The Time Traveler

Every time I hang out with my BF, he always jokes, "So which year in your time machine are you stepping out of today?" lol So it's only fitting that we went to the Graumanns's Chinese Theatre and saw "Safety Not Guaranteed." The movie was a hit at Sundance and revolves around the theme of time travel and the following newspaper ad:

"WANTED: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED. I have only done this once before."

It made me laugh, cry and really consider the concept of time travel. Crazy how we close our minds and see so many things as impossible.

For the night out, I wore a vintage 70s dress that I found as part of my flea market finds. I think it was like $10. I added a messy side braid, some green pumps and an orange clutch.

If you could go back or forward in time, what year would you go to?? Why??

Stay tuned,
