Peter pan doily collar, whimsical bow prints on a vintage style dress, dainty bow belt cinched at the waist, neat french plait at the roots of the hair ending in cute ombre-hued curls...but finishing the look off by wearing modern and architectural-looking heel-less platforms and veering away from more girly shoes like preppy brogues or ballet flats. This was one of my outfits (yes, coz I changed in the afternoon but that's for my next post) yesterday when we paid a visit to our relatives then went to the movies to watch Sherlock Holmes! And I must say, Guy Ritchie really did a fantastic job directing yet again! To those who don't know, he's Madonna's ex-husband haha! Even before the first movie came out, a lot of people were skeptical about his directing skills but ho ho he proved them all wrong 'coz IMHO it turned out great! I'm very pleased with his treatment of the movie(s): he refrained from modernizing it too much, he portrayed Dr. Watson as the very capable and reliable ally that he truly was to Holmes and did not present him as just a meager side-kick who used to slip on banana skins for comic relief ('coz really, they did not know where to place Watson in the old adaptations), and I liked that the movies stayed true to the book. I loved the overall atmosphere of the film, the costumes and set design, the humor of the two main actors, the cinematography, and the bond that Holmes and Watson shared. Heavy bromance yo! Haha! I cannot wait to get it on DVD!!!
