colormenana 's Thoughts:

The military trend seems to be still running strong, but I haven’t really yet tried it out until now with my new James Jeans pair. The cargo pant really is the chicest way to incorporate the trend into one’s wardrobe. It’s so unlike those scary old pairs that were all the rage at Abercrombie & Fitch some years ago. It’s still a little tomboy, but its skinny, low-rise fit and stretchy material make it fashion-forward and edgy. I kept things casual here with a striped top, but I have also worn these pants with an elegant lace one, and the juxtaposition of feminine and masculine made for a wonderful effect. Just shows how versatile this pair really is!

In movie news, I saw Eat Pray Love this weekend. The movie was not bad, but I felt that something was definitely missing, especially when it came to character development. The crying bathroom scene was also not that convincing to me. I did not believe it at all. There were a few emotional parts that I felt myself moved by, but I left the theater feeling that there could have been so much more. I thoroughly loved the Bali section of the movie, especially since I visited Bali earlier this year. It was my favorite part of the book, too. That country is so spectacular – a true paradise! Also, Javier Bardem makes one sexy Brazilian man (my heart is fluttering)! And Julia Robert always lights up the big screen with her smile. She radiates and you cannot help but love her. But other than that, the movie did not live up to the book at all. The previews made me so excited, and I hate being let down. I watched that Miley Cyrus movie The Last Song today and I was moved more by it than Eat Pray Love. That says a lot! haha. But hey, that’s Hollywood. Anyways, I still want to visit Italy, India, and go back to Bali again. I am so ready to start my own Eat + Pray + Love adventure! I am sure it will be more exciting than the movie version!
