Movie Themed Outfit

You're on your way to the The Fault in Our Stars movie premier wearing this stunning outfit! 

About the movie, Fault in our Stars

Have you heard about this movie? Until xofaith03 pulled together this outfit using my bag, I hadn't heard of it either. Right now I still have a lump in my throat after reading the synopsis of the book by John Green which narrates a teenage love story from the point of view of a young girl living with cancer. The title of the book is inspired by a famous line from Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar (Act 1, scene 2). The nobleman Cassius says to Brutus, 'The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings. I don't want to include any spoilers but the novel (and presumably the movie) ends with the boyfriend’s words. He says getting hurt in this world is inevitable, but we do get to choose who we allow to hurt us, and that he is happy with his choice. He hopes she likes her choice too. The final words of the novel come from the heroine, who says "I do." The author made a deliberate choice to end the tragic story with words normally associated with marriage.

Casual and Sporty!
