Knight and Day.

Since I heard about Knight and Day, I've been telling everyone who would listen (and a few people who tried not to) that it did not look promising to me. In fact, it sounded to me like it was made up for a tv show or movie character to star in (like when Joey was in Mac and C.H.E.E.S.E. on FRIENDS, or when Bella and co. went to watch Face Punch in that Twilight sequel). I'm not a big Tom Cruise fan, or Cameron Diaz fan... I don't know. I just lacked interest.

But go I did yesterday, when it turned out I had already seen all the movies I actually was interested in seeing. I still had that "wanna go see a movie" craving.

I have to say, it wasn't bad. Not much more than your standard spy flick, but definitely not awful. The most fun part was Cameron Diaz's wardrobe. For the most part, it wasn't that fancy or unique. But I distinctly remember at least three "Well, now I'll have to buy one of those" moments.

This was my favorite look, though it's atypical of the character (she was trying on a bridesmaid's dress and got a bit distracted...):

This has a lot of my favorite elements. It's colorful, it has a full, tulle-boosted skirt, and then she has this cross-body bag and motorcycle boots to give it a casual, fun vibe. It was supposed to be ridiculous, but I would wear this out!

For the most part, June (Diaz) wore fitted button-ups with a white tank underneath, skinny jeans, aviators, the crossbody bag above, and an array of awesome flat boots. It wasn't that any of this was particularly innovative, but it was casual and cool and flattering in the best way. It's hard to find a lot of photos, but to give some idea:

My favorite pieces were her big, chunky men's watch and her slouchy motorcycle boots (you can kind of see both in the yellow dress pictures I'm posting) and they were added to my running wish list. I loved her cross-body bag as well:

The thing I especially liked about the bag is that she wears the same one throughout the movie. Tons of women have one essential bag that they wear every single day (mine being my Fossil cross-body bag, as you see here) and I get bored of movies pretending otherwise. In a similar vein- try watching Leap Year. She wears a pair of Louboutins to walk for days across Ireland... dirt roads, sandy beaches, you name it. She treats this pair of 4 1/2 inch stilettos as though they're sneakers, then about halfway through complains that she can't climb a hill in them. I'm all for fantasy, but does that kind of thing drive you nuts in movies too? My feet hurt just watching it!


  1. I actually went to see Knight and Day with a desire to see it, I love the action/comedy/romance genre. (that's considered a genre in my mind.)

    So I really enjoyed it, plus bonus for anything even partially filmed in europe.

    I definitely agree with you on the cross body bag love, and the slouchy buckle boots are awesome.

    Also, you have an award at my blog!

  2. I kind of want to see this movie. Mostly because, like you, I've seene everything else, and also now partly because of this review. :P

    I could totally picture you in that yellow dress. It reminds me of that dress you wore with the petticoat underneath. You could totally pull it off. Especially with those boots!

    I hope you had a great fourth! :)

  3. I was curious if you happened to actually know the name of the exact pair of boots Cameron Diaz wore with her yellow sundress in the first and last picture you posted? I'm not one of her fans or Tom Cruz's but I've been dieing to get a hold of those boots as a gift for a friend who is her fan. If you know what the name of the boots are will you please e-mail me. Pretty pretty please
