No joke

I'm sorry I don't have a great April Fools post for you today like I did last year*. I actually had been thinking about what I could do for a while, and everything just seemed so contrived and obvious, like doing a post with all really expensive designer items, or an outfit post in head to toe garish thrifted 80's clothes, or an announcement that from now on instead of being a fashion blog, I'm just going to post photos of kittens.
I really, really wish I had a kitten.

Though I have been enjoying the April Fool's jokes others have done; Google, YouTube, and my very most favorite, Hulu. They captured the essence of the 1996 webpage perfectly. I was so nostalgic for low-res images, the sound of dial up, and Netscape Navigator! I did absolutely watch that episode of Sliders too. It was my favorite show in '96, and the sight of young Jerry O'Connell with that spectacular hair still makes my heart go pitter-pat.
This picture has been on my refrigerator since 1996. Who'd want to throw away that face?

Perhaps I can just say, I'm not Suze, April Fools!

If you follow Miss Vinyl Ahoy, then you know this is what she was wearing yesterday, and she actually swiped it off Linley; so maybe you can wear it next and we can create the blogger chain of breton stripes, wide leg jeans, and green cardigans.

I'm going to ransack my closet tonight and try to find wide leg jeans, breton stripes, and a green cardigan...and if you ever do decide to post a kitten photo a day, I will so be on board for that.

It would be so cool if we could send our outfits around for each other to wear... wouldn't that be funny! It would be the like "Traveling Pants" - only it would be an entire outfit! LOL. Happy April Fools Day!

Sherry Jarwin said...

Sorry! I have no idea why my comment posted so many times! YIKES! :(

DaniellaBella said...

I dig how you all wore similar things but put your own touches on it... lovely! I'm terrible at April Fool's. I'm apparently gullible and unimaginative...

Closet Fashionista said...

Love the outfit! I was lame and didn't do a fool either, haha. But I love the kitty photos:)

I was thinking about wearing a similar outfit when I saw Suze's post. Now that I see that you also wore your version of this outfit, I think I will be wearing mine next week!

haha, LOVE that you wanna start an outfit chain. If I wasn't doing a remix, I would try it out (though I don't think I have a green cardi).

This is a very cute outfit!

*sigh* that picture of Jerry always takes my breath away, and that hair is puuurfect. lol. stripes, wide legs and green cardigan? i'm already thinking about how to pull it off. lol.for April fool's, my roomie fell down and couldn't get up. as she's crying i'm panicking and trying to get her up then she says "hey, april fool". that was not funny to me at all. lol

Jess said...

Love the kitten pictures. My cat actually plays with my husband's shoes all the time - it's hilarious! Happy April Fool's :)

La Historiadora de Moda said...

Kitties rock! I would be so disappointed if you had made such promises and then they had turned out to be a cruel April Fools' trick.

Another fan of the wide legged + breton stripes combo here!

Kavery said...

That is Jerry O'Connell? Woo hoo, girl no wonder you still have that photo around.

TrophyBoutique said...

This outfit is ridiculously awesomely adorable! I love the turquoise necklace with the green top, it's kind of unexpected. And April Fools jokes are hard to pull off...it's cool.


Also I have a new blog link now! I hope you like it....

lilacpurplesky said...

The cat is great! I had one like that too :)

I am in love with your trousers, it looks like they were made for you!

Jessica said...

If you went all kittens, I'd still read. How adorable! ;-)

And will you always wear this outfit? Seriously. It's perfection. Lime green looks phenomenal with navy.

Eli said...

Im not crazy about april fools at all! glad no one did anything this year! The Hulu dial up thing really didmake me laugh though!

silvergirl said...

Love that you have had that photo for so long!

I really like how you mixed your colors today. The necklace especially with the navy stripe and mint of the sweater.
Why did wide leg jeans go out of style for so long??? I love them

Alex Elizabeth said...

I would totally do the blogger chain... except I don't have Breton stripes, wide leg jeans, or a green cardigan.
This could be a problem. I might be shopping again tomorrow..
