Inspiration Post: The Help





























As you probably know, I'm head-over-heels in love with the 60's. Whenever I'm stumped and feel uninspired, I turn to the 60's for fashion inspiration. But while I claim to be a 60's fashion aficionado, my 60's American history knowledge leaves something to be desired.

The Help actually opened my eyes to the ugly side of this decade. For all its charm and beauty, there are underlying social problems that have yet to be brought to light. I love this film so much. I never truly understood the depths of racial discrimination in the past decades until I saw this film. There's so much emotion in it and yet there are lots of moments of levity that did not make it too depressing. Plus, it stars Emma Stone so I'm sold. 

Go see this film if you haven't yet. I bet you'll love it as much as I do. In the meantime, enjoy my stills.

  2. I'm in love with the 60s too and I love to learn more about the history of this era.

    I've had this film downloaded for the longest time but I'm yet to watch it. I must make that my priority for tomorrow!

  4. Ooooooo, you reminded me that I wanted to see this movie (and read the book!!)!!!!! I've heard such great things about both of them (for different reasons, as it goes when books are made into movies) and, like you, enjoy taking in Emma Stone's beauty for a couple hours hahah.

    Hope all is well,
    Cassie
