Here’s another quick and easy post featuring the outfit I wore at the June film screening.
This month’s outfit consists of a John Rocha silk skirt (bought in my local charity shop for £3.99) plus a thin linen jacket that I got last year for £10 (in a sale) at Snape Maltings in Aldeburgh, Somerset.
What the photo hasn’t picked out is that there are tiny beads scattered throughout the skirt that sparkle and flash as you walk, and I matched the sparkles in the skirt with my sparkly charity shop flats that I bought some time ago.
I seem to have weaned myself off wearing the chunky boots! And yes, the outfit is still a bit black, but that’s because I need to look reasonably business-like on film night.
The film we showed went down well with our audience. It was Dark Horse, which is a documentary that tells the tale of people in a tiny, somewhat run-down, village in Wales successfully breeding a race horse that went on to win several important races.
Now you’d think, wouldn’t you, that this wouldn’t satisfy a sophisticated audience like ours (we are, you know!) but it did. This was because you can watch this film on so many levels: it’s a straight-forward story about a horse; it’s an insight into our class system; it’s tale of plucky people defying the odds; it’s a further insight into the neglected and underprivileged areas of our United Kingdom (hmmm – I say that with some irony now!). At whatever level you look at it Dark Horse was a feel-good film for a Saturday night and our audience, I’m sure, would highly recommend this film to you.
That’s all for now
