Dark Shadows

Top & Pants: Thrift   Shoes: Gifted  

       I wore this outfit to go see Dark Shadows with my mom. My mom's birthday was Tuesday and she loved the Dark Shadows soap opera as a kid so we saw it as part of her birthday weekend. Unfortunately the movie was bad, I mean really bad. Not even so bad it's good, just bad. If you really want to see it I suggest you rent it on DVD. It had some much potential, Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, Helena Bonham Carter, vampires and campy 60's/70's soap opera, sadly none of that made anywhere near a good movie. It was kind of disappointing. I did though finally see The Hunger Games movie the night before, which was actually pretty good, so I wasn't too bummed. Since i've been trying to read more I've got in the habit of reading books that have recently been turned into movies. I recently finished the whole Girl with the Dragon tattoo series and the first Hunger Games book. I would be reading the second book but apparently it's a pretty popular book and there's quite a wait for the book at the library.

As you can see I'm currently #971 out of 1162 waiting to get their hands on the second book.

 I might cave and buy the books but I think I can wait it out.  I did though get to go to a thrift store near the theater for a minute. It's one of my favorite thrift stores and it had some good stuff but I wasn't able to really dig in because we had to go to the movie soon. I'll definitely have to go back. Have you seen any movies lately?

    We saw the Five Year Engagement last weekend, pretty predictable, but cute.
