DOLLOP OF DAISY

Lookbook: Girlhood

8/11/2014

Over the weekend I enjoyed my cheat days and had some sushi and crab cake dinners. But before that, I ran a few errands, which included stopping at the post to pick up this bad boy and taking a trip to Target. I think we all know that you can never just get one thing at Tarjay. I went for a new flat iron (results in the photos) and ended up also getting this lovely blouse. I saw it sitting on a clearance rack and couldn't help but love the design. Once I realized that I had the perfect pair of pink C. Wonder pants to go with it, I was sold! You're sold too, right?

Another thing I did was watch the movie Boyhood (which is why I titled this Girlhood)Have you heard of it? It's a movie (not a documentary) about a boy going through life from age 6-18. But what makes it interesting is that it actually follows the same actor during those 12 years, which means this film took a dozen years to shoot. So yeah, that aspect of Boyhood is super cool and unlike other movies. And overall, it was well done. But because it follows this kid through those awkward teen years, it has a lot of awkward and mundane moments. And even a few scenes that would not make feminists proud. While I would give it at least 3 out of 5 hearts (and not the 98% that critics are saying), I would recommend that you see it for yourself. Something different--yes, but nothing new.
