The Scene
J invited my mommy and me to watch our Trojans smack down Stanford at the fancy new Galen Center. Sat with her husband as well as Chowmein and her husband. Mr. Chicken Nugget and Bana were also in attendance.


Alas, Ms. Gardner was at the babysitter's and escaped my kisses...


The arena was stunning. It was our first time inside. Truly another feather in USC's cap. Fight on!

Just one problem: there's an impeccably stocked gift shop with all things Trojan. Ugh. My mom and I went nuts in there during half time. (Think I need the puffy white jacket on the mannequin. But $100 - boo!)


Will you please look at Bana's outfit and tell me how I was supposed to keep my mitts off her??? Chowmein says she also just got her a song girl outfit that will be purrfect for football season. Cannot wait!


Also really digging these his and hers Vans. Want them.


After the game, my mom wanted to walk around campus since it's been a couple of years for her. I was only too willing to oblige.


My momma just beams with pride whenever she's on campus. Loves her.

It's pretty surreal that I've now been on campus 3 times in 2 weeks. That seems like some kind of record.



In the evening, That Girl came over for a little dinner and multicade action before heading over to Mr. B's birthday soiree.

Mr. Diabolina hearts her. Hot chicks that willingly play Donkey Kong with him are few and far between.

I must admit I have an even bigger friend crush on That Girl. She emits such a great positive vibe, is so lovely and just fundamentally hysterical. Very glad she moved to L.A. and we can be part of her new chapter.

She looked hot hot hot in a black wrap dress and wedges. Love that the weather seems to have turned for good. This means hot people are going to be wearing less and less clothing. Yum.


JB aka Mr. Architect looked yummylicious too. He ran the marathon last week. So inspiring.

I really need more of him in my life. He's constantly teaching me new moves. Like how to look skinnier in photos. And how to catwalk Victoria Secret style. You know all the important things in life.




We're alot alike.

For example, after his bf Mr. B blew out the candles on his birthday cake.



Mr. Architect promptly proceeded to drop the cake on the floor.
And on the birthday boy's shoe.


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

That is SO something I would do.


All of us being great friends went into paparazzi mode capturing the epic faux paus from EVERY angle as we cackled mercilessly! It was straight out of one of Mr. B's comedy sketches. Too funny.



Yet another fantastic Saturday! I must've been very good in another life.

The Commentary
My mom and I are so funny when we dress down. We never get it quite right. Though we briefly consulted on outfits the night before, we each independently choose gray. We are so psychically linked :)

I have no idea where she got that visor. It's the closest thing to functional I have ever seen her wear. It's cute but not her at all.

I bought the subtle SC sweatshirt when I was on campus with Peach. It was a hit with Chowmein and J. Really like the fact that it's not in your face Trojan wear. Makes it alot more wearable for me. My mom got it today in cream.

This skirt I should really retire. I think there is weight limit on white skirts and I've exceeded it ;( Plus these MJ shoes really shorten my leg because of the tying situation and just make me look chunk-tified.

Sporting events like the rain scramble my brain. I really don't know what I was thinking today when I left the house. Maybe that I was 18 or that I weigh what I weighed when I was 18. Sigh!


My late night outfit was much more me. Love this top. $28 at Image. Love this wine color. Matches my YSL shoes nicely.

Ombre is still on trend for spring. Feels like it's been around for a couple of seasons already.

The drape is super comfortable and forgiving but does make me look a bit top heavy.




Mr. Diabolina claimed he couldn't take his eyes off my...top. What an unabashed perv he is.





p.s. LOOK at the spangly bracelet I paired with my party outfit. Have had it for nearly a decade. Cost like $5 in the fashion district. It's like a party on my wrist. Magic :)

Holy mutherfunkin' shit. I feel all empty and dead inside because I wasn't there for all of this fabulousness. You're a delicious pile of delightful, topped with hotness. And I heart you madly.

See you in my dreams... lover.

D,

Love your life! Looks like you have a great group of friends and endless good times. Makes me miss all my BFFs up in SF :(

It's ok - I don't need to know what gym has the strip cardio class - didn't mean to come off stalkerish! Nor am I looking to take strip classes! HA!

AND - I'm returning that JH dress at Target - I just don't see it working out for me! But thanks SO MUCH for the tips. I'm sure it won't be the last time I hit you up for advice.

Have a good week!!
