The Scene
Chowmein and I have been friends for more than eleven years. Through graduate school and marriage and jobs and the birth of her children and the start of our 30s, our friendship has endured and continues to evolve. Heart her.

Sadly, ChowChow has been super stressed of late. So tonight I lined up a night of pure unadulterated fun. First stop, an all-girls karaoke par-tay courtesy of WeeMo. Last stop, a Hallowed Wiener costume soiree hosted by Silver Haired Fox and Mr. Architect.

Tonight the goal was to act like the carefree teenagers we were when we first met. So when we were discussing costumes, I had a brizilliant idea. We'd dress up like carefree teenagers - Cher and Dee from Clueless to be exact!!

You see, Clueless was one of the first things we bonded over at USC. Both being So Cal girls, we adored that movie a little too much. Quoted it like Rainmen. And yes, that's a huge Clueless poster over my bed sophomore year. And a Jean Bean napping on my bed.

But when we hit the karaoke party tonight, I'm pretty sure the record scratched. Except for WeeMo, we didn't know any of the 15 or so women in the room. And we were dressed like total clowns. Ugh. Inside joke costumes are not the best idea when most people aren't in on the joke. F.

After a few cocktails and belting out some Bon Jovi, I got over the costume awkwardness. It helped that WeeMo had no qualms about getting up and distracting from our costumes with her OOC dance moves ;)

Nothing like a girl getting her hip hop on in Tory Burch flats!!

Finally got to meet Amber from Confessions of the Pink Obsessed for the first time. Lovely lady. I'm a slave for her Britney moves!

Before the clock struck midnight, my prince Howard Stern picked us up and transported us to our final destination.

The annual halloween ball of one damn hilarious couple. I can safely say tonight the boyz outdid themselves. They dressed up as Mormon wives!!! I worship the ground they walk on.

Can't believe the night turned into Clueless meets Big Love. HILARIOUS!

All night I cackled whenever I caught a glimpse of a Mormon wife canoodling with Howard Stern.

Or with the Dread Pirate Roberts aka Sable Crow.

But my favorite thing was a Mormon wife smoking.

Fun fun fun night. Love love love Halloween.

The Commentary

Chowmein and I had originally planned on these school girl looks from Clueless. But neither of us could locate plaid on the cheap today. F.

However, she did end up rocking the knee highs. They were KILLING me all night.

Almost as much as the Mormon wives and their horrifically accurate shoe/socks combos.

I must confess that it was driving me CRAZY all night that people were clueless about our costumes. At one point, when we were flanking Mr. D, people assumed Chowmein was Robin Quivers and I was Beth O.

AS IF we'd ever coordinate our costumes around a guy. F.

Thankfully, Mr. Architect is a huge Clueless fan and put on the movie to help the rest of the party get a clue.

And finally everyone understood why I was twisting my lips up in every picture. REMEMBER HOW ODD ALICIA SILVERSTONE'S MOUTH IS ON SCREEN??

I am dead and buried at the Mormon wives! And Silverstone *TOTALLY* had weirdo lips!

"Sometimes you have to show a little skin. This reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex."

Those are words to live by.

Clueless will always have a special place in my heart.

Looks like a fantastic night.

Michelle said...

OMG! I love Clueless! It's a classic!

"You been jeepin' behind my back?"

Jean Bean said...

This is an Alaia. That's like a totally important designer.

WendyB said...

Fair hair and crooked mouth...are you sure you're not Drew Barrymore?

Tracee said...

LOVED your Alaia reference! Hilarious.

Sable Crow said...

My plastic surgeon has told me to avoid anything where balls fly at my face.

"masquerading as an Alaia"

An a-what-a?

Best costumes ever.

amy said...

i don't know what they go out to, but i'm sending big whatevs (visualize "w" with the hands) in honor of your clueless flashback.

JillFantastic said...

A Mormon wife costume is seriously the best costume idea I have ever heard of. Genius.

You look adorable as Cher. I was in an elevator with Alicia Silverstone last week. She looked flawless. Not a Monet at all. :)

Now I'm even more sad I missed Karaoke Fest! I loved Clueless; I totally would have "gotten it".
