Julie & Julia

We recently watched Julie and Julia on DVD and loved it. Not only were our mouths watering from all the delicious looking food that Julia Childs (Meryl Streep) was cooking but from the gorgeous looking costumes and sets. Following the biography of Julia Childs, set for the most part in Paris in the 1950's we were treated to some classic styles, fabulous dresses, hats, shoes and bags.
The other half of the movie tells the story of blogger, Julie Powell , (Amy Adams) a New Yorker , who begins the movie in jeans and ends up in cute 1950's style pearls, vintage dresses and aprons by the end as she develops her obsession with the iconic Julia Child . Definitely worth a look!

  1. It's brilliant isn't it? The book is even better. If you can get a version of it on CD, do. It's read by Powell and there's an author Q&A at the end that I found fascinating.
