was awesome.
