man oh man, when Hila sent me this guest post i actually squealed like a little girl. one of my favourite things about her blog is when she talks about films, and quite a few of those are period dramas. we have actually done a couple of comparisons projects that fall into this category, so we are kindred spirits when it comes to our love for a good costume drama. plus who wouldn’t enjoy getting another look at colin firth as darcy?
Hila picked Cracks for our next comparisons project – a film I have been meaning to watch for ages but just never got round to. i actually find myself watching less and less films these days, as any available tv time is dedicated to my series addiction (cough game of thrones cough). so this was a great “excuse” to indulge in some eva green action – one of my favourite actresses who has a knack for playing seriously unhinged characters.
you’ll remember hila from her things i like right now a while back. we’ve teamed up for a cool little project where we pick a film, i create some colour comparison mash ups (be it with art, fashion, vintage…) and hila writes a short piece of fiction based on the results. i was immediately intrigued when hila suggested the idea, as it combines creative strengths from both sides – and i am in awe of anyone who can write creatively.
here is the second part of my period drama / street style colour comparison series over at le projet d’amour. man, i really enjoyed doing these! i just finished watching the new upstairs downstairs, which was such a hit for the bbc that it is set to return in 2012 with 6 more episodes. recommended viewing if you miss downton abbey.
i love when you stumble upon a blog, and within 2 minutes you add it to your reader & become a devoted follower – that’s what it was like when i came across hila‘s blog le projet d’amour. i knew her list would be full of things that i too would love (like masculine style, YES!) but what i like most about it is that hila admits to loving gossip girl… just like the rest of us chicks. don’t deny it, ladies – cause i won’t believe you.
