An Education.


Seduction. The only word that I can think of to accurately describe this film. If you haven't seen it I'd really recommend it, it's one of my favourite films. It is the story of a schoolgirl applying to Oxford University whose life gets completely changed by a chance meeting with an older man with a flashy sports car. The film is funny and quite sad at times but in the end things work themselves out.

Anyway the reason for this post, not just to recommend the film, is to share some of the lovely outfits worn by Jenny (the main character) and Helen (the girlfriend of one of the older man's friends). It was the wardrobe choices that really stood out to me when I first saw the film, it's set in the 1960s so the style of the clothes is very vintage and just the kind of thing I love!





I'm loving all the leopard, check and floral prints, and the lovely blow-dried hair. 

Have you seen An Education? What did you think?

  1. Wow girl! I'd love to watch this film! I've heard a lot of good things about An Education, and the fact it's set in the 60's always swings a film for me!
    I watched a great film yesterday, A Single Man. That's set in the 60's too. I think i'm going to review it on my blog soon so check it out :)

  2. It is an amazing film, it really makes you think. I think my favourite character is the Dad in the end, you'll see why if you watch the film :)

    I'll check out A Single Man when I get a chance, I love period films (Is that what they're called even if it's not that long ago?, lol)

  3. I read the book/memoir that the film was based on. I really really didn't like it. The 60's bit was a bit interesting. But I found the writer very vain and self involved, shes very much "i am so pretty, i'm so clever, i'm just playing games with X (the older man who i cant remember, i can get any man" etc etc. I found her very unlikeable, except when her husband died and she said about how much she loved him and stuff.
    It was a hard book to get along with, I shall try the film some time, hopefully its a lot better than the book... x

  4. I wasn't a big fan of the movie, but the clothes were stellar. The leopard print coat, the gold sheath dress, and the outfit Jenny borrows from the other guy's girlfriend...plus her hair in that scene! I was knee deep in envy.

  5. I didn't really like it the first time I watched it (apart from the clothes of course) but I rewatched it about 5 times for this post and it has become one of my faves :)
