Shopping and a movie

We spent most of the day shopping. We're going to a wedding next weekend, and we had to get the wedding gift, of course :) We also spent some time getting accessories for the evergreen-coloured dress that I'm going to wear. I'd originally wanted to get new shoes that were flesh-coloured and sparkly. It turns out that I have some high-heeled pumps that are flesh-coloured (well, a two-tone beige) with some very subtle gold and silver sparkle to them. So I'll wear those :) I did buy a necklace, an ivory shawl, and some earrings.

This evening we saw The Illusionist. It's a lot like a con or grifting movie set about 100 years ago, and we thought it was really good. The whole movie was spent setting up the con, and the twist, when it was finally revealed, was unexpected and therefore good. The accents were quite well done - they were consistent amongst the actors throughout the entire movie. I've seen those actors in other movies and in interviews, and they don't speak like that in real-life. The constumes and sets were beautiful. I'd recommend this movie if you like either period films or con movies.
