Eat Pie

Like many of y'all, I was fortunate enough to go see a pre-screening of The Help with my Junior League girls last night.  Such a fun treat!  I really had such a fabulous girls night and loved that the movie promoters reached out to Junior Leagues nation-wide as the JL plays such a big role in the story line.

Holy guacamole!  Y'all must go see The Help when it hits theaters in a few weeks!  I laughed and cried and just truly loved it.  Emma Stone was fantastic.  Sissy had the best one liners.  Allison Janney is one of my favorite actresses so I was thrilled to see her.  Viola Davis had me in tears.  And Octavia Spencer had one of the best deliveries that I've ever seen.

Hated Hilly (though Bryce Dallas Howard was phenomenal in the role).  Gosh, she was just dreadful!  And yet so damn relevant still today.  A tea partier for sure.

But my favorite part of the movie was actually the costuming.  I'd wear most of those outfits (sans the high heels and any shoe that even remotely resembles white because for whatever reason, I loathe white shoes) today.  I have my mind set on duplicating a particular cardigan worn at the end by Skeeter with this cute ribbon detail on the edges.  Did anyone else notice it?  It's the one she's wearing below but it's not the best angle.  Trust me, it's adorable.

I want to be Skeeter!  Or Skeeter-esque.  Love her!

Words to live by...
You is kind.  You is good.  You is important.

I've only heard good things about this movie ~ whew, so often the movie isn't as good as the book. We have a GNO planned when it hits the theaters.

Thanks for the review ~

I don't go to see many movies but you can bet that I will see this one. Glad to hear that it is worth going to see!

You are so lucky...I cannot wait to see this movie (and the clothes)! My most favorite book EVER!!

Fun! I'm looking forward to seeing it but I've got to finish the book first. Glad you had fun!

Amen to that. I can't wait to go see the movie. I handed the book to my teenage daughter and she read it. Now we're both excited to go see it together.
I got a kick out of Miss Celia and the check she wrote to Miss Hilly. "For two slice Hilly". Yes maam! Now that's what I'm talking about.

Can't wait to see this - read the book earlier this the summer and loved it. Hilly certainly earned her spot in the villain-hall-of-fame and I can imagine that Bryce Dallas Howard in that role will be deliciously evil. :)

The outfits look amazing I can't wait to see it. I've already finished the book and it is so good. I'm so jealous you got to see it early.

Wasn't it amazing?? I can't wait until it comes out so I can go see it again. I was laughing one minute and crying the next. And the dresses were fantastic!
