Skippy Says: That's What Friends Are For (OOTD)

So you remember my BFF Alisa I told you about? Well, one thing I didn't tell you was that Alisa and I like to eat together. A lot. Oh wait, I did. But not the extent of it. You see, in high school, Alisa and I were hungry little monsters. We would regularly eat the packed lunches our parents made for us, and then head down to the cafeteria to wash them down with a piece of pizza or bag of chips. What? We were growing girls. Maybe not vertically growing, but growing nonetheless. One particularly hungry afternoon, we got home from school and ordered a large pizza. And then we ate it all while watching MTV's Dismissed. Can I get a yeah yeah from someone else who watched that deliciously trashy show? Please? Anywho, knowing Alisa's mom was going to be home to feed us dinner in about an hour, and knowing she'd be livid that we already ate, we quickly got rid of the pizza box in a neighbor's trash and then returned home only to eat a second dinner about an hour later. It was an impressive feat. Alisa, I hope you mama doesn't read this blog or we'll have some splainin' to do.

You shouldn't be surprised, then, to hear that our date a few weekends ago started out with some brunch. After our bellies were nice and full, we headed over the the San Francisco ThreadShow, which is a showcase of emerging local designers and artists. It was the funnest, girliest day we've had in a while. And productive too-- I managed to add a few pieces to my pathetically small jewelry collection.

  4. I could never eat two meals one after the other and my mom would always figure out that I had eaten out :P

    Love the striped sweater - it is such a great colour :)

  5. Haha, that is awesome! I would do the same thing as a kid - I ate SO much and my mom would get pissed off so I'd have to hide wrappers in weird places.

    You look so cute and this sounds like such a fun day!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thanks Kim! Yeah, I never really had a fast metabolism, but it's way slowed down recently. I'm trying to behave a little better nowadays :)

  20. Ha, I've never been a big eater... HALF a pizza that's crazy talk girl. I was like a hummingbird at that age and got 90% of my calories from sugar.
    This scarf is gorgeous, love it with the blazer.

  25. OMG! Dismissed was hilarious. Loved it. And Daria. My dark, twisty young soul identified with her cynicism.

    As always, you look sooooo cute!

  30. Love the striped sweater with the pin-striped blazer. And the coral with navy is oh so chic. Those earrings are really fancy. Love them.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh Skippy I love your whole outfit today. The blazer and stripes go so well together and I love the way you tied your scarf. So sassy!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Cute outfit! I love that shade of lipstick/lipgloss! What shade is it? (:

  33. Aww, I love the combination of greys in this outfit, that cardigan is too cute and I love with the blazer and scarf. Great pick of earrings at the show, and lipstick color too. I think you need to do a tutorial for your hair and how it always looks fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks Lauren! I definitely will :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. OMG I loved Daria too. But that was legitimately good. Dismissed was jsut good crap. And it makes me so happy you liked it :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow, thanks so much Tracy! Fancy, huh? I like the sound of that :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks! It's actually the elf brand lipgloss from, oh I don't know, at least 5 years ago. And I just looked on the tube and there's no name on it :( Either it never had one, or it wore off over the years. Sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow, thanks so much Cara! I literally don't know the first thing about styling hair. I either wear it all down (and do nothing) or put it up in a messy-ish bun like above :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I like how you mixed a structured blazer with a casual outfit, looks really chic. The striped top has a great color. I like the matching scarf and boots. You look fabulous! Your story about being growing girls makes me smile. Being able to eat heartily and still keep a slim figure is every girl's dream!

  40. Thanks so much Mongs! Rest assured I do not eat quite that heartily nowadays :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great booties! Like the pleating and it looks like they have two zippers. :)
    I think this is such a masterful mixing of patterns and lovely details. And that blazer -- what an excellent eBay find. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. that sounds like a fun day!
    I love those booties, the way the suede is layered with the zippers makes them so unique!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks so much Carrie! And yes, there are 2 zippers- one on the side and one on the back :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Aw, thanks so much Lydia! It was definitely a fun day :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Inna, I am so incredibly jealous of the CA weather! Coats are now required and Alisa sounds fabulous! I am so glad to read these stories about you and her, and hungry little monsters? Honey....where on earth do you put it all???

    ReplyDelete
  46. It's actually getting pretty cold here, at least for CA. A blazer over a cardigan is some pretty serious layering :)
    And I definitely eat less now than I did back then...I'm still a pretty big eater though! I'll tell you wear I put it- in my highs and big badunkadunk. Oh yes girl, I do. Working out about 5 times a week helps a little though :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh wow, i haven't thought about "dismissed" for literally YEARS.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Lol, me too, until I remembered that fateful afternoon :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. You two are like peas in a pod! Glad you had a great time and you look amazing! I'm loving the poses and the business men walking by. :D
