Gray Days

Continuing my series of old outfits, these two outfits are really weather appropriate in the sense that all the gray matches the sky outside.  It still hasn’t stopped raining here.

cardigan, grey dress, braided belt, tights- forever 21, sweater dress- rave, boots- thom brown, flats- target

Also, I bought a new nail polish from Forever 21.  I don’t know about the quality yet because this is my first time using one of their polishes, but I love the color.  It is a deep green, like a forest green.

Yesterday, I got a chance to see Black Swan and I loved it!  I know I’ve seen a good movie when the movie ends and they turn the lights back on and I’m a bit dazed because I was so engrossed in the movie and it takes me a second to remember where I am.  From the costumes to the music to the plot, I thought it was well worth the $5 bucks I paid.  I say, go see it if you haven’t already!

Tonight I’m going to a mini-reunion with some of my friends from high school.  I’m still close with my good friend who organized the get-together, but I haven’t seen or spoken to most of the other guys since we graduated, which was more than 3 years ago!  I’m just hoping it won’t be too awkward…

    Love your nail color! I just bought a similar shade from Essie and it's on my nails right now. Please let us know how the quality is…you never know with Forever 21. :|

    I've been hearing all good things about Black Swan. I'm excited to see it, but I don't know who I can drag along to come see it with me! I doubt my boyfriend would be interested in it, ha.

    Happy Holidays! Hope your get together went well…I've found things like that tend to be awkward at first, but then it picks up and it's like you never had been apart. Weird!

    Don't you just love thrifting it? I went to Goodwill yesterday and bought 10 things for $30! Uh. Maze. Ing. :)
