The Boy In The Striped Pajamas

Last night Hal and I watched The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. This movie was amazing. I had never even heard of it before. I loved it. I love most WWII anything though. For some weird reason I am obsessed with 40s vintage style things. And I happen to be really interested in WWII also. Hal said that the mother in it reminded him of me. He said she was pretty and she dressed in the 40s which I love. Not because she has a meltdown... Well, I guess I would have a melt down too if I were her.

Isn't she pretty? I wish I could have some of her clothes from this movie. I want to dress my little boys like the boy in this movie. People just dressed better back then. But I guess that would mean I would have to wear a dress or a skirt all of the time. Sigh, I would totally be worth it.

Can someone please teach me how to do 40s style hair?

You should go watch it, go Netflix it, it's worth it. It's one of the best movies I have seen in a while. It made me tear up, and I don't cry at movies.

Maybe one day we can have a 40s style party and everyone can dress up as amazing as they did back then. It's funny, I was totally jealous of this photo shoot and then we watched this movie, and it made me even more jealous. Maybe I'll have to plan a vintage photo shoot for myself one of these days.

In other news. It got up to 60 last week. I was so stoked. It snowed last night. And it's supposed to snow more tonight. This is a cruel game you're playing, mother nature.

It sounds like a great movie! And I'm with you on how people dressed back then. Somedays I really wish fashion would get us back to "classy" instead of casual. :-p

I'll have to check it out! :)

Mike and I watched this movie cuz it was on Encore, and wow, crazy. On a side note, I love "playing" dress-up too. You should do a party, for the 4th of July, since we'll be in Utah that weekend!

The book is even better. The movie follows the book very closely but books are always better.
