032: black & black

I've been friends with my girl Sarah for 20 years now. She's been in & out of town for med school & is luckily in town for a few months again, so we've been seeing each other every few weeks :) She asked me if I wanted to see a random midday movie, so I was super excited. Usually I try to see all of the movies nominated for academy awards & this year, up until a couple of days ago, I had seen NONE. haha.

So we decided to go watch the Black Swan & it was so good. The actors were all amazing & I can't even imagine the disciplined training it took to pull off those dance scenes. Natalie Portman really does deserve all those awards & Mila Kunis just kills it too. I keep thinking about the movie, so I guess it left quite an impression on me.

So I wore my outfit again that I had worn on Saturday. All black (for black swan!) & some grey to keep it ~lively~. bahaha.


buttoned ALL the way up + cropped sweater! yay!
plus winter shorts.






I also just watched Toy Story 3 & I laughed & then CRIED.
Surprising that I have only JUST watched it now since Sam saw it waaaay back in June! So that's two down & I still have quite a list to work through...
-The Black Swan
-Toy Story 3
-Inception
-The Fighter
-The King's Speech
-The Social Network
-True Grit
-127 Hours
-The Kids are Alright
-Winter's Bone

Do you get excited about the Academy Awards? I just take it as a fantastic excuse to see a bunch of movies I might not have particularly chosen to watch myself! I'm super excited to see Anne Hathaway & James Franco host though. :)

  1. love the outfit. i want ~winter shorts! but i've decided to stop entirely shopping for anything winter (though, p/leather shorts can be worn ANYTIME) stuff, and focusing on spring/summer because I AM SO STOKED. i also like your hurrcut :)

    dude, inception was the fab. same with TSH and i just watched the king's speech today and it was pretty great! i cried proud tears ahah.

    academy awards are more exciting to me now that i'm more of a movie fanatic than i was before. and i absolutely LOVE anne hathaway + james franco and they seem so hilarious from the promos i can't wait for feb 27th! (did you see the vanity fair cover, for the hollywood issue? omg beautiful people all compiled into one!!)

  2. I cannot stop watching the Wardrobe Malfunction GIF. It's just so hilarious! As usual, you look great. I really don't think I "got" Black Swan, because as much as I thought everything in it was amazing, I came out a little disappointed.

  4. Oh man, I'm so excited to see James Franco and Anne Hathaway host the Oscars! I don't usually watch them, but I'm really hoping for a Hugh Jackman-style opening number (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Terhj8mjPwY).

    As far as seeing the movies, I saw True Grit last weekend, and it was AMAZING. Please go see that one next. (also, I totally BAWLED when I saw TS3 over the summer, confusing my younger cousins and prompting my aunt to make fun of me the rest of the month. haha).

    (OK, I fully just watched that youtube clip again, and will now be singing that song for the rest of the day. I'm Wolverine!)
