What to wear to a movie premiere?!

As many of you already know, I was able to take part part in the making of Drew Barrymore's directorial debut WHIP-IT last summer, filmed primarily right here in the Mitten State! Just yesterday, by sheer luck, I was able to get tickets to the Michigan premiere going on tonight! I'm so excited, I feel like an anxiety monster. Drew Barrymore will be there and I can't wait to see the end result of everything that went into making this movie!

Anyway, I wanted your opinions about WHAT TO WEAR!

Remember that part in the movie HEATHERS where one of the Heathers tells Veronica that she "couldn't accessorize for shit"? That's how I am. :(

My outfit will be one of these three, I've decided. Just need to narrow it down to one.

1. I like that this outfit has the t-shirt with the Whip-it logo on it, and my friend Karen gave me the idea to go with something mini. Does the belt go with the outfit, though?

2. This is the dress I had initially picked but do you think it's too long? Is it not "fun" enough? I love the back of the dress and also feel like it is definitely the most elegant of the three outfits! The shape and color of the dress is nice too. Paired it with long pretty dangling earrings. Thoughts?

3. This I felt was probably the most FUN outfit out of the three. I have to admit, I love pink and black together SO much. Does the tiny blazer jacket looks ok with the dress though? Aagghh, I'm so bad at this! Also, how does the necklace look with the outfit?

I'm not allowed to take pics tonight of course, but I'm hoping *fingers crossed* to attend some after parties! Also, I have a surprise to show you Drew fans later.
I think you'll love it. She's the coolest. :)

Thanks in advance for your advice with the outfits! I'll tell you what I ended up wearing later.

Novelty Print of the Day -- MERMAIDS 70's Men's Disco Shirt

I realized I rarely post men's clothing for the novelty print of the day. However, I just found this MERMAID PRINT Disco shirt on Etsy recently and thought it was fun! I love the collar and shine of the shirt, too. Reminds me of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

She hit pause to say. . .

We're all grown up, but we still like to play and daydream . . .

One of my very favorite photographers on Etsy, Matt Schwartz of She Hit Pause Studios was recently featured in Nylon Magazine.

I fell in love with his photos the moment I first saw them. The colors of these images make them seem like forgotten memories sometime between leaving girlhood and becoming a woman.

Ever get that feeling that you don't want to grow up? I have it almost daily.
