Have a romantic weekend.

My lovelies, what are you up to this weekend? Alex and I are going to the movies! We're seeing Somewhere, the new Sofia Coppola movie. Have you seen it? (Thoughts?) Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few great links from around the web this week...

Alex interviewed the fabulous Garance Dore!

Now that is a sexy bra.

Also, smoking hot swimsuits.

DIY smooch!

Lovely little shop.

A Valentine to your town.

Do you remember this book? What a funny flashback.

Lauren Fleishman's touching photo series of couples who have been married fifty years or more.

Sweet dreams print.

Great news: Our girl Chelsea is now doing wedding flowers.

And just for some added cuteness, raining cats. (Their little feet!)

thanks, shannon!

the movie is not bad, but it`s not the best of Sofia. great dialogues, lovely acting, especially dad & daughter scenes and also the way of presenting the space. Sofia filming style, good music and many things said between the lines. i`m curious what you`ll say. enjoy.

Marta said...

I saw it last weekend and loved it although I would've liked the end to be just a tiny bit different.

adorninc said...

Oooo I've been wanting to see that! Have fun.

Amy said...

i loved somewhere. it had me tearing up before the title even came on the screen. all of her movies are such an aesthetic treat. this one felt particularly special. hope you enjoy it too!

Marjorie Rose said...

Have a beautiful weekend!

P.S. Thx for letting us know about Alex' article on Garance Dore. She's the one who got me into blogging in the first place. Inspirational.

Wonderful article by Alex!
Happy Weekend!

Blayne Beacham said...

I am so excited to see that movie! I went to chateau marmont over Christmas... it was amazing! I hope you like it!

amy w - over and under said...

I really enjoyed Somewhere, even the drawn out ennui scenes that she does so well, but it does feel a bit indulgent, like Sofia made the film for herself - which is fair enough! It was intruiging to say the least, I wanted to know what happened after the end ;)

ag. said...

Oh I'm such a romantic! My grandparents were married for 50 years and it makes my heart happy just thinking about it!

Anna said...

well these all rocked my world. those cats! the kisses! acks! : )

Fabulous round up!

bussbuss said...

Oooh I've been wanting to see that, but it's not out in LA yet (ironically!). But the Egyptian is playing classic movies this weekend AND Sixteen Candles is on the big screen (http://bussbuss.com/wp/2011/02/09/sixteen-candles/) so I hope to see something fun before heading to the desert for a few days (to spend VDay with Dave & Scott!).

xx,
kelly

p.s. GREAT article by Alex!

flowerchild said...

Have a happy weekend as well! And "Somewhere" was amazing - made me fall in love with LA! You will love it! :)

Miss Hothouse Orchid said...

Also, that photo series is great! I love real, honest love stories.

Amanda Elizabeth said...

I absolutely LOVED Somewhere. You will fall in love with the characters because you will feel like you are in their life for years. Enjoy!

Wendy said...

Have a wonderful weekend, Joanna!

I truly love all of Sofia's other movies, but seriously don't waste your money or time on SOMEWHERE!!! It was terrible!

Sera said...

oh my gosh, i am in love with that bra!

lynette said...

Loved the awesome Garance Dore article!

Laurel said...

i love when i'm reading a fabulous article on the times and then i notice it's written by your sweet hubby. :)

Monica said...

Sofia Coppola is an amazing writer and director but honestly the film did absolutely nothing for me! Being from S. Cali I feel it taught the stereotypical and obvious story of a celebrity but in a more appealing way yet there were no characters that became attached to me nor to my friends
:( Def. try to look deeer into it and maybe you'll discover something! cheers

Stephanie said...

Those kitties are cracking me up, I love them!

I am totally trying the DIY Smooch! Thanks!

caroline duke said...

ha! i read that story on garance (which was perfect) and didn't even realize it was by alex!

thank you for the link love, love.

have a beautiful weekend. hope it's warming up there!

Lana said...

Love the article about Garance.
Happy weekend!

Fabiola said...

This has been the BEST weekend post EVER! :)

SisterBatik said...

Hi there

I always enjoy reading your blog.

I am an eternal fan of Sophia Coppola's work - Lost in Translation - is one of my all time favorites - the understated comic of Bill Murray! I like her casual pace, subtleties and displacement of characters - which is what you get again with Somewhere. The young Elle Fanning is terrific!

I hope you enjoy the movie and have a great weekend too!

Very nice Alex. Love this time of year, everyone is so happy

steph said...

i've seen the movie preview for Somewhere, but i don't think the movie's out where i live yet ):

i'm definitely watching it though! seems like just the kind of vibe i like in movies ♥

Trina said...

What a cool interview. My intro to Garance Doré illos was on one of your Smitten posts.

Style, She Wrote said...

That is a sexy bra! And at a great price, too! xo style, she wrote

leilani.e said...

YOU"RE MARRIED TO THAT ALEX?? I'm supremely jealous, I love his writing. Someday I want to be that good! (After I finish up with J-school, and with a bit of luck and a lot of work, maybe writing for the NYTimes too! Oh dreams.)

Totally unrelated, but the photo series of married couples past their 50th was so bittersweet. My grandfather died just two or three weeks before his & oma's 50th, a few years past.

Vintage Pimento said...

The kittens are cute!... and that bra!!

megan lane said...

thanks for sharing that trailer.. i am definitely going to go see that film now! focus feature + sofia coppola + phoenix... how could you go wrong?

Notes from Holly St. said...

we saw Somewhere a few weeks ago and really liked it. It's true to Sophia Coppola's slow-paced style so just sit back and take it all in. There's also really little dialogue. We looked up the script and it's only about 42 pages! Enjoy your weekend! xo

Monique said...

I wasn't a fan of Somewhere...I am a huge fan of Sofia Coppola though.

Melissa Jade said...

we love sophia coppola but hated the movie. we kept waiting for it to get good. if you like watching people play wii for 10 minutes, and sit by a pool for 10 minutes, and such- then you may like it.

Catherine Masi said...

Lovely picks...
and I had no idea the Up Close Alex Williams is *your* Alex. He's quite good, of course. What a dynamic team you make!
Will you be keeping us posted on what you think about Somewhere? It's on my list of the very few movies I treat myself to each year!
Would love to hear your take.

The Girlie Blog said...

I want to see this movie too. Sophia Coppola is an excellent director(a).

Have a nice weekend!

caitlin b. hults said...

Somewhere isn't Sofia Coppola's best movie, but its definitely "hers". I think she trys too hard in this film.

Elle Fanning is lovely, charming and wonderful. Any scene with her is enchanting.

Stephan Dorf...is...um...well, not acting. He just stares off into space.

vosges paris said...

I love that black and white picture it remeinds me of an old movie poster from French.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

love the breathless photo. and that bra is stunning (love the underwear, too).

Joanne Angelina said...

Love this post! I thought "Somewhere" was not too bad, but I much prefer her other films as Marie Antoinette or Lost In Translation.
Wonderful post as always!
Much love!

Joanna said...

I liked Somewhere but only after a certain point - it's one of those 'interesting' movies, maybe.

I reviewed it http://www.ephemeraldigest.co.uk/2010/12/somewhere-review/ but would be good to know what you thought of it.

My Heart Blogged said...

I haven't seen the movie yet, have fun. Those wedding flowers are really cute.

Julienne said...

Hi Joanna,

Somewhere got 72% by critics and 49% by users. I wanted to watch it too, do let us know if it's good :)

Morgan B. said...

OMG! "Where Did I Come From?" My three year old needs that book. Ack! Where has the time gone? Thanks for the flashback and parenting advice. Have a great time at the movies!

Katie said...

i agree, Somewhere didn't blow me away. The acting, especially from elle, was compelling to watch, & the sense of nostalgia & ease with which SC brings together music & image really is interesting. But some of the earlier scenes (faded movie star watching porn, ice-skater daughter) seemed uninspiring & a little cliched...

Go see Never let me go - keira aside, it's a fantastic film!

Kim said...

I really enjoyed Somewhere but it seems to be a love or hate film, not so much happens for the most part but I enjoy watching people just be and these actors do it very well. Plus it shows how banal their lives can be.

Loved the Garance interview, she's very cool indeed

Европе said...

Thanks for the info ! I enjoyed your post !

Clare Elsaesser said...

wow joanna, so neat alex got to interview garance! can't wait to hear what you thought of somewhere, especially if it's anywhere near as good as breathless!! happy valentine's day, and so delighted you included my print in your wonderful weekend links! thank you xo

I read Alex's article on Garance Dore, then immediately checked out her blog to see what is new. Great piece, congrats to both of you. Oh, and finally made it to Jadore..BEST bras anywhere. Am sure I read about that place on your blog. All the best.

What a brilliant diy idea! I'll have to remember it for another special occasion :-)

Jaci said...

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I'd love to see a post about a night out with just you and Alex. Do you do anything special to prepare? Wear anything special? Do you talk about Toby when you're out, or keep it strictly adults-only? As a fellow new mom, I'd love some ideas.
