Remember my first post, or my only post thus far, where I openly stated that 1/4 of the time I hate getting ready on game days? October 3rd, opening night in Boston was one of those days. With a million things to do, a head cold and no drive to pull on anything more than a zip-up and yoga pants to face them all, I stared blankly into my closet.
Opening night, one of the most exciting nights of the season, and I was looking at a pile of black articles of clothing, feverishly texting friends asking if an all black ensemble was too gothic or morbid this early on. The responses came flooding in that yes, all black was a bad choice, especially if I wanted to avoid giving other members of the media the opportunity to call me “Wednesday” as many classmates had throughout the years. People still laugh at me when the “Addams Family” theme song is played on the jumbotron, Winter Adams, funny one guys.
So with the idea of an all black chic look thrown to the wind (although I may re-visit the concept later in the season), I chose a variation of the idea for opening night.
Black wide strap tank top, Forever 21, $5.90

Leopard print heels, Sears, $23.99
Camo print thin strap bracelet, Forever 21, $3.90
Black leather bag with gold studs, a gift
Media Clothing Tip: If you’re wearing heels to cover a game, pack a pair of flats in your bag. If you’re commuting in any capacity, your feet will thank you post game!
Disclaimer: I don’t go out and buy things for every game. The idea of this column is to show you what ensembles I wear on game nights, the outfits are pulled from my closet. I have a weird ability to remember where I purchased things and for roughly what cost – so prices are a guesstimate.
