The Tourist

I took this past weekend off from blogging.  That meant no making a tutorial, no posting, no linky parties, and hardest of visiting.  I needed a couple of days to refresh and I think it worked!  While sitting at my sewing machine I had a bit of an epiphany.

I only started blogging 8 months ago, but during that time I've crafted something every single week, sometimes more than one thing.  Funny thing is though, as much as I love crafting, it's not my passion.  What I really get a kick out of is sewing and everything related to it.  That means fashion, trends, colour, fabric, etc.  Somehow I got away from that. 

So, starting today I'm going to reconnect with my sewing machine and begin to write more often about sewing projects, patterns, tools, inspiration, whatever.  I'll still craft, but you can expect to hopefully see a bit more variety in what I show you.

So, to kick it all off I wanted to share some images that got me off the couch and behind my sewing machine.

I have to admit that I'm a sucker for Angelina Jolie movies.  I can't help it.  I like her style, her beauty, and even her acting.

This weekend I watched The Tourist .  I don't think it did outstanding in terms of reviews but no one can deny that the wardrobe, make-up, and scenery weren't to die for.

Watching Jolie strut around in perfectly fitted dresses, gowns, and wraps, inspired me to complete a project or two of my own (one of which I'll show you on Wednesday).

This is probably the prettiest dress she wears:


I love that splash of coral that just streams behind her as she saunters down the streets.

And any excuse to show a beautiful bias cut evening gown is good enough for me...even if it is in white.

So classic!

I think I need to rethink my black suit..


And the rest of my work attire...

Angelina Jolie Charles James dress for The Tourist
And I will leave you with this


I'm not sure what I like best about this look, the gown, the make-up, the hair, the diamond choker????  Who knows, but if I ever fell into a life that let me wear something like that I sure wouldn't mind~

I know what you're thinking, this isn't 70's inspired.  You can't wear this to the disco or the music festival in the park!  Why on earth would Tamara like this?  Let's just say I'm a woman of many moods.

What do you think?  Do you have different styles for different parts of your life?  Have you seen the movie?  Did you like it?  or did you just like looking at it?  There actually aren't all that many wardrobe changes in this movie, but I think every one of them has huge impact.

Leave a comment and share your thoughts~

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I love that your eye moves towards the costumes. I can watch a movie and adore it, though the acting was terrible, simply based on the sets and costumes! :o) I love that AJ can wear ANYTHING! Okay, I'm jealous, but it's nice to see someone representing the female form so well! LOL!!
