Thanks for reading! Now I'll go before I get carried away with the photos. Do you think they picked the right movies? Which of these dresses are your favorites?

I will be now taking a blogging break, so see you in April!

  1. Eee, love it! I like a lot of the dresses that you picked, too, and you made me take a second look at the second to last one -- I hadn't really looked at it when I went through the Oscars dresses, but I really like it from that angle!

    I'm kind of interested in Phantom Thread but then I'm also not . . .

    1. Thanks! My favorite color ever is blue, so... yeah. Pretty much the only two blue dresses this year I included. :D Plus, she was my favorite character in STAR WARS: VIII.

      Same, I go through moods where I really want to see it, then I don't... I just can't make up my mind!
