I saw American Hustle while I was out of town this week and wasn’t expecting it to blow me away, but it did on so many levels–I loved the acting, the pacing, the story and Christian Bale’s voice. Have you seen it yet? What did you think?

I have a soft spot for DVF to begin with, so once Irving takes Sydney to his dry cleaning store and upgrades her wardrobe with lots of DVF wrap dresses, I was pretty much hustled. Michael Wilkinson, the costume designer, had full access to the Halston vintage vault and modeled the look on late 70s Studio 54, Playboy, Cosmo, Breck girl ads and movies like Good Fellas, Saturday Night Fever and Atlantic City.

I loved that details like the hair, nails and furs were over-the-top but never took away from the acting.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

p.s. There’s a new post on cozy comfort over on Magical Mined today and a quick peek at one of my favorite sets from American Hustle.

I am glad your cat is alright. The lady who owned these clothes is truly so stylish and so full of colour.

Oh wow, this must have been fun albeit for a sad reason. But lucky you to get to have first dibs. And almost 1o years of blogging wow. And so glad your kitty is ok.

Oh my, what a week! I hope your kitty and phone are both better! How wonderful of your friend to share her mom’s wardrobe. The sneak peek looks divine! I’d love to get a chance to celebrate her life and looking timelessly stylish too!

PS. So glad to hear that is all well. We have started the unpacking but we’re still waiting for proper internet connection.
