Welsh wellies

Hows your week been? I finally got around to seeing The edge of love and yep thats it, in a uniform of wellies, dresses, and cardigans (I guess I have the clothes down already, I swear I was born in the wrong era) I want to pack up and move to some ramshackle un-modernised house in the Welsh wilds. Quite a gritty story but the sets were, for me, perfection.

I loved the look of this film too- loved the Wales fashion and I really liked the London apartment.

How divine this film looks. Loving the vintage feel garments they remind me of the beautiful knitting books on english yarns website.
Hope it was good.

Jane Flanagan said...

Looks beautiful. I can't wait to see!

Marie-Eve said...

That was a visually beautiful movie, I agree. I watch more the clothes and decor than listened to the story.

Peonies and Polaroids said...

Wasn't it beautiful? I found it terribly depressing though.

Uncle Beefy said...

I hear you on the wrong era syndrome! Feel that way often. Sometimes wrong continent too. Though I'm happy to let you wear the dresses. ;)

Caitlin said...

Oh I love the look of these pictures. That movie looks so inspiring - in a clothing sense, not really in a love-betrayal sense. I hope it comes out in the U.S, I'd love to see it.

Laura said...

Gorgeous!!! I haven't seen the film, but I have always been so drawn to the 1940's. Love the hair, love the red lips, the dresses, the cardis, and yes, the wellies and the ramshackle houses in the countryside :)

yes you are all so right, a visually breathtaking film, but it did leave me feeling a little haunted emotionally. Its a must see. : )

Jessa said...

do you know, by chance, when its going to open in the states?

I can't wait for it! I agree that I was also born in the wrong era. There's something so magical and beautiful about this time, the clothing, the scenery, the hair...positively everything.

reminds me of Resistance, a WWII novel set in Wales.

Concha said...

Oh I can't wait to see it!

Keira Knightley used to get on my nerves but since 'Atonement' I love her!

Oh I can't wait to see this movie. I just wish I was there with them. I too feel like I was born in the wrong era. I'm totally in love with the mustard cardy in the last photo! Thank you, this has bought great joy to my evening!

These are possibly the most gorgeous pictures ever. So classic. So vintage. So romantic. I'm dying to see this film.

Lobster and swan said...

hello Erika, did you just get my comment about the giveaway? you won : )

Brittany Noel said...

Oh, I am so sad I can't see it! It looks beautifully dressed, and I love the lead guy. He was so creepy as the Scarecrow, but man is he gorgeous!

Lobster and swan said...

when was he a scarecrow?! I love him in brothers and sisters : )

Brittany Noel said...

I'm pretty sure he was the Scarecrow in Batman Returns. At least he looks just like that actor... I don't know if that movie was released over there?

Brittany Noel said...

Haha, nevermind.Tthe Lead guy just totally looked like the Scarecrow in the photo. Sorry!

Lobster and swan said...

oh that guy! yeah I think he was : ) I like the other one, the American : )

Designers' Brew said...

Brittany Noel, you were right, it's the same guy.

I am swooning over these clothes... have been in love with 40's hair and clothes since I saw Hope & Glory as a kid. I used to think painting a seam line up the back of one's leg was the height of sexy. ;)

Cillian Murphy was the Scarecrow in Batman, and is Irish, and Matthew Rhys is Welsh, and neither of them are American. :p And I totally adore both of them, lol. I'm totally trying to decide if I want to see the movie..the subject matter looks tragic, and Sienna Miller and Kiera Knightly both get on my nerves, so I am not sure the payoff of watching the guys is enough, lol.

The Cherry Blog said...

I recently saw this film, and loved the look! I already wear alot of tea dresses but love the red lips and cardgan/wellies combination! x

Lobster and swan said...

I knew the one guy Cillian Murphy was irish, it was the other one. I had no idea where he was from I only know him from brothers and sisters!

have you seen the film disco pigs? thats where I first saw Cillian Murphy : )

muralimanohar said...

Nope...it's on my list for whenever I find it, though. But I have to steel myself..it's another one of those tragic stories, right?

Lobster and swan said...

yeah its a crazy romeo meets juliet that takes a turn for the worse type, harsh but good.
