Jenny in Wonderland

Okay, I'm not really in Wonderland. More like Wonderhell these days.

But despite being fabulously unemployed and being tremendously confused and depressed about every aspect of my life, I am still managing to squeeze in a little fun.

Kerrie and I finally saw Alice in Wonderland this week.



We saw it in 3D. It was such a beautiful, cute, and quirky film. I enjoyed every minute of it. It was definitely a delightful twist to the book.

After the movie Kerrie and I met Rian for sushi.









The food was good but the service was terrible. The restaurant, despite being busy all the time, is notorious for its bad service. But it is still considered one of the most decent sushi places in the area, so...haha.

It was nice to have a day of fun and relaxation after all the stress I have been facing.

Oh, and in case you were curious, here is what I wore:

sushi dress
dress, Urban Outfitters; jacket, Express; shoes, Gap; bag, Louis Vuitton


I hope you are all having a wonderful week! xoxo

Hello, gorgeous girl! Looks like a well-deserved treat. I hate bad service but if the food was good you can let that go sometimes.
Hope that life improves for you soon.

Jennifer you look gorgeous!!! I love your outfit and um....you are really making me crave sushi! haha in Rome it is not so easy to find, although the Italian food is enough to satisfy. :) I really want to see that movie too! Looks like you had a good time, although I know things are still tough for you. Hang in there....we all adore you. :)

Looking cute! Ugh and the NYer in me is such a stickler for service! I miss sushi, I'll try it again in Singapore (slight allergy now :( )

Sherin said...

Glad you got to watch the movie! I still can't believe I haven't seen it yet.

I also love your dress. It's so cute.

(P.S. Spend more time with Kerrie. By the sound of your posts, you 2 have a lot of fun when together. Hanging with her will definitely make you feel better!)

Tights Lover said...

Great photos, you look gorgeous! That sushi looks really good too. You've reminded me, it's been a long time since I've had sushi!

I'm glad you're finding time to have fun. I hope you start feeling better soon. I know things have been difficult, but it'll get better!

Mina said...

I am glad you had a relaxing day after all the stress you have been through. I like that, "wonderhell".

Tamara Nicole said...

Mmmm i love sushi:-)

And I'll have to watch that movie, been meaning too but need to find the time lol.

Cute outfit girly!

Damsels said...

ive actaully heard that it wasnt too great. . but im glad you are trying to enjoy yourself ... i try to do the same when i dont feel so good .

Barry said...

I remember this dress from a previous post and I looooove it on you! You're def F-A-B-ulous!

I can't tell you how good it makes me feel to see you and Kerrie hanging out together. Huge smile from me!

This post reminds me of a Japanese restaurant Sandy and I went to. She's gonna shake her head in disdain at this story but I think it was pretty funny! Our server was a gorgeous Japanese girl (Asian women have a tremendous natural beauty to me).

Anyway, until Sandy mentioned it after the meal, I hadn't picked up on the fact that the entire time this girl was paying attention to me only. We think it's probably due to a very traditional upbringing, as she barely spoke a word of English.

I laugh every time I think of it!

Liya said...

hm friends keep telling me to go see this movie...perhaps i should!!!

sorry you're so upset girl :(

It has been decreed.

ALICE IN 3D? what in the hell have i been missing. allow me to riff a little, but i just saw remember me and was like pretty much the most amazing movie i've seen in a while

trust me, unemployed may suck but it forces you to take risks, you'll find, with doing things you actually care about..might be the best thing thats ever happened to you. but i know right now these just sound like colorful words

happy i found your blog!
