Oh Marie Marie Marie Antoinette

By 6:02 PM , , , , , , , , ,

I have to say, a guilty pleasure movie of mine is Marie Antoinette... (where's the guilty pleasure?).. It's the one with Kirsten Dunst. I liked her role in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (now if i can only find that damn purple velvet corset blazer- I'd be in the best of shape). But I thought I would never again like her. Alas, my friend Andrew loves this movie- so i thought i would give it a whorl. Not only do they play songs that pluck at my heart strings (Ceremony by New Order - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8App43SKMU & Radio Dept. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6H-Rxd3SJ2k & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31ZFeAV7YYY  OH AND ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fM2h9HJGp3A ) - but they also have countless gowns, shoes, and hair pieces to blow my mind to bits!







Not to mention I have an obsession of pugs right now. No I can't explain it. shhh shh shhhhh.

OH and then I have been dying my hair pink like this lately~

What a dream to watch that movie over and over. The true story has thousands visiting Versailles. Wishing and dreaming of the lavish lifestyle of Rococo/Roccoco. I, myself, dread big spaces that are man-made (give me nature please)- but she finds a great balance with her beautiful gardens. She loved nature, the arts, and her children. We forget the torment France was going through as we see life through her young eyes. We fall in love with her voids of love and duty- meanwhile economic turmoil and starvation plague her legacy. "Let them Eat Cake" has echoed across generations to describe her legacy and her arrogance toward her people. Rather the story is true or not- I cannot say. She did have a tragic end. Watching her friends die and brutally picked apart- down to her last child. She haunts every aspect of France in my mind. I wonder what the French think of her? Can't wait to go to Paris and find out (THIS YEAR!) What an amazing ride she has taken me-and I finally get to to actually be there. Soon.Soon.
Hopefully my imagination can still wander about despite the fact of seeing the real thing first-hand...



 I just got off the phone.. I will be babysitting a pug this Friday. Funny what run-ins and chats with strangers will get you. Now if I can ONLY squeeze Morocco into this Trip I'll be GOLDEN.
