Dress like Coraline!

Did anyone else go see Coraline this weekend?!? We saw it Sunday in 3D (recommended) and loved it!! It's very beautiful and inspiring.. I think Alysson's head was going to explode! I admit that like usual, I was caught up in the "costumes" throughout the movie, though these were tiny clothes created for a precocious pre-teen claymation girl. She is quite a dresser and the whole time I was thinking Where did she get that amazing captain's hat!?? I searched my favorite online sources and put together 2 looks channeling our new friend Coraline's edge... in a grown up human way of course :)

LOVE Coraline's captain hat and yellow rain jacket, perfect for stomping through the rainy garden mud.. Her friend Wybie had some cool clothes too but that's anotha post...

leather greek fisherman's cap from
The Executive Shop, butterfly hair clips and yellow wellies from Asos, striped gloves and clear umbrella from Urban Outfitters, rain trench from JCrew

The outfit her "other mother" gives to her is tre adorable..

rhinestone star earrings, one shoulder star top and blue ankle booties from
Asos; star sweaters all from ebay, black skinny pants from Urban, black ankle booties with blue studs by Sigerson Morrisson for Target; nail polish in "opening night" and "skinny jeans" by OPI for Sephora.

Go See it now!! xxooxxoo

I am really excited to see this one. Although, I will most likely have to Netflix it. Very cute recap!

I am so glad you are blogging! And fashion blogging at that! I would love to be able to pull off the dress and slouchy boot look. I would live in sundresses if I could! Pointers?

I saved my 3D glasses from the SuperBowl just for this movie!

Thanks for all the tips. I am probably too old to rock any of these looks but I may steal one or two here and there ...

My big thing right now is to find some awesome rain boots since it is pouring in Cali and expected to continue through month's end!

I totally need some rain boots too! We saw the movie and my boys loves the extreme elderly animated clevage!
