A Feast for the Eyes: Crimson Peak

This past weekend on campus was William & Mary's Homecoming.  While I'll post some pictures from the festivities of the weekend later, this post is about Crimson Peak.  My friends and I took an early-ish Sunday morning to get together like the good old days and watch a horror movie.  And while it wasn't quite a horror movie, it was a beautifully artistic ghost story...or a "gothic romance" as Tom Hiddleston put it.  I won't lie, I was holding onto every word Tom Hiddleston spoke.

Here are some shots from the film.

The Crimson Peak estate, in all its dilapidated glory.

I thought the movie was interesting; it may have combined one too many horror movie elements, but I appreciated the novelty of the story.  Everything was incredibly intricate, from the costumes to the house itself and I was glad that I was watching it on the big screen so I could take full advantage of it.  Definitely one to see again, if not only for the wonderfully romantic being that is Tom Hiddleston.

2nd Sundays Craft Fair

Ah, Fall Break.  The well-deserved four day weekend for undergrads, and just another weekend on campus for a grad student trying to graduate by the end of the year.  However, I did get a chance to enjoy the absolutely beautiful weather this weekend by going to the 2nd Sundays Fair.

I also borrowed a DSLR from the library for the long weekend, but unfortunately wasn't able to take any really creative shots.  Sad to admit it, but I did Picasa-edit these photos, mainly for lighting and color modifications

Come on...a book signing about Washington and Hamilton?  I couldn't resist.

Everybody's favorite vintage bookstore in Merchant's Square.

Happy October!

Paris Fashion Week: Elie Saab SS16

I'm not usually one to follow fashion week or particular designers, but I came across a few Paris FW runway shows and I thought it was worth showcasing.  A collection of florals and lace, here are a few of my favorites.

The man of the hour himself, Elie Saab.
