136. The Lucky One

This is what I wore to watch The Hunger Games and to celebrate the first half of Daniel and I's 3-year anniversary of relationshiping. I thrifted this dress a few weeks ago and washed it twice because it was smelly. It makes me look a little lumpy. Sometimes I think about "dressing for your body type" and then sometimes I just say "FUCK THAT!" because I want to wear a long semi-sheer lacey 90s dress from an Express knock-off store. 

I can only be so body-conscious for so long before going off the deep-end into hysteria, you know. 

I do love a turban. This one is from Revival Outpost on Magazine Street. I have lost it twice by accident and had it saved once by a friend and returned to me by nice strangers second.

You think you are soooooo funny don't you.... 

Yeah, okay.  

As for the movie, which was watched at 9:30 AM at the Prytania (only $5 dude!), I think Kristin Cashore summed up best my feelings about the shaky Bourne Identity-like camerawork and how it ruined the adaptation for me. Don't get me wrong; I thought it was alright, I cried a lot (thus the blurry eyemakeup), the cast did well. Doesn't hold a candle to Battle Royale IMHO still. How subtle is my Girl On Fire inspiration though?

  1. arghhh why are you so darn cute??? I love a good turban too, I need to get my mitts on one...

    1. Thank you ma'am! I actually have a couple pinned on my Wish List Pinterest board. I'm really wanting a knitted turban.

      BUT, perhaps more up your alley, my sister actually made 2 turbans from a DIY site, out of old t-shirts! She made me one but it was too small for my head. Let me see if she can send me the site and you can make yourself a super cool one!

  2. DUDE. Which day did you see the 9:30?! Garren & I went yesterdayyyyyy.

    Also, I look so stupid in turbans.

    1. Yesterday as in SUNDAY??? Because that is when we went!!!! We were those assholes who came in like 10 minutes late (when they are walking to the Reaping) and then left RIGHT when the movie ended because we were both so nauseous.

      You know, I go back and forth about how I look in turbans. I just like to wear them. Like I think they make my head look pointy and smaller compared to my body sometimes, and sometimes I think it makes my hair look awesome. You should get a home turban to wear around the house first! I like to do that.

  3. Awww congrats on your 3 year anniversary!!! You look fab too, and your hair is so long. I love it!! Xx

    1. Thanks girl! I'm actually thinking I'm going to dye the tips this summer and then cut it off before work starts in the fall... not sure if I'll miss the length though!
