It has been an epic amount of time since I've done a post like this but I felt it was time and I'm presenting one of my favorite movies of all time, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I actually went to the movie theater by myself and saw this movie when it came out, I knew nothing about it and I'm pretty sure I was nursing a broken heart at the time. This was one of the movies I skipped out of classes to see a matinee for (how can you beat those matinee prices and the lack of crowds?) I'm not much of a crier at the movies but if I was this one probably would have made me do it. Now I own the movie, the blu-ray, and the soundtrack. I also regularly search for anything related to the movie on etsy and ebay. For those of you who haven't seen it, SEE IT! But for those of you unlucky souls (just kidding but this movie is a serious masterpiece in my humble opinion) who haven't seen it, there is always time, want to come over and watch it? I have some kettle corn! Here is a brief synopsis (taken directly from imdb): A couple undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories when their relationship turns sour, but it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with.

I don't think I could have enough praise in the world for this movie, it is wonderfully acted, written, directed, styled... just everything about it I love. But in this post I will be focusing on the style of the main female character, Clementine Kruczynski (whose last name I always have to google) played by the amazing and beautiful Kate Winslet (have I mentioned I've wanted to be her since I was a little girl?). She plays a very free spirited character with a very bright and unique sense of style and personality. She is eclectic and complicated but very interesting.

Onto the outfits I conjured up. First with the inspiration outfit:

My take on it:

Last but not least, inspiration outfit 3:

My take on it (and a few other outfits sprinkled throughout the movie):

Clem Outfit 3

Clementine seems like the type of person who would heavily thrift shop, maybe perhaps even knit her own scarves and stuff, who would love vintage, etsy, small shops and boutiques. The type of person who would definitely have a flair for combining textures, patterns, and colors. How do you think I did? Have you seen the movie? Did you like the movie? What movie should I do next?

I know I've stressed this already but this is the type of movie that is best seen more than once, it is jam packed full of amazing details. Happy movie viewing!

I love this movie too. I had to watch it a second time before all the pieces fell into place for me, but it truly is a heart wrenching love story. It was one of those epic life changing movies for me, it made me re-evaluate all my relationships, how many times have you thought 'I wish I couldn't remember any of this'. More times than I can count! I think more than anything, it made me realise that even the bad relationships can have a positive effect on your life, so never forget how important they were!

I love your outfit choices! I agree she probably thrifted or hand made many of her pieces. I'm no good at a hippie boho look, I wish I could pull these off! xx

@Olivia - It is one of my favorite movies of all time, I feel teary eyed almost every single time I watch it. I agree, I had to see it more than once because so much is going on in it. Yeah, I had a lot of similar experiences in my past - it's hard to let go of the bad memories and hard to live with the good memories after a relationship turns so sour with someone. I agree too, bad relationships and friendships are learning experiences.

Thank you! I agree, her character had a very unique, one of a kind sort of feel to her wardrobe choices. I'm no good at the boho look either, I'm okay at choosing looks for someone else but for myself I'm always like "meh" and go to my staples.
