The Forest Always Kept Us WarmPosted: February 7, 2012
Today’s ABC’s of Style challenge is “Q for Quick”, so I decided to bring out my new cape – I know the silhouette works for me, and I don’t have to worry about what I wear underneath. Throw it over an old T-shirt and you’re done.
It wasn’t until I finished shooting these pictures that I realized I should have worn my leaf brooch, so that I could pretend I was in Lord of the Rings. Actually, on second thought, if we’re talking about the movies, then I’ll pretend I’m in The Hobbit instead. I mean – Richard Armitage, Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Stephen Fry? You guys have fun with your Aragorn and Legolas, I’m good.
This is only remotely connected to the topic, but speaking of my British crushes, anybody watched Smash last night? It’s about a Broadway show, so it’s like Glee for grown-ups. I thought it was a pretty good pilot, even though I only watched it because of Jack Davenport (just like Norrington was the only reason I watched Pirates of the Caribbean 2 & 3.) I hope the show is going to be less annoying than Glee and do well so I can keep watching him 🙂
