[Inspired by] Jen Garner in Valentine's Day

I actually saw Valentine's Day with my best friend when it came it in theaters back in February.  Even though we only went because of the all-star cast, we still had low expectations.  Overall it was cute, not great, and if they would have cut a few storylines (only created to shove in more big names, eh hmm Anne Hathaway) it probably could have been better.

Either way, I like to think that Jen Garner and Ashton Kutcher are the "main" characters in this ensemble cast.  Which is perfect because I love them both.... does that count as a guilty pleasure??

Anywho, I LOVED Jen Garner's cute-as-a-school-teacher's-apple outfit that she was wearing for the majority of the first half of the film.  So much so, I previously made a polyvore styled spinoff and even 'wishlisted' certain items....

Do you ever find yourself trying to recreate outfits inspired by movie characters? (other than anything Audrey Hepburn, ha!).... 

Happy Shopping!


  1. Yes, the last time I was inspired to recreate someone's wardrobe was Andy (Anne Hathaway) in the Devil Wears Prada. I still haven't been quite successful, but I loved so many of her "after" pieces.

  2. One of my guilty pleasures is to overload my time on long plane rides with psuedo-good girly movies - like Valentine's Day, or It's Complicated, or Nanny Diaries, Because I Said So ... etc. No Oscar winners for me here.

    I don't think I ever tried to recreate a look from a movie but did get looks of uber-fashion inspiration from Devil Wears Prada (like fshnonmymind mentioned), Sex and the City (of course!) and The Proposal.

  3. Uh, this movie was terrible with a capital T! But I guess it was terrible in a cute way, LOL. Jen Garner and Ashton are both very likable.

    Her wardrobe was so sweet in this movie!

  4. Fshn - Yes! Sooo many awesome fashion moments in Devil Wears Prada!

    Lisa - I hear ya... I have to be in the mood to watch something heavy and serious... i normally stick to light movies - comedies and bad chick flicks :)

    Andi - I hear ya... I actually think it had potential to be a cute romcom (I didn't say good, just cute).. but they tried to cram wayy too many pointless story lines in... Jen Garner is one of my favs, I think she's adorable.... and I used to be a huge Alias fan :)

  5. I love those shoes! I actually was debating about buying them.

    I still can't decide if the platform is to high. If you end up buying them can you do a review?

    I agree with Fshn Andy in the Devil Wears Prada had some great outfits! Especially her leather jacket/interview outfit towards the end of the movie.

    Check out my blog if you get a chance!

  6. Hi Alicia! I think the platform is just right. I have the pair in the polyvore set from Banana Republic (summer '09) and I think they are perfect, *but* I'm only 5'2"... I might change my mind if I were taller...
