We watched another great, classic movie. Much like “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “Love Story” is filled with life lessons related to love. This time of the romantic flavor. And a bit more modern.
Wintry New England is the backdrop making this feel like it could almost be a holiday movie. Plus it was released in theaters in December 1970 adding to the holiday vibe.
I can’t help but wish I went to Harvard after watching this movie. Not for the obvious scholastic reasons. Just because.
Although I own the DVD, I’ve only watched this movie once previously. I remember being so stunned by the end that I just tucked it away feeling sad. I think most people know what happens. Except, well, I didn’t.
Although the movie takes place in 1970, Jenny Cavalleri could easily walk into 2013. Her style is fabulous and nearly timeless. Her wardrobe might just be the real love story for me.
The over sized lapels on this camel coat get me every time.
Nerd chic glasses. Yes, please!
The knit hat.
And let’s not forget about Oliver Barrett’s rich boy style. Cable knits, blazers and, is that Burberry? I sure do think that is the exact same reversible Burberry trench that I scored a few months ago.
Yep, here it is reversed. I am always researching…
Did I mention that coat was much too big for me so I decided to sell it after all? Which now makes total sense. It must be a man’s. Maybe I should re-brand it the Love Story Burberry jacket.
Ahh, I sure do love settling in with an old movie on these chilly December nights…”Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”
