The Devil Wears Prada

I was really quite surprised at myself when I worked out that I hadn't read this yet. A fashion classic! I have seen the movie a countless amount of times, and I love it. The book has to be fantastic, right?

The first thing I noticed was the size. It was pretty thick, considering the size of the brain-dead books I've been reading lately. The plot is roughly the same as the movie. Slight changes- Emily is nice, Miranda is more evil, and there is a large focus on Andrea's best friend, Lilly, who isn't even mentioned on screen.

As I plowed through the book, devouring every couture brand name mentioned, I began to get well... annoyed. Just quit already! She has terrible working conditions, she complains about it on every page, she loses her boyfriend and her best friend, and she stays. By the end of the book, it seems pretty repetitive.

Overall, the book is better than the movie, but so frustrating. I haven't read the end yet, but I'm guessing she finally quits, and all those frustrated readers become relived. And we all go back to eating cereal out of the box and not worrying about Andrea's future.

Small town world

So for Valentines Day, (still going on about it) my family and I had a quaint brunch in the cutest little town. I decided to experiment with the look a little, with the dress that I made and have never worn. Paired with my new boots from Target, ( I know right! $50!) and some mismatched bracelets, (The ones that didn't somehow get stuck together with a mysterious purple glue) it looked pretty cute. Not sure what the vibe was, but still cute.

So, just the usual has been happening. Math exams, boiling hot weather and a lot of reading (mainly The Clique). What's been happening with you, fellow bloggers?

Chambray love

This look includes my dad's shirt which I have tried so many times to style but finally got it right! With my Miss Shop boots, as always... they make every outfit better. The Dotti boater helps too, even if I can't wear it in public due to the lack of stability on my head.
