Inspired By: Cloud Atlas

I've been wanting to read Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell for months and finally decided to buy it. I'm so excited to read it and then see the movie. I mentioned the movie in my Movies I Want To See (October) post, but if you're too lazy to click on over, the novel and movie are about six interwoven stories that begins in the past and follow the consequences of people's decisions into the present and future.
If you want to see the movie, it opens in theatres tomorrow!

Inspired By: Cloud Atlas (Past)

{Click above for item info}
The first two stories take place in 1850 and 1931 about a man who becomes shipwrecked on an island in the Pacific and a penniless musican who works for a composer in Belgium, respectively. With a slight nod to the Victorian, don a pea coat, burgandy pencil skirt and mary jane heels, or go more casual with brown pants, a print cardigan and orange flats.

Inspired By: Cloud Atlas (Present)

The next two stories take place in 1975 in California about a woman who is investigating claims about an unsafe nuclear power plant, and in the early 21st century in the UK about a 65-year-old man who must run from gangsters. Go for a more seventies vibe with a cool leather jacket, boot cut jeans and wedge boots, or stick to a 2012 look with a spiked blazer, black skinny jeans, and fun heels.

Inspired By: Cloud Atlas (Future)

In the last two stories, the future has become rather bleak: in the dystopian near future in Korea, a genetically-engineered clone is interviewed before her execution, and in the post-apocalytic future in Hawaii, a man lives a primitive life after most of humanity dies in "the Fall." Get the sci-fi future look with a peplum dress, structured heels, and a colorful hair extensions, or wear a brown dress, warm sweater, and boots for a post-apocalyptic get up.
What do you think? Are you going to see the movie?
Have you read the novel?
