My Super Sweet Sixteen

7.25.10eI wanted to name this post Pretty in Pink, but I figured that I better take the opportunity to use the number 16 since not all numbers have something culturally relatable to them (I’m talking to you numbers, 14, 17 and 28.)

This year marks my ten year Sweet Sixteen anniversary. (I will mourn the loss of my youth a little closer to my birthday in October.) I had the best sweet sixteen party — P. Diddy was there, I got two Range Rovers, MTV filmed it. You know, just a regular girl turning one year older at a regular party with cake, cash money and door prizes.

Just kidding. I think I went to a football game with friends for my 16th birthday. And then I took a nap and went to the DMV with my mom to get my license. And by my mom, I mean P.Diddy.

My girl Jentine of My Edit made a very important public service announcement on her blog this weekend and I feel like I need to do the same. We stumbled upon this flyer in our neighborhood:

You guys, Satan’s poodle is lost and we need to find it. It escaped from the dark side and is wondering the streets hungry, looking for souls. The picture of the dog is great, I’ll know that dog when I see it but the description however needs a little help. It just says “Dog White Poodle.” Now come on — this isn’t just any dog white poodle, this is a dog white poodle with diamond eyes. I mean just look at those beauties.
We’ve got to find this dog white poodle and fast.

    I love this outfit! I love the lace top with the fun and flirty pink skirt. Great combo!

    That whole dog white poodle thing made me laugh so hard my husband kept glancing nervously at me. He's probably wondering if I'm hearing voices.

  2. Kendi, this post cracked me up. That dog is scary and if you see it feasting on souls, don't look into it's diamond eyes.

    Oh my…

    Sometimes, when we're sleeping, our sweet puppy sits by our bed and gives us the Jedi mind trick by staring at us until we wake up to tell us he has to go out. I feel like if this Dog White Poodle did the same, I'd wake up without a soul. Poor, creepy pup.

    Aw crap, the dog white poodle part made me laugh so hard my husband made me read it out loud to him. And I couldn't do it. I could never read past the first "dog white poodle" without breaking down. You deserve an award.

  11. Do you mind sharing what exactly you're wearing under the lace top? I've the same top but it has been sitting in my closet cuz I don't know how to wear it.

  12. hahahaha that poodle.
    I hope someone finds the dog white poodle. this cracks me UP. I did not have a sweet 16, not that it really mattered to me. a birfday's a birfday and I still don't have my license 10 years after my 16th birthday… OY. Your pictures make me all warm and fuzzy inside. TMI? truth hurts/is akward.

  13. I love that whenever I'm in a foul mood, I check out KendiEveryday and can count on a pick-me-up!! Satan's dog is totally creepy!! Avoid the diamond eyes!!

    Great outfit! I went to the beach for my 16th birthday and I had a stomach virus and ended up in the emergency clinic. I'd like to have my 16th over!!
    PS. why does my word verification never show up??!! Argghhhhh!!

    and this kinda reminds me of Mad Men. Maybe it's because my Tylenol PM is kicking in?
