A die hard with a new dress

Dress:Forever 21 (of course) | Sandals: Forever 21 (of course) | Belt:Thrifted | Jewelry: Forever 21 (of course)

Okay, I can't even concentrate on this post right now because my team lost last night.  What team? MY TEAM...the San Antonio Spurs.  Those who know me well, know that I am a DIE HARD.  I even have a pink Spurs truckers' hat that I bought at a game years ago.  You remember when those were cool?  Well, it's now my rally cap and I wear it for every game...when I am at home watching of course.  No public appearances.  Anyway, MY TEAM is in the Western Conference Finals and the series was tied 2-2 until game five and we FREAKIN' lost by three points. It was a nail biter until the very last seconds.  As I am typing this, my adrenaline is still PUMPING.  Can you tell by all the CAPS?!?  I am one of those fans that screams at the TV as if MY TEAM can hear exactly what I am telling them to do.  Ross and I were so loud that my little Spurs children yelled from their bedrooms for us to be quiet.  Yes, we ARE those fans.

So, I can probably bank on most of you not giving two "sha-doobies" about the Spurs or basketball for that matter; that's why I posted this cute maxi, hi-lo dress I recently scored (no pun intended). These pictures were obviously taken before Game 5, hence the smile.  It kind of gives off the Bohemian-chic vibe.  What do you think?  I am still deciding if it's REALLY me or if I should take it back and get something more practical.   I am REALLY trying to buy more staple pieces these days, you know, items I can remix. Thoughts? Opinions? I am easily influenced. 

Anywho, sorry for the rant.  That's what friends are for right...to console one another during heartache.  Please tell me that I am NOT the only one out there that get's this worked about about a game?  I know there has to be more of us die hards out there.  If so, what team gets you fired up?

I will leave you with one last picture. I would be most grateful if you could send some good "ju-ju" our way for the Wednesday night game!  Please and thank you!


Cheers to the ritualistic chant, "GO SPURS GO!!"

Ok your post just made me SO happy. Alright, I'm from Boston so clearly I am a Celtics fan all the way... but for some reason my mom's favorite team is the Spurs. She just loves them. We all scream at the tv. Hoping for a Spurs/Celtics showdown!!

You look fab in that dress, I think it's very you. :)

Oh my goodness, Shanna. I could feel your passion for the Spurs radiating out of my computer screen as I read that. You definitely aren't kidding about being die hard! Good luck to YOUR TEAM tomorrow night :) And as always, you look completely adorable in your dress!

xoxo, me

Meghan @ More from Meg said...

My hubby and I were going for the Spurs too! So sad! But on a happier note - you look adorable!

Katie @ My Darling Days said...

Sorry for your loss, I felt the same why when the Packers lost in the playoffs this year. Yup, still not over it. Anyways... KEEP THE DRESS! You look like a feathery goddess :)

Tara St said...

Well I can't really send good vibes your way because the NJ Devils are about to lose the Stanley Cup in the next few days. So, my support lately hasn't resulted in any wins.
I think this dress is a keeper. You can turn it into a staple. Pair it with a cardigan, or a blazer...wear a shirt over it and turn it into a skirt. There are so many ways to wear it.

i like the spurs cause i like danny green (go heels!) i'm sorry for your loss. you look adorable though if it's any consolation!

Ashley K said...

It's always hard when your team loses. I like hockey myself, the Red Wings to be specific. My dad is always the one who yells at the TV ;) As for the dress I really like it the feathers are different you don't see that pattern much. Who needs practical when you can have a whimsical fun pattern :)

Amy Shaughnessy said...

You look so cute. Sooooo I probably shouldn't tell you that I wasn't sure what kind of sport the Spurs play...Don't hate me. I don't follow sports at all so I don't know what teams go with what sports. Except for the LSU tigers because I can't escape it here...

Aww, so sorry they lost :( I don't really watch sports much...I probably married the one guy that doesn't care about sports (it's all about motorcycles instead).

That maxi looks fabulous on you, Shanna! I think you should keep it if you think it's something you wear again next season.
