You're probably wondering what is The Godfather doing in the title of a fashion blog post? It's my favorite movie of all times and I'm quite sure it's going to stay my no.1 forever because it's quite impossible to achieve and to repeat the perfection of that amazing masterpiece.
Everything started when I was 12 or 13 and watched the movie for the first time. All the girls from my class were crazy about Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, the Backstreet Boys. Well, I was a bit different... Those big, stunning Al Pacino's eyes, the entire plot, amazing Marlon Brando's role as don Vito Corleone, the whole atmosphere in the movie and the world of Italian mobsters have hypnotized me from the very beginning.
After all those years I still think Al Pacino is one of the most talented actors ever. His expressive eyes and facial expressions speak more than words.
A couple of years later when I was already in highschool I also read Mario Puzo's novel and although it's not as excellent as the movie I just loved it. Mom used to tell me: "Geez, Petra, you're so obsessed with mobsters and The Godfather that you could actually write a graduation thesis about the topic. Stop watching that stupid movie all over again and start studying for your exams!"
Guess what! The title of my thesis is "Mario Puzo's The Godfather - its impact upon Italian American identity". My thesis defense is in a week, hooray! Can't wait.
My little "baby" (a.k.a. thesis) is finished and ready for the next Wednesday.
This photo of Pacino is on the wall of one of the bars in Tkalčićeva Street in Zagreb. I just couldn't resist and had to take a photo of the thesis together with Pacino.
And now the outfit. It's nothing special because today I had no inspiration - I picked up the first T-shirt and shorts from the pile 'cause I just wanted to wear something short and comfortable as it's warm again. Summer is back. MyPerfectLounge, you were right. ;)
