We’re loving this draped ASOS number which channels the cape detail of Hailee’s; meanwhile 6pm and Nordstrom Rack have more great picks- all budgets covered!
If I see another movie that starts near the end of the story and then flashes back to the very beginning, I may have to kill myself.
Watching the final scenes through misty eyes, I found my own earlier, mock-suicidal desperation quickly evaporating.

The unrated version of the trailer features Steinfeld dropping F-bombs and an expanded version of the sexually explicit text she sends to her crush (Alexander Calvert) seen in the original trailer.
"The people who radiate confidence and naturally excel at life and the people who hope those people die in a big explosion.”Nadine might have really mixed feelings about Hailee Steinfeld, the actress portraying her in the coming-of-age drama in theaters Friday. At 19, Steinfeld has already been Oscar-nominated, has an exploding singing career, graces the cover of hip magazines like and is part of the Taylor Swift Squad, the prominent BFF clique that surrounds the pop superstar.
Fremon Craig sees her characters whole; she extends grace and understanding in every direction and deftly spins the farcical third-act complications into a series of small but significant emotional breakthroughs.
Its verbal style informed by numerous interviews that Fremon Craig conducted with teenagers nationwide, “The Edge of Seventeen” never descends into a “Juno”-esque quirkfest.Curiously enough, that’s exactly what an unhappy teenage misfit named Nadine threatens to do in the opening scenes of “The Edge of Seventeen.”Crying out for help in a genuinely tragic blue jacket, she unleashes an angst-ridden monologue about the transcendent awfulness of her life, shortly before hitting the rewind button and filling us in on how she got to this very dark (and very funny) place.Happily, by the time you’ve witnessed that chain of events firsthand, you’ll likely have been thoroughly won over by Nadine, and by the unexpectedly winning new movie in which she finds herself.Brooks, who produced the film), Fremon Craig sees her heroine’s inner life not as grist for punchlines and gross-out shenanigans but instead as something to be treated with warmth, sensitivity and nary a trace of condescension. A sharp-witted chronic misfit now in her junior year at her suburban high school, 17-year-old Nadine (Steinfeld) is thrown for a loop when her best (and only) friend, Krista (Haley Lu Richardson), begins dating her hunky, overachieving older brother, Darian (Blake Jenner, “Everybody Wants Some!! Nadine has always resented Darian for his favored-child status with their mother (Kyra Sedgwick), a feeling that has only intensified since the sudden death of their father (Eric Keenleyside) a few years earlier.Having cut Krista out of her life, Nadine begins testing new relational waters — indulging her fantasies of Nick (Alexander Calvert), the dreamboat who works at Petland, and striking up a friendship with her adorably awkward classmate Erwin (Hayden Szeto), whose feelings for her couldn’t be more on the surface.
(This charming subplot also offers a sly cultural corrective to “Sixteen Candles”; if Steinfeld is the movie’s Molly Ringwald, then Erwin is pretty much the anti-Long Duk Dong.)Naturally, Nadine finds a reliable mentor figure in her history teacher, though it's safe to say no actor has ever put quite the dyspeptic spin on this cliché that Woody Harrelson manages here.
