It has probably been mentioned before, but it is one of those defining things that deserves reiteration: I have a very serious addiction to Pinterest.

We’re talking, like, a my-day-doesn’t-start-unless-I-couple-my-first-coffee-with-a-Pinterest-rage type of addiction.

So naturally, if I need a little extra help on a game day putting my outfit together, my favorite site is my go-to guide.

Being that it’s spring, floral prints and sheer fabrics are all over the place. Great for a day at the park; not-so-great for throwing over black tights.

I found myself in an ensemble rut. I needed something cute to wear for the Sharks-Capitals game–particularly because the Sharks had the opportunity to clinch a playoff berth that night, an occasion that I decided warranted a new and fabulous frock.

Hmmmm Pinterest inspiration mixed with a playoff-caliber outfit?

After an hour scouring mall racks in my workout gear, I found the perfect match:


I found this little black-and-rose number at Forever 21, of all places. (And I say that because nothing there ever fits me, or holds my interest.)

It has cut-off sleeves, a bit of a crew neck, a modest length, and is made of a thick stretch cotton. The color scheme also makes it play well with my tights, leather jacket and moto boots.

The kicker? It was under 15 bucks. Done and done.

**FASHION EXTRA–THE BAG: I’ve preached before that taking a well-made utilitarian purse with lots of room is a good idea for game night.

This red tote is–drum roll, please–a free gift that I got when I first bought my bottle of Killer Queen by Katy Perry perfume.

It might not have pockets on the inside, but it is perfect for holding all of my game night essentials without having to squeeze anything into my computer bag.

You can always hit me up on Twitter at @ChelenaGoldman to share any of your own favorite game night looks. I’m always down to talk fashion and hockey–often at the same time!
