Tree of Life

by pambythesea

I know I’m a little late to blog about this movie, but I finally got around to seeing it tonight, and I LOVED it.  It got mixed reviews and boos at Cannes where it debuted, but I thought it was amazing.  What struck me was the relationship between the father and his sons.  He loved them so much, but showed it in such destructive ways.  

The costumes also grabbed me, I can’t believe all of the dresses the mother wore.  The costume designer, Jacqueline West, got a lot of them vintage.  For those of us like myself who have no hope of fitting most 1950’s and ‘60’s vintage, someone please make these in 2000’s sizes!  Here are some of my favourites:

This one was my favourite.  It went down to mid-calf, and the skirt wasn’t tight, but wasn’t flared either.  It reminded me a lot of this Wikstenmade dress.

I didn’t notice this one right away (probably because I was crying!), but c’mon?!


See it!
