50 Shades update

This blog started almost 18 months ago and its sole purpose was for my sister and I to be mindful of what we are wearing, and to try and NOT wear grey for 50 days.  We have since moved past those 50 days and now write about lots of things.  The fact that our blog’s name name is similar to the popular 50 Shades of Grey trilogy is not unintentional.

The actual movie of 50 Shades has been filming over the past months and I see that just this week the production company has released a trailer.

For those that want a quick preview, here you go:

 

Although, I read the books, I got pretty bored half way through the second one.  The story has a theme and it sticks pretty close to it throughout all three of the books.  That said, it didn’t stop me from continuing on with the series.  Will I see the movie?  Probably?  Will I be there on opening night?  Not a chance.

But, I have to thank 50 Shades for helping us start 50 Days of No Grey.  And now back to our regular programming…

Divergent

Ok, I’m a little late to the party.  Which party?  The Divergent party, of course.  My sister and co-wearer in grey, gave me the the first book of the series at Christmas time and last night, I finally saw the movie.  Although the reviews weren’t great, I really enjoyed the movie.  So much so, that I started the second book as soon as I got home.

If you don’t know much about Divergent and its series, I’ll tell you a little. There are 5 factions living within a city.  Each faction is known for having a specific value and place within the community.  For example, Dauntless are the protectors and they wear black.

I did a little search on Pinterest and found some examples of the factions and their clothes.

Based on my current wardrobe, I would be Abnegation.  They wear…you guessed it – GREY!

The style of Candor (known for saying what is on their mind and for not liking grey) is also a favourite of mine:

Don’t you think everyone should have a little Amity in their life ?

My moto jacket falls under Dauntless:

and my love of the colour blue is Erudite:

Dictionary.com shows the meaning of the word Divergent as:

adjective: diverging, differing, deviating

Overall, I think my wardrobe and I are a little Divergent…which isn’t such a bad thing to have in your life.
