The Other Woman movie with Popsugar

Movie screenshot from The Other Woman

Popsugar invited some NYC bloggers to a screening of The Other Woman this week, and it was such a fun event to attend! In the movie, Carly (Cameron Diaz) discovers that her perfect boyfriend (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau AKA Jamie Lannister from Game of Thrones) is married to Kate (Leslie Mann), and when the two of them discover yet ANOTHER mistress, Amber (Kate Upton), all the ladies team up together to take him down. I’m not really one for super sappy chick flicks, so I was happy that The Other Woman didn’t veer off in that direction. It was straight up hilarious and showed the special bonds we have with our girlfriends in a very sweet but real way. One of my favorite scenes was when Carly and Kate drink the night away and play dress up in Carly’s incredible closet in a drunken laughing stupor – I couldn’t help but smile and think about all the absolutely ridiculous moments I’ve had with my own girlfriends over the years. Watch the trailer below at the :45 mark to see a snippet!

And of course, the wardrobe choices in the film were nothing short of fabulous. I found myself oohing and ahhing over Kate the housewife’s outfits the most. Her style had a very feminine and slightly retro look that I actually found really wearable. Does this mean I’m bound for the suburbs of Connecticut?! Carly, on the other hand, worked as a high powered attorney who wore lots of sleek and classic looking pieces, and Amber’s outfits had a young beachy feel consisting of a lot of denim cut offs, casual tees, and tank tops. Oh yes, and bikinis…I mean you gotta work that in when it comes to Kate Upton, right?

When the movie ended and the giggles subsided, there was a Q&A session with the movie’s legendary costume designer, Patricia Field. This lady is responsible for dressing the casts of Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada, and my personal favorite, Ugly Betty! She talked about her secret to creating believable characters on screen (finding common ground between actors and their personas), and focusing on creating an authentic look rather than picking pieces in the hopes that they’ll become the next big fad. Interesting stuff!

The Other Woman opens on April 25, so round up your ladies for a fun night out!

Colsubsidio book posters

Peter Pan and The Werewolf, Alice in Wonderland and The Sword in the Stone, Rapunzel and Don Quixote (via Behance)

I wrote about these super cool book promoting posters a while back, and now there’s a new batch to fall in love with! As the campaign’s tagline “Come with a story and leave with another” hints at, each poster cleverly depicts two different storybook icons. The mash ups are a little harder to figure out than in the previous versions, but the richer colors and details evens out the scorecard in my book!

friday grab bag april 14

Happy Friday! After somehow twisting my ankle AND coming down with a fever over the past few days, I’m going to take the hint and take a week off from the blog to pull myself together before my head falls off too. See you guys back here in a week! This week I’m loving…

  • This beautiful wood ring box from Woodstorming that would make any wedding engagement just a tad bit sweeter
  • The blue waters of the world’s largest swimming pool at the San Alfonso del Mar Resort in Chile, which holds an incredible 66 million gallons of water. Bucket listed!
  • Pretty much everything about this star filled toddler room decorated by SISSY+MARLEY from Mom’s Best, especially that teeny tiny bed
  • These clever baby shower invitations from The Indigo Bunting that look like perfect little dumplings

PS. This goes against the whole “resting up” thing, but I’ve been working on an incredibly exciting project I just can’t wait to share with you all. Details soon!
