One of the lovely ushers at the Tank stopped me before Saturday’s game and said:

“You always have a different look! The day you had heels on and looked like a (sassy) harlequin! Today you look cute and comfy. I love that you always have a different look. Keep me guessing!”

Now, who am I to let her down after such a flattering comment?!

Saturday’s dress-du-jour was definitely a little more on the low maintenance side–especially given the unnecessary upheaval I went through to look presentable at the previous tilt. It was also a matinee game–we don’t have too many 1 pm puck drops here in the South Bay–which meant I was going to be hopping on the train early in the morning to get to the Tank on time.


Went with the black-and-white striped H&M tunic dress, Bebe black leather jacket, opaque black tights and black moto boots. To keep extra warm, I threw on this gi-huge-ic orange sarong that doubles as a gauzy scarf, to cut into the monochrome color palette of the rest of the ensemble.

Even my purse matched!


FASH TIP: I’ve written before that a good purse is a game day must. This new addition to my much-to-large artillery of handbags, leather Kenneth Cole Reaction square tote, is no exception. It’s great quality, and is big enough to fit all my game day/night knick-knacks into–see, I could carry my iPad and notepad in there if I needed to!

Now, if only there was a Bloody Mary bar up here in the rafters during early day games…


Until the next puck drops,
