Late night on Sunday, April 18th I was browsing the net for something and an article with Eugenia Kim and Target in it caught my eye. I clicked it and was thrilled to learn that Eugenia Kim had made a line of hats for Target. I found out about Kim in 2004. While watching Charmed I saw a really kick ass hat on Phoebe and of course had to add it to my Charmed Fashion Boutique site. Her hats were so expensive (around $300) though that I never really thought about her again until now.

I read in a couple of press releases that they had been released that day. I checked out Target.com and many were already sold out (Don’t worry most are back in stock now). The next day I hit our only Target and they hadn’t even finished putting them out yet. The ones that were out weren’t my style and the team member just gave me a look like she didn’t know when they’d be put out.

So I came back the next day and all of the glorious hats were on display. I chose the Tan Fedora with Flower Applique and the Teal Straw Fedora with Black and White Trim. I also liked the Plaid Straw Fedora with Blue Trim (the parrot one). It was gonna be my substitute if they didn’t have either of my first choices. I liked the straw sunhat but it’s very beachy and I don’t have a beach nearby. The Engineer Hats are cute but not my style. I could definitely see my sister wearing them. They had a bunch of other hats on sale too. I scored an Exhilaration Leopard Fedora for $3.24.

The hats are so much fun and I haven’t had any problems with them. Check out the photos below for a closer look.

Check out a short interview with Eugenia Kim here.

Eugenia Kim for Target hats retail from $14.99-$19.99 (a steal!).

4 out of 5 stars
starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin

FYI: Be aware of the fact that I don’t write and only skim in depth movie reviews. Spoilers aren’t my thing. To me reviews are about whether or not I (or you) should see it.

When It’s Complicated was released I was super excited to see it. It looked like it was right up my alley. Plus it stars Alec Baldwin who I watch (& salivate over) regularly on 30 Rock. Then I started seeing movie reviewers putting the movie down and basically say “gross, old people in love”. That’s when I thought about my reaction. I’m not into watching senior romances anymore than any other 20 something woman. However this film stars two actors that I love. I was a big fan of Streep growing up because of the movie Death Becomes Her. My sister and I used to watch it all of the time. I rewatched it on Christmas Eve and it still rocked. Alec was trickier to figure out. While growing up my favorite Baldwin , as a child of the 90s, was Stephen not Alec. I remember liking the Juror but I didn’t really care much about Alec until he started to do an amazing job of guest hosting Saturday Night Live. Incidentally, Martin and Baldwin appeared together in a sketch on SNL not long ago.

I unsuccessfully tried to see the film quite a few times before I actually was able to but the wait was worth it. The film is about a woman who starts seeing her ex husband again after they’ve been divorced for years. The complicated decision is whether or not she actually wants to pursue this. Add a dash of a love triangle with Martin and some overly affectionate offspring and you get the general plot. The fun comes in getting to see Streep, Baldwin and Martin act silly and happy and rediscovering love.

Another great thing about this movie is it’s rated R. So many romantic comedies come out that are PG or PG-13 and sex is hinted at or giggled about like the characters are 11 or something. This movie is more realistic. These are normal adults who get laid, drink, etc. Plus Baldwin is a little self deprecating which is nice to see for a change. Martin also surprised me as a more meek, forlorn character than he usually plays. There are quite a few talented actors in the supporting cast. This includes John Krasinksi who I’m glad to see acting again after I tried to watch that movie he directed, ugh. I think one of the reasons I really dig this movie is because I can sympathize with all three of the main characters (from different times of course). BTW-If you’re looking for a laugh this is more sweet funny than knee slapping funny.

Verdict: If you like romantic comedies Rent/Buy this.

Buy It’s Complicated on Blu-ray or DVD.

Rent It’s Complicated on Netflix.

Buy Death Becomes Her and Saturday Night Live-The Best of Alec Baldwin on DVD.

I chose the Sergeant sexy costume – Costume – EdenFantasys because a few years ago while costume shopping with a friend she had tried on a similar costume and looked fab. So my expectations were pretty high.

CIMG0482

The set includes the blue longsleeve zip front 100% polyester police romper, a vinyl hat, handcuffs, baton and belt. The last three were all plastic. The style of the romper is described as boyshorts but they are so short that you may feel a bit like Lady Gaga. The romper appears to be pretty durable. It has a patch with POLICE wrote on the left breast which is more coy than some other cop outfits I’ve seen for sale. The cuffs and lapels also add something special to the romper.

The hat showed up completely smushed. I tried to push it in to place, then I left it sitting out for quite a while before I got around to wearing the costume but it was still messed up when I went to wear it. Despite that the hat is very fun to wear. I love the big badge on it and it really gets you into character. I wasn’t as keen about the other accessories. The baton is very flimsy. If actually hit someone with it I think I’d be completely bent and ruined. Once for a party I bought a pack of 10 plastic cuffs from a dollar store for $1. These cuffs looks just like those but don’t work as well. They don’t stay closed.

top 1st

Now here’s the major problem I had with the outfit. It wasn’t even close to fitting me. I wear a size 10 and am a C cup. According to the Leg Avenue size chart a Medium/Large should fit a size 10-14. You can see what the size chart says the measurements should be. These are the actual measurements of the romper I received: Chest 32″, Waist 26-27″, Hip 31″, Inseam 2″, Length (from the highest point of the neck) 28.5″. The belt measures 30-37″. If you actually were the size of the costume the belt would be too big. I would say size up but the eden fantasys site doesn’t have a larger size. At first it made me feel bad because like many women I need/have been trying to lose about 10lbs. Then I realized that this would probably only have fit me comfortably back when I was 18 and had disordered eating. I was left wishing I had picked out one of the many other cop outfits that they offer.

Other than that it is a nice romper and pretty strong because it didn’t tear even though I was poured into it. I would pair it with boots or stilettos. You could also wear a pair of tights. If you really want to play the part I would suggest buying some stronger cuffs separately. eden fantasys offers some good looking handcuffs you may want to check out: Black handcuffs – Handcuffs – EdenFantasys or Police handcuff – Handcuffs – EdenFantasys

TV
Ugly Betty
Recently Ugly Betty had it’s Series Finale. I was a fan of the show during the first season. I knew I had to check it out because I had been a fan of America’s from Real Women Have Curves and I loved Eric Mabius in Black Circle Boys when I was a teen. Over the next few years it was a little too over the top. I only watched it occasionally. I thought that the finale was really good but they could have made it 2 hours. You can watch it on ABC.

FILM
Netflix
Flicks now streaming on Netflix include Moon (Sam Rockwell), A Scanner Darkly and Tape. I highly recommend all three of these films.

TRAILERS
I Love You Philip Morris-I’ve been dying to see this movie starring Jim Carrey as a newly gay con man who falls for Ewan McGregor. Unfortunately the release date keeps getting pushed. It was March, then April, now it’s fall. At this rate the DVD won’t be out until 2011, sigh.
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoFANivV44g[/youtube]

Dinner For Schmucks-This flick starring Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis is a remake of the 1998 French film the Dinner Game which is very funny. It’s about a group who try to outdo each other by inviting the dumbest guest to dinners. This one looks like a winner.
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZ4i_woBTF8[/youtube]

The Killers-I’m not really sure about this one. It’s an action romantic comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. She hasn’t made a good romantic comedy yet.
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jUPUJ9vw20[/youtube]

Beastly-This is getting press because of Mary-Kate Olsen appearing in it. It’s like MTV’s take on the Beauty and the Beast fable. I think I would have loved this as a preteen. It could be a big hit.

The Other Guys-Buddy cop comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell as two doofy cops. At least it looks better than Cop Out.

The Big Lebowski
: A XXX Parody-You know I love these porn parody trailers.

Australian actor Alex O’Loughlin came to my attention in 2007 when he starred as Mick the private eye vampire in Moonlight. I loved this series. This was prior to the whole vampire craze of Twilight and True Blood. It had poor ratings and was canceled after one season.

Recently he starred in the medical drama Three Rivers. Despite the show being set in Pittsburgh, PA (not far from me) it didn’t really interest me and I didn’t watch it. I’m not a hospital show type of gal although I do watch Grey’s Anatomy & Private Practice occasionally.

Now O’Loughlin is starring in the newest J. Lo vehicle The Back-up Plan which is a cheesy romantic comedy. So I’m all over that.

Up next Alex will be playing Det. Steve McGarrett in a remake of the series Hawaii Five-O.
