20.1.11

so killer


Well hello there. 

Ok, well, I think thats all I got for now.  I think.  PMS Today. I know right? Why am I sharing that information?  Well, the thing is, I generally cry one day a month weather I feel like it or not and this month was particularly amusing. You see, my sister gave us the first two seasons of Dexter on DVD for Christmas (we watch TV shows on DVD since we don't get TV stations and I refuse to watch it online on my computer since my connection is too slow) and we blew through those seasons like white lightning (staying up till 2:00am on a freaking school night!) then proceeded to buy the third and fourth and we just finished the fourth two nights ago and I have been so sad ever since. How ridiculous right??!! The season finale of season four just shook me right up. I am in mourning over a pretend Dexter Character. If you have not seen it yet or have not made the commitment to watch Dexter YET, I am sure I didn't just ruin anything for you (and I feel a little weird because I NEVER talk about TV shows here, but holy freaking man jeeze. One makes exceptions in times like this.)  So back to the crying, I was in a sort of off mood due to the hormones and my husband as he was leaving was like "Oh, do you think you might still be upset about 'The character in Dexter'?" and I freaking lost it!  Bawling.  Hilarious and silly and crazy. yes. that is me. at least once a month. Oh well. But dude, seriously, you should watch Dexter man. 

Shirt, hat, Shoes, braceltets: Thirfted

That belt is wonderful. Such a beautiful colour! Also I firmly believe that everyone needs to get the tears out and sometimes any silly excuse will do ♥

Rose said...

But it WAS SO SAD. Cry away!

Anyway, better to get the pms weepies than the inexplicable rage, right? ;)

Emily (tomorrow never knows) said...

Oh that belt! it must be so damn versatile! Christina, i am so excited for February :)
And it's nice to see your face on here again!

[ill eventually have to check out dexter]

casual ambiguity said...

that belt really is something! i started watching dexter when it was first out, but didn't get hooked, but i keep hearing people raving about it so maybe i should try again.

also, i have no idea if this is how it was, but it totally struck me that hubby totally new what would happen in asking that question! ha.

Desiree said...

I am SO glad that I am not the only person that feels this way after certain shows. My mum tells me it is because I get very emotionally invested in whatever I'm involved in - whether it be blogging, school, friendships, or, apparently, tv shows. How intuitive of your husband to know what might be bothering you.

Anyway, I love these jeans on you. And, Dexter IS an awesome show.

Kayla said...

You may be in a crying mood but you look gorgeous. I mourn Dexter too. I love it.

One of my favourite shows ever. And yes, that ending was very sad.

Ashley said...

YOur not alone! I totally bawled my eyes out at the end of that season too!!!

SO as usual you look gorgeous! Love the print on your shirt, the bangles are a great touch and that belt is AMAZING!

I'm just finishing my double G&T and couldn't stop giggling after reading this post. I don't have TV, don't care to watch any shows, ever......but you cracked me up. So thanks. And nice belt. Kisses from Philly.

Ashlovely said...

Just got done with season 2...I'm dying to find out what happens next!! How can you not have feelings for Dexter!! I have to figure out how to get my hands on seasons 3 and 4 now!

MerciBlahBlah said...

Dexter is the Best. Show. EVER. I HATE that the current season is over. Sigh. At least Californication is back on, so there's that.

What else? That belt. Gimme.

Merci!

PMS hasn't affected your styling...this outfit is great and I love the top and belt so much...no crying here!

The Bohemienne said...

DH and I do the same thing: wait til most shows come out on dvd before we watch them. I just finished season 3 of Mad Men and can't wait for season 4 to come out in a couple of months!

And might I say, you look FANTASTIC in hats. I don't know if I've ever seen anyone pull them off as well as you do.

AMW said...

oh man, I KNOW
it took me at least a week (and a lot of thoughtful conversation with the guy) to get over what happened...and maybe Im still not over it...ive been stalling on the next season

anyway. that shirt is amazzzzing (the print and the crisp silhouette created by the belt. illustration inspiration once again!

Terri said...

it's been so long since I've watched a tv series, I can't imagine...would an entire sack of cookies help? That used to do the trick for me.

Louise said...

I know how you feel--- I felt the same when Charlie on LOST died. You look amazing! That belt just makes the outfit.

meelusha said...

fabulous belt!

allison said...

oh my gosh....the season 4 finale was SOO sad. i had trouble getting on with things after i watched it.


also - fabulous belt forsure!

Melody said...

Isn't it funny how attached we can get to fictional characters? I've never gotten over Christopher having Adrianna killed in the Sopranos. I had crazy dreams for a week after watching that episode.

I recommend Weeds on DVD, by the way.

Kim Humes said...

I LOVE Dexter and have watched every eps, so I know of what you speak from the Season 4 finale. i was completely gobsmacked! Season 5 was definitely different following what happened, a different side to the character. I just got season 3 and re-watched the whole thing and hope to buy season 4 soon too! SUCH a good show!

Meghan said...

I've been suffering from the same addiction! Started watching Dexter last week and now I'm halfway through season 3! No spoilers please :)

Kimberellie said...

Gosh you are adorable. And your outfit is adorable. And as for Dexter, now I am so curious and I am going to have to look it up. We stopped watching after season 2 I think. I liked it, but the gore factor was too much for me (I just can't stomach it). But yes, it is a very good show.

Perhaps not worth crying over...but fricken' cute that you did!!!

Kimberellie said...

ps. I just read the synopsis, and I gotta say, I am really glad I don't watch Dexter anymore. I would be crying too! That is just TOO sad!!!

Miss Peregrin said...

I lurk around your blog to look at your fabulous outfits, but just had to de-lurk to say I share your Season 4 of Dexter pain! I finished watching it a few weeks ago, bawled my eyes out, had a massive rant to my boyfriend about why that was a crappy ending for a season, and then bawled some more. I still get sad when I think about it.

dimi said...

Hi there! I have a huge blog-crash on you and I had to tell!! I'm new in the blogosphere and it's all so frustrating (PMS? - try PMDD!) but I never forget to check your blog every single day! You are fabulous my dear! I wish you were my friend and we could talk about life and have you over for coffee and greek treats!! Kisses from a new blogger from a far corner of the earth (isn't this amazing btw?)Your outfit is unique and nostalgic - Have a lovely day!

dimi said...

And I'm crying over "Six feet under" right now - but Dexter is next for sure!

I am embarrassed that I get all weepy over characters in cartoons. I cry like a baby over obvious fictional character (iron giant?) Needless to say UP made me a melted mess.

Glad to see you back to blogging.

haha, you are not the only one! everyone I know who watches dexter is obsessed, me included and I also was very very disturbed by that ending! And props on the outfit

Meg said...

I found the death so upsetting that I almost stopped watching Dexter altogether after the fifth season. I totally whimpered and cried and curled up in my husband's arms. If I had watched it at that special time of month, whooo boy, it would NOT have been pretty. I'm pretty sure it gave me nightmares.

Also, that belt is cute, but I LOVE your shoes most of all. I wish I could find nice shoes like that when I'm thrifting...

Maya Francesca said...

This is kind of hilarious because my boyfriend and I just finished going through Dexter withdrawal. It was painful! We obsessively watched the first 2 seasons on Netflix because it was available on Instant Play. By "obsessively," I mean that we finished both seasons in like 4 days. We were going to order seasons 3 and 4, but I had to, uh, concentrate on being in grad school. Thus, withdrawal. The show really is addictive.

Esti said...

Hey! Guess what, the top you wore is definitely from my country, Indonesia, and it's called batik. This kind of cloth is (usually) hand painted with wax in a special technique. There are perhaps thousand of traditional patterns that can be painted on the cloth, representing different areas of origin of the batik. The name of the pattern on your top is "parang barong", and it's originally from my hometown, Solo. Yay!

And you totally nailed it! You made batik looks totally modern and treeeesss chic! Love, love it!

Second Skin said...

Esti! I am not sure if you will get this reply but I just wanted to thank you for telling me about this print! It is so incredible that it is from your home town! I love the pattern so much and feel so very lucky that this whole situation happened! Thank you!

Christina
