Perhaps you're thinking that that is a rather random gift. The thing is, the student happens to be my nephew, and his mom, my sister, knew that I had been wanting to watch this movie with the Cat. So that is how we spent our Friday night, after a kind of impromptu belt test at the karate studio for the Cat and a dinner with my Dad. We went home and watched this movie that I had grown up watching on KTLA, channel 5. For being a movie of the eighties, there are some pretty fabulous wardrobe pieces. Some of the outfits are pretty horrible in their awful eighties' eightiesness, but that doesn't take away from the good ones. The look of the whole movie is just pretty. Cybil Shepherd is gorgeous in it, especially in the black dress she wears to an event hosted by the Smithsonian.
Sorry for the poor picture quality; I couldn't find any pictures that really showcased the dress. My favorite part is the skirt; when she is standing still, it looks like an ordinary silhouette, but when she moves, you can see that is is more special than that; it does not have a solid black skirt, but rather a sheer overlay with perhaps a ribbon or embroidered detail. The skirt portion of the dress is pretty fabulous. It makes me want to find a fancy event to go to so I can get all dressed up in this exact same dress.

How gorgeous is it, though?!

So here is what I leave you with: go watch the movie Chances Are. Is it life changing? No. Is it philosophical and deep? No. But it's a good movie! Have a great weekend!
