The Help Fashion

Happy Hump Day readers!

If you'll recall I did a book review of The Help (here) in the spring and simply raved about it!  Shortly after I read the book, my mom did too, and also loved it.  We were thrilled the movie was coming out and had been planning to see it just the two of us.

Needless to say, Mother Nature got in the way of our movie plans.  We had hoped to see it last Tuesday night, but after the earthquake, I just needed some time to chill and then we thought we might try to go Sunday, and Irene hit.  We finally made it yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed the movie.

I was quite impressed by the film.  I thought the director did a really good job of not changing too many things or leaving important details out.

What also impressed me in the film was the FASHION!  I have always loved clothes from the 50s and 60s and this movie provided me with some fashion eye candy.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Pink and green...with bows too!  What more could a girl want?

Even though this dress was "homemade" by Elizabeth, I thought the fabric was so beautiful.

This isn't the best photo, but Celia's top in this scene was so cute!  I would totally pair it with jeans and cowboy boots!

Skeeter certainly cleaned up nicely for her first date with Stuart!

Are you a fan of The Help?  Do you have a favorite fashion decade?

Have a great day!

  5. I'm still waiting for my mom to finish the book so we can go see the movie together :) I don't really wear 50s-60s clothing super well...I just try to go with a classic look that somehow transcends generations (lbd, white button up-jeans-frye boots, etc)
