You Can Tune a Piano, But You Can't Tune A Fish

"If you say anything now, I'll believe it." One lazy summer day about a week ago I rented the movie, "Out of Africa." The movie was came out in 1985. The movie shows the life of Karen Blixen and is based on her novel. It shows her move to Africa, the failure of her coffee crop, true love, befriending of the Natives, and heartbreak. The movie is beautifully made. And the setting is breathtakingly beautiful. Meryl Streep and Robert Redford star in this movie. Meryl Streep is striking and her performance is powerful. "Out of Africa" shows the strength women possess. In many ways she reminds me of Keira Knightley in this movie. I can see Keira playing Karen Blixen if this movie would have been remade this year. Which of course it wouldn't and hopefully won't ever be. Not only does Meryl Streep look like Keira, but the way she walks, talks, and carries herself are very similar. The clothing featured on Meryl Streep in this movie is stunning.



To end this post, the lovely Chanel. She's not my favorite model, but I love this dress.

Yes the silhouette is great, but I fell in love with the color. And I know this sounds cliche but, the article I was just reading in a newspaper was telling about how "yellow is in for the season."
