Five Take: Movie Character

March 19, 2012

This week’s Five Take theme was channeling a movie character, and since I failed majorly at the 1990’s theme last week, I decided to pick a 90’s movie. I seriously spent hours looking into different 90s movies, and I didn’t find one that excited me until I looked into one of my absolute favorite movies: That Thing You Do. Even though it was a 90s film, the story line was set in the 60s, so I got to channel Liv Tyler’s character, Faye Dolan, in the scene where she runs into the appliance store because the Oneder’s song was playing on the radio.

Here’s a little video that shows the scene at 36 seconds into it:

Here’s my best Faye Dolan:

 I channeled the look with Evans’ ankle length skinny jeans, an Eloquii sweater, and my hair pushed back by a headband. I switched some things up by adding the animal print shoes and going with the red lip color. I like to think of this look as Faye Dolan once she gets out of the small town and gets a (slight) wild streak.

Of course, I can’t be Faye Dolan without doing a little celebratory dance:

Since I missed last week, make sure you check out the Five Take ladies’ 90s AND movie character posts. I can’t wait to see which character they chose 🙂

These will be updated as the posts go up:

Becky at The Ramblings of Mrs. BeBe: 90s and Movie Character

Gina at Fat, Fit, Fine

Claire at A Monkey Fatshionista: 90s

Nicole at A Well-Rounded Venture: 90s

What do you think of my That Thing You Do look? Which movie character’s style would you like to try?

      Thanks! I’ve had the shoes for years and barely wear them. I don’t know what’s wrong with me! haha

      Thanks! I’ve been getting into green colors more. For awhile, I was all corals and reds. Time to expand my choices 🙂

    First off, I LOVE that movie so so much! How cute is Liv Tyler? You nailed her look so perfectly! The color of the top is fantastic and I love how you’ve paired the shoes with the whole look! Just fantastic!

      Yay! A fellow lover of the movie 🙂 I love Liv Tyler in it. I have to admit I was torn between this and her character in Empire Records (thankful that I went for this one as the other is much more scantily clad, ahha). Thanks for the comment, Brooke!
