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.

  • basiccravings

    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.

  • L

    i love this post.
    for my sixteenth, i think i just watched a movie with my friends. i love the hot pink skirt, you really do look great in that color. the poodle is hilarious. but really i do hope he finds its owner.


  • Keira

    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.

  • katie

    You never fail to crack me up!!

    And there's the movies "28 Days" and "28 Days Later." You could use those!

  • Mj.

    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.

  • Kelly

    Oh my, I needed to laugh, and I actually laughed to tears just now. Thanks!

  • Lianne

    i love your entire outfit!!

    haha you're right, that dog has got some diamond eyes

  • What Would a Nerd Wear

    YOUR birthday is in october? MY birthday is in october!!

    it's a sign. a sign that one day my remixing skills can catch up to yours.

  • riotersbloc

    This is the epitome of cuteness.

  • Sydney — PetiteGorgeous

    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.

  • tomorrowneverknowsfashion

    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.


  • Casey Turner

    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!!

  • Melanie

  • Elle Sees

    lol the poodle made me laugh!
    and this kinda reminds me of Mad Men. Maybe it's because my Tylenol PM is kicking in?
    And little known fact–I was at one of the Sweet Sixteen bdays for a certain celeb's son. but i'm nowhere in the episode(well not a good shot or anything)! argh.

  • eleanor

  • jayde

  • Chloe, Butterfly Cupcakes

    That lace top is so pretty and so cute and girly when paired with the pink skirt. Matches the 'sweet sixteen' heading.

  • Breenuh

    I'm probably going to have nightmares about Dog White Poodle.

    I'm loving this outfit though! It's impressive that you're creating such cute combos with so few items :.)

  • Sal

    I'm not surprised to learn that Satan owns a white poodle. It's just too perfect.

    That lace top is SUCH fun.

  • Anonymous

    oooh, i saw that poodle out last night eating the souls of small children. i knew i should have done something. damnit.

  • FashioNatalie

    This post makes me crack up! But I have to say I LOVE your skirt and the outfit totally matches the title.I would have killed to wear that outfit for my Sweet Sixteen, which also consisted of something so special, I can't even remember it anymore! Super cute. I also have an obsession with hot pink and black!

  • annie
