my mourning jacket


First, If you haven't been to see Kristen Wiig's Bridesmaids you need to stop reading...punch yourself in the face, and then get yourself to a theater. It is seriously one of the most endearing and brilliant comedies i've seen in a while. If you live in AZ and you have no friends (probably cause you still haven't seen this movie) hit me up and i will personally drag you there myself. 


Second, i need to get me a cropped blazer and fast. Its ubiquitous style proves to be the best thing to chicks with no money since sliced bread. If you've seen this movie you know what i mean. She wears one with nearly every outfit and kills it every time. Let me tell you how totally fun its been to find one that is less than $100 bucks now that its 100+ degrees (I am scrambling to build a compact wardrobe for an upcoming secret trip...more on that later).


Theory has one for $400...bite me. Jcrew has one on SALE for $188 sooooo...that's out. Gap has one for $100...a little warmer but still no go. H&M apparently used to have them...damn you! And DI only had ones that needed to be drastically altered to not make me look like a cast member from Full House, and i don't have those skills or time. The search continues....dun dun dunnn.

Okay! Let's go see it!! :) I've been dying to see it ever since I saw the trailer! And if you need a blazer, I bought one from Gap two years ago that you could totally borrow for your trip! I doubt I'll have any use for it in AZ anytime soon!

Oh my stars that movie was a blessing to my abs, I laughed so much It counted as a work out that day. And as for the jacket... I got one of mine at target and the other at a vintage thrift store. Maybe I was lucky...or maybe there is more options in California because our weather doesnt scream DEATH! lol.

i have a blazy from H&M that was cheap and i bought it 2 years ago and wear it a lot. maybe target has some? forever 21? urban outfitters? i went to see this movie saturday and literally every seat was taken when we got there. what?
so we saw x men instead, but at least it had james macavoy. but i am dying to see bridemaids.

p.s. kristen wiig graduated from brighton high school. the very one my children will attend that is two blocks from here. then she went to arizona state, sooo...we're both practically related to her.

i nearly had a baby in that movie my uterus contracted with laughter so much.

wanna know a secret i am only telling you because you don't live in utah?

go to the boys section of DI - they're blazers fit AMAZING.

i have also been noticing how classy blazers are. i found this one (http://bit.ly/lhlDn3) at f21 and it's starting to be a staple item of my closet. i love wearing it with black crop pants! so lovely. f21 has a pretty decent collection of blazers that are all under $100. :)

Girl, go to Urban Outfitters! Half of Kristen's wardrobe in the movie was from there (like both of the outfits in these pictures are dress and blazer Urban). I felt so lame recognizing them all, but I guess thats what I get for working there!

teamBoo said...

Holy moly...Urban, Target, Forever 21....doi!! I am so rusty at shopping can you tell? My neighbor challenged me to a year long spending freeze and it made me laugh. I told her I was already winning by like 18 months!

Emily-freak! i looked in every section BUT the boy section. good tip.

Kelly-you are basically famous with those connects. Frenching James MaCavoy is a close second to being best friends with Kristen Wiig. but maybe not in goat boy Narnia costume.

Read Fam- I might take you up on that chelsea! But with my boobs and back fat i might be a little bit like a "fat girl in a little coat"?

Everyone else you rock! i can't wait to check out those links!!

SO glad someone else mentioned F21 - i was armed with links, but looks like the internet took care of it! you will be blazered in no time...

Brissa said...

this movie is at the top of my list. i think i'm going to go once school has finished sucking the life out of me. that was i will be reinfused with new life and laughter.

MamaEm said...

www.shopakira.com has a linen blazer that might be nice for AZ. I bought the cuffed blazer in the Chicago store. You'll have to let us know what you find!!!

Swirls of Happy said...

BEST MOVIE!!!! Did you find your blazer?

Renee said...

"fat girl in a little coat" is the reason your comments section is a million times funnier than anyone else's.

I want Kristen Wiig's hair, and for her to teach me how to put on makeup. Also, all of her shoes. Also Maya Rudolph's apartment. Also that cop boyfriend.
