I have finally returned to Madrid!
Thanks to the city’s unpredictable weather at the moment, I keep on walking out of the house with no idea what to wear. I have to pack my bag with sandals, an umbrella, a jumper and a fan because I just don’t know whether it’s going to be sunshine or showers. Today I wore lots of layers to make my life that little bit easier.
In the morning I carried out some errands with my my mother, and in the afternoon we took a walk around the Parque del Oeste. Treating ourselves, we decided to go and see Anna Karenina, starring Jude Law and Keira Knightley. The costumes are spectacular.
I always watch films in the language they were made in. A lot of English films are shown in Spain and are normally translated really well, but I cannot process English characters being dubbed over in a Spanish voice. When I see a foreign film, I see it as a great opportunity to practise my English, French and German.
I love films. One of the reasons why I teamed up with Frida Torresblanco, producer of Pan’s Labyrinth, to start film production company Braven Films was to see more fantastic movies being made. The production company’s latest flick, Magic Magic premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. I met with Robert Redford at the premiere. I declared myself one of his biggest fans. The Sting is one of my favourite films. Every single time I watch it I love it more and more.
I’m wearing two stars and heart necklaces from Emebe Designs, a turquoise cross pendant from Belao, a grey t-shirt from Zara (from the store’s spring collection) a wrist handkerchief from my friend Rodrigo, a gold ring from Carrera y Carrera, and a shirt from Maison Scotch for Cool The Sack. My light grey jeans are from J.Brand and I also bought them from Cool The Sack. My bag is from Leonce– a shop in Oviedo that I love– my sunglasses are from Persol and my shoes are from The Flaneuse. I always carry perfume in my bag, and today I’m carrying Coco Noir from Chanel. My lipstick is from Yves Saint Laurent, although the shade is no longer available.
What kind of movies do you like? What is your favorite movie? I particularly love Life Is Beautiful. It’s really striking how such a beautiful love story can come out of the worst situation imaginable.
I hope Monday is treating you well!
