The other night I watched W./E. for the first time.  Co-written and directed by Madonna, W./E. intertwines two stories, one of the love affair of Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII and the other of a modern woman’s fascination with this affair.  I found it to be mesmerizing, as it did not take the Hollywood approach to glamorize their love affair but also depicted how the couple was ostracized by the press and England.  Even if you have no interest in the plot, watch this movie to have outfits to lust over!

A lover of history, I enjoy exploring the Barbary Coast in search of fashion, food and Jack Kerouac’s old haunts.
