Today I have gone for the first time to a movie theater for at least 7 years!!!!! So it's quite a big event for me... What I love the most is watching comedies from the 30's, 40's and 50's, so I enjoy staying at home spending an evening with some good DVD instead of going to cinema to see a totaly dummy new film!

But this time I really wanted to see a special movie: The Artist.
A french new one with an actor I really love, it's Jean Dujardin. He was awarded at "Festival de Cannes" for this role. This movie is a B&W film and ... silent!!!

On that special day, I selected one of my early 50's favorite dress...

But these days we jumped directly from summer to winter weather... sunny but so cold though I had to wear a coat and these lovely mink collar bought this summer in a flea market!

I wore for the first time this red snood order from ArtheliasAttic on Etsy. I hope to order a blue and a pink ones soon, so true 40's look!

The story takes place in Hollywood in the late 20's, early 30's and deals with the fall of a very famous actor of the silent who doesn't believe in spoken films... it's also a beautiful love story of course!!!

Love this scene when she hug his jacket!!!

Jean Dujardin is amazing in this movie but my award of the best actor go to this little dog, so cute!!!!

I really love this movie and hope it will be a big hit all around the world! No words needed with great story and great actors!!!
I'm not a real 20's fashion or silent movies lover but there I was happy to see that someone think about creating a such different film.

I noticed that a part of the movie was shooted in Cicada Club in L.A. I was there about 3 years ago, an Art Deco Club with great music, great food and an amazing building!!! You must absolutly go there if you visit L.A. Only vintage or evening wears!!!

Look at this amazing trailer and
 I'm sure you will be hooked like I was and run
 to the nearest cimema!!!!

Have you seen or heard about this film ?
 What do you think about it or this trailer?


  1. LOVE this. Am following now :)

  2. Thanks to follow me Polly! Where are you from?
    My only interest is in vintage fashion before the 60's. I think that nowadays haute couture are so strange, most of the time unwearable and with no new inspiration always picking past ideas!!! I also don't like the models, so skinny with no smile on their face. Only vintage fashion makes me dream!!!
    I love some nice pictures on your blog! I'm thinking to buy another camera soon to make better pictures.

  3. Oh, thank you for linking to your post over at my blog :) Now I'm truly looking forward to this move! And you know what, I'm visiting LA this easter so I'll try to stop by the Cicada Club. Do you have any other good tips on what to do "vintage style" in LA? :)

  4. Oh, I will also be in L.A. in early April just before Viva Las Vegas!!!! I'm searching now for new vintage style places to visit. Cicada is really a great place to visit!!!!
