Style Trumps Plot.

So I finally saw 500 Days of Summer [I love Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a total dreamboat] and it was...meh. I wasn't crazy about the plot. It's all about this emotionally unavailable girl and this guy who somehow thinks he can change all that. Story of my life, only I'm the heartbroken guy. And frankly this Summer gal just seems kinda mean, I don't what's so damn charming about her. She likes the Smiths. Like that's a fucking revelation. Anyone who wasn't a cheerleader or football player in high school likes the Smiths. Tell me she likes Bikini Kill or Minor Threat. That would have been interesting. But we're not here to discuss quasi-depressing semi-mediocre cinema. Let's talk fashion! This film is chock-o-block full of fantastic frocks and dapper duds. Joseph GL just melts my heart in those little sweater vests and ties. And her little nipped-waist ensembles are just the cat's meow. I would re-watch for the getups alone. Here you go. A feast for your little style-starved eyes.
