Date(night) with 007 | Thriftanista in the City


Date(night) with 007

Headed out to see a Red Carpet screening of Skyfall courtesy of Cadillac ATS and Klout Perks. I love a good freebie and this one was pretty darn good. E is a big 007 fan and put this on his list of movies to see. He probably would have been going my himself as we don't get out much together. As luck would have it, Violet's favorite uncle agreed to babysit. That's right! We got out again. Together. At night. Without V. *raises the roof knowing it's not cool but does it anyway*.


 Skyfall is a long movie as are a lot Bond movies. Weird fact about me -- Bond movies put me to sleep. I've watched all or most of them over the years. I love the older ones...the bright colors...the exotic locations...Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan. Without fail, I never make it through the entire movie. I yawned and had a couple of loooonnnng blinks but managed to stay awake! 

I found Skyfall to be less dark than the previous 2 Bond movies with Daniel Craig. The humor reminded of the old ones. Ben Whishaw was great as the new "Q". I saw him in Perfume -- a movie I saw twice and didn't fall asleep at all. That's my kind of movie (and book).

I had to leave about 15 early to move the car in order to take advantage of the 4 hour validated parking. Since I had 5 minutes to spare, I obviously had to take a shot of me in the pretty lit up walkway. My camera is propped on a garbage can. Classy!

 I'm still not good with the new 5 months old camera. When I have to adjust the knobs the pics don't come out right. I need to spend more time with the manual or only shoot during the day in sunlight (not likely). Had E snap one last photo before we went inside. Not bad.

Nervous smile as my upstairs neighbor makes way down the stairs. Don't mind me taking pictures of myself. Not. weird. at. all.

Will you be checking out Skyfall this weekend? Are you a 007 fan?

That chevron coat is gorge!! I tried to go see Skyfall this weekend with the hubs, but everything was sold out! Hoping to buy tickets in advance for next weekend.

Visiting you from Monday Mingle!

THAT COAT!!! I love it. I need a new one and I have yet to find one in my excursions. It will get really cold this week I think I may have to break down and pay retail for one.

Glad you guys got out for date night. We desperately need one and will be headed out on Friday night. I don't like 007 movies for the very reason you mentioned...they put me to sleep!

Splendor said...

That red blouse really brings the whole outfit out nicely.

Isn't it so embarrassing when someone 'walks in' on your photoshoot. HA! And the crazy part is, no one EVER shows up until the minute you pull your camera out. Oh the irony!
