Despite the fact that I didn't do too much of anything that was Halloween-related, I still had a great Halloween week and weekend. I was mostly just excited to go to Disneyland the day before Halloween, especially since it had been a while since I had visited during this season. As I've mentioned before, my best friend, Whitney works at Disneyland, and her friend, Jessie, visited from Kansas last week. Jessie had never been to Disneyland before, so Whit got both of us in so I could tag along for her first visit. I will never outgrow that place or get tired of it, so any time I get to visit my second home is appreciated. It was the perfect day to go as it wasn't too crowded or too hot, and we were able to catch the Halloween decorations before they left. The lovely company didn't hurt either.
This is what I wore to see the movie "Birdman" last week with a bunch of my friends. I borrowed this dress from Erica, and like most Flock Together pieces, I don't want to give it back. This print is so unique, and it's incredibly light and airy. It paired almost too perfectly with my new leather jacket that I picked up at Buffalo Exchange. It's from Forever 21 originally, but it was only $14 (bought with store credit) and had the tags still on. I have a feeling you'll be seeing this beauty a lot. As for "Birdman," it was one of the best movies I've seen this year by far. The film was more imaginative and captivating than I ever could have imagined, and Michael Keaton and Edward Norton turned in career-changing performances. It's getting Oscar buzz, so I highly recommend checking it out once it's in wide release.
The weekend itself was a little more subdued, but in a good way. I had a mellow Halloween night watching old "Mr. Show" episodes with my friends Adam and Jon, and I spent a good amount of time with family when I wasn't working.
Side note: If you aren't big into the sketch comedy scene and don't know what "Mr. Show" is, it's worth your while to look up some sketches on YouTube. The HBO show stars David Cross ("Arrested Development") and Bob Odenkirk ("Breaking Bad"), and a bunch of other comedians made appearances before they were famous. It's one of the few shows that HBO never put on HBO Go, but it's legendary in the comedy world. I had only seen a bunch of random sketches, but I'm so excited to finally be watching through the whole series. It's absolutely brilliant.
