Lookbook: Comedy Shows, Winos & Pumped Up Kicks

11/19/2012

What a full weekend. The hubs and I went to see Skyfall, and we liked it. Although, I'm pretty sure I liked it more than he did, even though I did think it dragged a bit. Javier Bardem makes for an ideal villain.

I also did some shopping and bought this entire outfit. My goal when I went shopping was to buy some colored or patterned trousers like I mentioned in my On My Mind post; but instead, I ended up with everything but trousers. And I didn't get anything from their Hello Kitty collection, if you're wondering. But don't you just hate when you see something you like on one of those mannequins but you can't find it anywhere in the store?♥ Bead show necklace ♥ F21 abstract print top ♥ F21 olive denim pants ♥ Vera Wang sneaker wedges ♥ Mesh chain link bracelet c/o InPink giveaway ♥
These sneaker wedges made all the walking I did on Saturday much easier. Glad I chose to wear them instead of heels, especially since it would rain on and off. They're a good alternative to boots.

The rest of the weekend was spent at this ski and board festival called Snowbomb where they were giving out free lift tickets and hotel stays at Tahoe. Oh, yea...and free wine tastings at the actual event. You might have seen my Instagram pic sipping on some awesome pink Sangria.

Then a bunch of us had some dinner and went to a free comedy show. Comedy shows make me a bit uneasy because I tend to feel really uncomfortable when comedians bomb. But there were some pretty funny comics there too, so it wasn't that bad.

How did you spend your weekend and what do you think of this look?

  1. You look great, I like the fabric of the trousers, it's so pretty :) Glad you enjoyed the movie, I need to see it sometime. I hate that as well when I like something on the mannequin and then can't find it in the store, which happens a lot to me. Once, I asked the ladies in the shop where the stuff was and they told me it was all sold out, haha. I said 'why do you still have it on display then?' They didn't really give me an answer, crazy! But, it is annoying! Hope you have a great Monday :)

  2. I do hate that - not finding what the mannequin is wearing. Why are you advertising it if its not available! Those shoes look super comfy. Also love the trousers, lately I have been obsessed (after blazers) with good fitting pants and they looks like they fit you really well.

  3. Live comedy always makes me feel a little awkward as well...and I love the abstract top that you got, the print and contrast sleeves are so pretty.

  12. Very rock and roll. You pull-off the heeled sneaks nicely! I hate when I have an idea of what I want to buy and don't get it, or like you said, see something on the mannequin and not find it. Well, it IS F21. They are scatter brained with their layout. Anyways, speaking of comedians bombing, we were at one and he was trying to interact with us and made some un-funny comment about Hong Kong since my hubs said he was from there. I think we were all confused. Then he said my bro-in-law must have an Asian fetish because he was sitting with my sister, my hubs, and me...awkward...but the main act was funny :D

  13. Comedy shows to me are dependent on someone next to me getting a case of the giggles. I can't really get into it without some contagious laughter.
