As if the first four games of the Sharks-Kings series weren’t physically charged enough, Game 5 was set to be the nastiest rumble of them all.

Hard hits in the latter part of Game 4 down in LA carried some bitter feelings in an already-tense series between two teams that really don’t like each other. It was a vibe that you could feel throughout the Tank as you entered Saturday afternoon before anyone else had arrived.

And while I’m prone to dress for such an occasion, I wasn’t feeling particularly ready to “drop my gloves” come time to pick out my game night ensemble.

Even with all that anger and intensity in the air, I was in a particularly flirty mood and chose an outfit rather romantical.

(Yes, I made up that word. Just roll with me here.)


I decided that a big game called for some new fishnets. And this floral pair fit the bill.

Plus, I snagged them from the mall for four bucks. Score!

Since this was still a work night, I paired them with a soft, blouse-y blush shift dress to keep from looking too vampy. Add black ballet flats, chunky scarf and a leather jacket, and I was good to go.

Well, almost.


…Okay so maybe some of that aggressive spirit from Game 5 wore off on me.

I have quite a bit of fun with my jewelry, and decided that Saturday night needed to be a “skulls” night. Simple sterling silver skulls rings, and one colored sugar skull bracelet.

Now, if I could only get my hair to behave today…

Until the next puck drops,
