This month’s T3 is a freebie. I’m super stoked about The Hunger Games : Mockingjay – Part 1 premiering this weekend (although not so stoked about that cumbersome title ), so I’ve chosen Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.
I wore this distressed denim on denim look for two reasons. First, the color palette matches the lovely book cover (just ignore the typography, Maricel). Next, the fraying on the jeans and the shirt cuffs symbolizes Katniss’ shredded psyche (deep, huh?).
Really though, my look is about the accessories, as they are taken right from the following quotes:
My mockingjay pin now lives with Cinna’s outfit, but there’s the gold locket and the silver parachute with the spile and Peeta’s pearl. I knot the pearl into the corner of the parachute, bury it deep in the recesses of the bag, as if it’s Peeta’s life and no one can take it away as long as I guard it.
I sit back on my bed cross-legged and find myself rubbing the smooth iridescent surface of the pearl back and forth against my lips. For some reason, it’s soothing. A cool kiss from the giver himself.
So, we’ve got a gold locket, a black pearl in a silver setting, and a silver bangle bracelet decorated with a gold arrow to tie everything together.

I really like how you used accessories to tie everything together! I have an arrow bangle in my current Rocks Box and never even put together the Mockingjay connection! Silly me 🙂
Thank you! My husband gave me my bangle for my birthday a year or 2 ago, and he picked it specifically because I love THG trilogy so much. 🙂 I also really like that it’s silver and gold. I have a hard time being okay with mixing metals, so a piece that does it for me is great!
Aaaaand, she did it again, folks! Mind blown. Argh. You’re just way to good at this interpretation thing. It’s spooky! I figured it out, though. It’s because you have a great eye for detail and you can pull out quotes like nobody’s business. I bet you’re a book annotator, aren’t you? ;p ‘Tis why you’re such an amazing beta.
Haha, thanks! I do not annotate my physical books (I highlight eBooks) but I DO snap pictures of quotes I love, and I utilize the quotes feature on Goodreads. Most of my T3 outfits go through a LONG thought process before I decide on a final look.
This looks so cool! I especially like the boots. 🙂
Thanks Alison! The boots are Baretraps. They’re 2 years old and still in great shape.

Love! It looks so effortless and cute. I LOVE Mockingjay and I can’t wait for the movie!
Thanks! Oh man, I’m SO looking forward to the movie! We lined up a sitter and bought tickets the day they went on sale. No midnight show for us. We’re going to a Saturday matinée. 😛
Very cool casual look! What a fun link up!
