okay, i’ll admit it… i actually loved the notebook when it came out. 99% because of ryan gosling (obviously) & it is also quite aesthetically pleasing to watch. i could never watch it again because it seriously makes me cringe now and the story is pretty awful, but perhaps i can fast forward & just watch the gosling bits? anyway – had a bit of a trip down memory lane when i saw the Ruche 2011 Lookbook which took inspiration from the southern romance of the movie.


  1. For some reason, this immediately reminded me of The Lady of Shalott — maybe it was the girl in the boat, I don’t know.. but I love it :)

  2. I was a 13-year-old girl when The Notebook came out, and while all my classmates fawned over it, I couldn’t help but cringe at the forced romance between the personality-less characters. This lookbook is absolutely gorgeous though, and the clothes! The ruffles! The lace!

  3. I agree on the Notebook, i found the ending so cringeworthy. But I do love Gosling. Have you heard his band?

  4. Gorgeous. I just returned home from a holiday in coastal South Carolina. It looked just like this!
    And I really want those spectator shoes!!

  7. I am lucky enough to live in Charleston, SC and see these sights on a daily basis.
    Those pictures are taken in Cypress Gardens… one of my fave spots. They are stunning and very well styled. Great post.

  8. gorgeous! yes, ditto on the great styling / location / photography…

  9. I loved the movie, but please learn from me – never read the book! It was so awful I never made it past the first twenty pages, and now I’ll never get that time back.

  10. Does anyone else think the model here looks like a young Gena Davis? So pretty! I love this collection :)
