Love With The Proper Stranger

Hey Bloggies, I've come to update you with a movie

I am no fan of old movies, but I just recently saw a TV showing of "Love With a Proper Stranger" and I loved it! It was really well done. The film is about 44 years old, released on Christmas in 1963, it was also was nominated for 5 Oscars.

The movie takes a look at 2 strangers and the odd times they go through finding their place. I recommend the film even if you're not a fan of old movies, I'm usually not and I still adored it. Another thing to adore is the head actor, Steve Mcqueen who looks just amazing in the film.

I love his old fashion oh so handsome look, but he wasn't the only character to adore there was also the gorgeous Natalie Wood.

Natalie Wood's beauty is astounding, and she has a classic fashion sense to follow. Her fashion is very of the era, and very lovely.

Photos from the film.

So if any of you busy bloggers have some down time, Love With The Proper Stranger is the way to go.

One year and 76 posts later!

Hello Bloggers!

This past week a very important date passed by that I've just remembered. Last Tuesday on the 15th of January of 2008 was the one year anniversary of Sun and Tan. I started January 15th of 2007! I'm really excited that I have been able to keep up with the blog for this long, and I don't plan on going anywhere soon, so hopefully many more years to come of Sun and Tan! If I was old enough I would most defiantly drink to this happy occasion!

And to celebrate this occasion I've gone out and found myself the perfect dress!

Now it's time to thank all of you bloggers that I've gotten to know over the past year. I'm so thankful for all the comments and feedback I get, and I wouldn't still be blogging if it weren't for all of you fellow bloggers! Thanks for one fabulous year!

floral, floral - maxi !

Well, school is back in session, and though my work load has been considerbly light, for some reason I haven't come around to posting. But I'm here now!

Because of the unseasonably warm weather I've experience days ago, I really got in the mood of spring & summer clothing. A favorite has been the romantic, fun, and fresh floral prints. They remind me so much of old wedding outfits. Whether in a skirt, scarf, dress, or top they are perfect outfits for the upcoming (actual) spring.

I love the feeling of this dress, simple and summery. from topshop

A wonderful flower designed dress. uo

This dress looks great dressed up , but would also look great with leather sandals for a summery look. uo

I think this skirt would look great with colored tights (of a different color). By Lux at UO

One other piece of clothing I have fallen in deep love with are maxi dresses. Even though they're probably not the best choice for me, since I am already short, I still love them and how they look with awesome leather sandals.

I love the colors of this Diane Von Furstenberg maxi dress.

And I can't forget sandals to go along with those dresses . . .

I really love these sandals, though they are way out of my price range. uo

A less expensive pair, that is very cool. uo
