Mod Cloth is currently having a contest to put together an outfit inspired by Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, which happens to be one of my favorite movies of the year! The winner gets a gift certificate to Mod Cloth and a BluRay copy of the movie. Since I loved Moonrise Kingdom soooo much, I thought I’d enter the contest.
Here’s what I came up with:
The contest ends tomorrow (Friday, 19 Oct), so if you’re interested in entering, go HERE for more details.
And if you’re not familiar with Moonrise Kingdom, it was written by Anderson and Roman Coppola, and the film is set off the coast of New England during the 1960s, and follows Sam and Suzy, pair of 12-year olds who have fallen in love with each other. They make a secret pact to meet up and run away into the wilderness together. Shenanigans occur as a search party consisting of the local sheriff, Suzy’s parents, and a troop of Khaki Scouts look for them, and the oncoming storm doesn’t help them much either. It’s hilarious, adorable, witty, and happens to be out on DVD/Blu Ray right now, so you should totally check it out!
I absolutely loved Suzy’s outfits, with her knee high socks and saddle shoes and cute dresses. Who knew women all over would be looking to a 12-year old for fashion inspiration? I sure as hell didn’t dress as well as Suzy when I was her age. Then again, I grew up in the 90s. o__0
