The Scene
After work, hit trivia pub night again with Danny B and Daisy Duke's. Focus on inhaling less Guinness this time and answering more questions.

By the end of the first round, we are in second place. INCONCEIVABLE! Danny B is ecstatic. Makes me happy to see his nerd ass so happy. However, I must admit, the questions overall are much easier tonight than last week.

The second round is quite a bit tougher and we fall to 4th place by the end of the night. Still super respectable in room full of 10 teams populated by a healthy smattering of Jeopardy champs.

Counting down til the holiday...

The Outfit
Forever 21 tank top and knit sweater
Blue Cult jeans

The Accessories
Fashion District bangle
Louis Vuitton earrings
Miu Miu sandals
Marc Jacobs bag
Forever 21 sunglasses

The Grade

e Commentary
Wanted to feel comfortable today. And trivia pub night appropriate. Felt a bit overdressed last week in a DVF frou frou skirt when everyone else looked more Star Trek convention than pre-Fall collection.

So today I started with the jeans. Then I grabbed for this Missoni-inspired wrap sweater from Forever 21. Got it for $24 a few years ago. Bought it too large (what is my problem with sizing??) so have to slip a little thin tank top inside to make it appropriate to wear outside :)

Felt like Margarita Missoni all day. Love the rich amber colors of the sweater. They play so well off a tan. Tres summery.

Each accessory was a PURRFECT compliment to the swirl of colors in the sweater. I adore adore adore these Miu Mius. Need more more of them.

And are you loving the new bangle? One part Hermes, another part Van Cleef and Arples. Just $6.

Here are two pre-Fall Missoni looks. Styled to look so very Margarita. Digging the belt and the shoes too. Yum.

Hope Forever 21 gets crackalackin on whipping up some nice facsimiles. Can't really go spending thousands on knitwear that I'll invariably snag.

I love reading your blog. I don't know how I found it, but it makes me keep going back to Forever 21 even though I feel so wrong when they check my ID and see I haven't been 21 for quite a while...

Sorry you have been having an off week. You would never know it from reading your fun words and seeing your fab ensembles. Keep it up!

I resent the implication that Star Trek convention can't be pre-fall collection. Some of the asymetrical lines and cuts (not to mention the colors) at the Fall Versace men's collection were very Star Trek. I recall a shirt from Versus that I sported in college (oh, so true, and so tragic) that made me look very Wesley Crusher. And most of Raf Simon's stuff is too futuristic NOT to be on the Holodeck. Those rubber jackets at Prada for winter? VERY fashion Ten-Foward.

Please be more gentle with the Star Trek fans. We're so misunderstood.


PS. I just saw an add this weekend for some show on TLC called (...wait for it...) THE SINGING OFFICE. Naturally, I thought of you. It premiered last week. The website says: "Each week, hosts Joey Fatone and Mel B. surprise an office, hold an impromtu audition--in front of their coworkers--to create a team of the five best singers... No office is safe this summer!"

Um. How true. Isn't that what happened to you? Are you sure it wasn't being taped for TV??!
