The Hunger Games Weekend

Dorothy Perkins dress (worn as tunic), Levi's Boyfriend skinny jeans, Asos shoes, Lancel "Premier Flirt" bag, Orsay sunnies, Peerless Charm necklace c/o

This was one of those amazing weekends when my to do list was miraculously empty, I had nothing special to do and nowhere to be, when I was free to do whatever I wanted and just enjoy myself. Perfection. 
On Friday night we went to see the Hunger Games and thank goodness, I was very far from being disappointed. I've been hooked on Katniss' gripping story ever since I discovered the books a year ago and I really hoped that the movie would raise to the challenge and escape what I call "Harry Potter destiny" (in my opinion, the last two HP movies were a complete disaster). Fortunately, Gary Ross has made a better job than David Yates. Maybe the movie wasn't as powerful as the books, but it was still a huge punch in the face. It got me thinking about all those reality TV "stars" who try so hard to live their 15 minutes of fame. And those producers who try to come up with a more shocking and unforgettable concept every year. We become more and more desensitized to the violence on TV and we may be closer to seeing something similar to the Hunger Games on TV than we think. And that's something really scary, isn't it? 

What about you? Have you already seen the movie? What did you think about the movie rendition of the story? Don't hesitate to share your opinion!

PS: This is what I wore to see the movie: I wasn't quite ready for any Capitol-inspired outfit!

  11. I too saw the movie on Friday. I thought the movie was good, not great, but I also haven't read the books which I'd still like to do this summer before the next movie comes out. Also, I think I sat a little too close in the theater as I felt sick during the entire movie... I blame motion sickness! xoxo A-
