Oh baby, the Sundance Film Festival is upon us, and by us, I'm talking about the residents of Park City. It's not all and all a bad thing, but I have to tell you... it's draining.

 It sucks that all of my favorite dive bars are  transformed into posh, invite only, Hollywood bars-and believe me, I have spent enough time in bars that are, actually, in Hollywood to know how horrible they are.

There are way too many people in town that think they are important, that I couldn't give a shit about, but they insist I treat them like they are important - guess what? you're not.

On the flip side, there are way too many people asking about which famous people I've seen, hey I've seen a bunch but I'm not going to recant it for you, and I don't give shit anyways.

I have to walk to work, granted, I live about 3/4 of a mile from my work and usually walk, but navigating the streets is an absolute nightmare!

If I actually wanted to see a film, I couldn't get time off work = lame.

The vacation rental above my apartment is bound to inhabited by horrible, noisy party tourists that will keep me up at all hours of the day.

Perks:

One of my best friends from California is coming out here early next week, and I couldn't be happier to see him.

I get to laugh at silly girls falling on the sidewalks all over the city - trying to wear skirts and 5" inch heels in the snow on very large hill is a bad idea.

I hate not being able to take part in festivals while having other people terrorize your locality. :(
But for every Paris Hilton, there's an Elizabeth Olsen (or even better, Parker Posey)!

The skirt and the collar necklace make such a perfect pair! You look like a starlet in the making. x

So what all famous people have you seen? Just kidding. ;-)

I love this skirt! I'm sorry for all the crappy things about the festival being in town, but if it makes a difference, I think you will be the best dressed in all the land!

Amazing skirt. I've always wanted to go to sundance but I bet it's different/annoying when you live there. I feel the same way with LA often!! Enjoy the time with your friend in town!

I'm not crazy about seeing or meeting famous people. I don't understand that whole thing of thinking they are different from the rest of us, when they're just people too. Anyway, You look amazing in this outfit and I adore it!!!!

Ahhh yes! Sundance! I lived up in Park City for quite a few years and I always dreaded Sundance. It was tricky to drive into work from the Junction to Main Street...and parking! Wow! I have been viewing your blog for some time now. I love your style mixed with locations from Park City. Thank you for sharing!
