Completely Gratuitous Outfit / Black with Pink Satin

What I’m Wearing
Pink Satin Kimono Top: Forever 21 {first time wearing …on sale for $10.99 …bought last fall randomly} – I think you’re supposed to tie it in the back but I liked it in the front for this outfit.
Black Pencil Skirt: Forever 21 …seen here
Black Turtleneck: Nordstrom
Black Booties: Bronx {these are so old I had to wipe the dust off of them before I put my feet into them – I think I bought these in like 2002 btw} …worn here
Crystal hoop earrings
Cheap Sunnies from the Farmer’s Market {in like 2005}

Pastels paired with black seemed to be rampant on Fall 2008 runways but I couldn’t seem to make it work then. Now, however, is a completely different story. I equate pastels with Spring and it seems to lighten up the black a bit. Who knows …all I know is that it’s cold right now and I’d rather be cuddling in bed with my husband and the doggies watching the South Park episode we missed last night as well as Scrubs and Ghost Hunters on our DVR.

How good was/is LOST though? Who’s with me?

{Oh and, I watched my DVR’d Hills episodes last night and omg I just want to know why Heidi is the ONLY one who doesn’t see what a douche Spencer is? Also, does she know she’s orange? …her sequined dress was gorge though …the one that she wore to LC’s b-day boat bash which she invited herself to – Missing The City …and Project Runway …and Nip/Tuck …it’s possible I watch too much TV}

    LOVE the pink top! So cute! I wish I worked in a dress-up office. If I wore that to work, my boss would look at me like “what planet are you from?” We’re a jeans and TOMS kind of office.

    2 Offices and 30 Rocks??? Holy crap I didn’t know that. Almost makes up for the fact that I’m about to go to the dentist. yikes.

    Lost is amazing! Just keeps getting better and better! Who is your favorite character? And seriously, why doesn’t Heidi see it? If EVERYBODY in your life doesn’t like your boyfriend, there is something wrong with him!

    Cute outfit! In the first pic you look like a Stepford Wife. hehehe. Dude – I think Heidi is so freakin’ lame! It suits her to be with a douchebag like Spencer. LAME-O

    I TOO-TOTALLY have that same top in ivory. I wore it to go wedding dress shopping to get me in the mood. They had dress versions of the same top, and at the time I bought it I thought “What adorable and chic bridesmaid dresses these would made!” Thanks for your comment, btw!

    Oooh, the Hills. I also LOVED Lauren’s red lips…I want to know what color that is.

  • Chessa!

    April 9, 2009 |

    I don’t watch the Hills. I think Speidi are morons. Yes, she is orange and yes she is the only ass who doesn’t see what a giant douche Spencer is. it is so, so sad. as for Lost, we wait until it comes out on dvd and then hibernate and watch them back to back. I’m dying to know what happens though. I also miss the City and Project runway. So pathetic that they can’t get it together and start another season. it’s supposed to be on Lifetime and now they’re just whoring out those Nora whats-her-name series. too much TV? nah!

    I’ve always shied away from pastels, but I love it with the all black. I am definitely going to rethink my ban on pastels.

    i havent watched the hills yet – but im kind of dreading it because of spencer. hes an idiot. and that makes heidi even more of an idiot for not seeing that hes an idiot. i cant believe how much shes made herself into a plastic skipper doll

  • I Like Stuff

    April 10, 2009 |

    Haha, Heidi and Spencer are perfect for each other! They’re both huge douches with an addiction to hair bleach and each other. And yes, the Hills is like, the best show ever in the history of the entire universe. Either you’re in on the joke or you aren’t.

    and ditto about heidi. and also why hasn’t anyone told her her hair and face look like a horse. an orange bleached horse.

    The pink kimono is gorgeous! Great paring.

    Hiedi is a ditz. And Spencer simply makes me vomit in mouth a little. TMI? Ha! They make me so annoyed, yet I keep watching?

    Dude, very Asian inspired. I dig. (Also, because I’m Asian, and so it makes me tickled inside.)

    i like this type of kimono top better than the real thing, though the real ones are gorgeous, just hard to put together.

    and does spencer’s face look exceptionally bloated?? icky.

    love how you paired the functional turtleneck with the darling kimono top!

    This outfit looks really good on you!I love the black polo neck,it’s a piece of clothing I just have strong feelings for.And with the pastel komono top over it = beautiful!

    Regarding Spencer ~ I think he is definitely just playing a character,because no woman,no matter how dumb or vapid she is,could survive living with a douche like that if he was for real.
