These photos are so awkward that I almost didn't post them, but I decided they were too hilarious not to share. Last week I had the amazing opportunity to attend a Lakers game at the Staples Center in Downtown LA for a United Way charity event. We were treated like royalty in a personal suite complete with unlimited beer and decadent desserts! It was my first basketball game ever, so I didn't have anything to compare it to; but I know that if/when I attend another one (which I hope to do), it won't be as fun as this was. Even though we lost, it was such an intense, exciting game with a close finish!

Confused? Understandable. I've never really cared about sports and I'm not athletic by any means, but -- surprise! -- I actually like and know the game of basketball. My mom signed me up as a youngster because I was so tall compared to my peers. However, after joining cheerleading -- then doing marching band and theatre and choir, while also taking dance classes, and trying tennis for a season -- I developed other talents and priorities. Basketball fell to the wayside, and it didn't pique my interest again until just recently.

My skills clearly lie in the arts, and I don't plan on doing anything more athletic in the future than stepping on an elliptical machine, but I'm glad to have rediscovered a long-lost hobby. Football, on the other hand? Even after playing my flute at all those games in high school, I still have no idea what it's about. Anyone wanna fill me in before tomorrow? No? Okay then. Back to fashion!

  2. Looks like you had such a fun time! I don't know too much about the Lakers but you'd definitely be ready in those colors to hang out come Mardi Gras! :p

    Gold + purple is one of my favorite color combos!

  3. Suites are nice! I've only been to a few basketball games, although I'm not into it, I just love sport games in general, the fans, crowds,etc. can be fun with the right company of friends.

  6. I saw your scarf (which I love!) and it reminded me of these 2 scarves I got form Windsor...then I saw that that's where you got yours! Haha. Yes I'm not a big sports person either...I've only played tennis, and I don't understand football still. I've always wanted to play volleyball but 5'1" does not put me at an ideal height...
