Maybe it’s my recent relocation to New England or the fact that I love stories about two people irresponsibly running away together, but Moonrise Kingdom has quickly become my favorite movie. Set on a small island off the New England coast in the summer of 1965, the movie tells the tale of 12-year-old romantics Sam and Suzy who run away together, and of the adults who chase them. The all star cast includes Bill Murray, possibly the most desirable man on the planet, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, and Edward Norton. Wes Anderson brings his signature dream-like storytelling and wash of warm colors to the screen with costume designer Kasia Walicka Maimon.

I’m in love with her portable record player and her taste in French music. Shes a babe. You can find similar ones on eBay for pretty reasonable prices, I found one similar to the one in the movie for about $35.00. Not bad!
Im also pretty sure that any respectable hipster will be dressed as a bird or boyscout this coming Halloween. Don’t forget your coonskin hat! Check out your local vintage store or weekend flea markets.
And, you should probably get your Dad or Boyfriend some of these awesome pants so they can be just like Bill Murray.
