I hope you had a wonderful weekend. The husband and I went to see The Matrix last night at a local theater, which was even better than I remember. It was one of my favorite movies back when it first came out in 1999, and it still is now but for very different reasons. Watching it in 35mm also was a fabulous experience. The sound was phenomenal: the icing on top of a very delicious cake.

  9. Mmmm cake and icing....! Love the outfit as usual, Laura! And those shoes and your coat are from local boutiques? Go you!!! I'm still so bad about finding new cute little boutiques in Edinburgh because I'm scared to go in and not be able to afford anything. I know not all boutiques = crazy expensive, so I'm really just being lazy.

  18. Oh my goodness, I love this jacket. And those shoes are seriously awesome.
    I haven't seen the Matrix in ages. The second matrix was so... not good. That I kind of gave up on the franchise. I loved the movie when it came out though, I should definitely go check it out again.

  19. haha...this is so kawaii. I like it, nobody rocks a preppy girlish look like this except you. I like the knee high socks and the plaid shirt too. Totally cute....and the super adorable hello kitty bag, what a great find.

  22. I haven't seen "The Matrix" in forever! I always thought the last 45 minutes was the best. The action scenes broke new ground when it came out.

  35. The Matrix! Wow, that takes me back. I saw it for extra credit for a college philosophy course - just had to watch the movie and write a paper on how it tied in with philosophy.

    But on to more important things, I love the ruffle detailing on this coat! So cute!
