The Grand Old Duke of York....(with an outfit thrown in for good measure)

A few weeks ago I went to the Duke of York cinema in Brighton, I love going to the cinema but the fact that the DOY is an old fashioned cinema with loads of history it kind of makes it more fun and less commercial. You can find out the history here (if you are interested in old cinemas. :) 
Taken with instagram, you can find me on @gembig
When we arrived we were met by this lovely couple who had just got married.  I love a good wedding and this vintage one looked like it was going to be lots of fun. I love that her heart shaped bouquet matches her hair, shoes and balloons. And the Mr was in keeping with the colour scheme as his cravat and pocket hankie were red and turquoise. 

So we went to see Headhunters which was actually really good, I didn't know anything about it and we both had a moment as it started and whispered down the line ''did you know it was going to be subtitles?" oops no! But we both really enjoyed it and I found it quite similar to the Millennium Series by Stieg Larsson.
As it wasn't raining I wore my newish jeans that I keep avoiding wearing because I don't know what to wear with them. I teamed them with a navy vest and this little primark cardigan that I found a few weeks ago.  I am trying to add a bit of fun and colour into my wardrobe and trying really hard to step out of my comfort zone of boring black clothes. 
the whole outfit is from Primark
I don't have a helper/photographer/boyfriend  as such to take my photos so I'm doing the classic 'I'm trying not to look at the camera while I take my own photo in a mirror look pose'  for the next outfit post I will try enlist my housemates to help. 
And after a busy Saturday afternoon what better way to chill on the sofa and play along with the voice. Our sofa is waay to big to turn around, we found this way much more fun!! 

Hope you had a lovely weekend, what did you get up too?

  1. I love every bit of this post. Vintage cinema, red and turquoise weddings, and cute outfits. I have a boyfriend who sometimes can take photos, but we mostly see each other on the weekends and sometimes a photo session doesn’t happen. Thus, I totally understand the mirror pose. Self-timer works too!

    1. Thanks for the tip Jen, I have just downloaded a timer for the iPad so fingers crossed I will be able to twirl hands free tomorrow :) xx
