Never Say Neverrrr

Fresh on (and no not off because it's not entirely gone) the heels of Head Cold 2011 more recently referred to as Bieber Fever, the Chef talked me into going out on Friday afternoon for some fresh air.  After being cooped up for a week I was relieved to be in the warm sun. Next thing I knew what was supposed to be a late lunch turned into me standing in line for an impromptu viewing of Black Swan.  I can't lie:  seeing some chick rip the skin off her hands in order to don the noir tutu was not high on my list of priorities (don't judge).  So as we walked away I mumbled, "Gee I kinda wanted to see Justin Bieber's movie.  I bet it's pretty good...".  To my shock the Chef stopped, spun on his heel and exchanged the tickets.  True love.

Cue the crazy pills because I really do have Bieber Fever now.  No jokes.



There was only one person under 25 in an almost full theatre, and we sat in front of the team who made the trailers for his movie...all decked out in purple 3D glasses.  Yes, I'm 14 again (and couldn't be happier) - and was so buzzed out off the movie that I almost forgot I was sick - so on Saturday I ventured outside yet again for a little more Vitamin D down at the docks.


Melinda Maria - Mademoiselle Pod Ring
It only seemed right to don something with at least a little purple in it.
I mean Justin wears it...good grief I've lost it.
Except I think my 5 year old niece is going to think I'm pretty cool.
Close-up on the Super High Hasbeens - you will never regret.  
I was stopped 3x on Saturday afternoon alone.  Totally comfortable, cute staple.
Speaking of never regretting (and never saying neverrrrr) this was my first Tucker piece and
it remains a favorite.  The vibrant color and flow of the blouse make it
a total go-to.  As long as I'm wearing it I'm sure I'll stay One Less Lonely Girl.
 Long live the Chef (in my sunnnies ha!)...who clearly knew that only Bieber Fever could mend a fever?
Ba-by, ba-by, ba-by oooooooooooh!  Oops wrong song.

I'll be back tomorrow with more tales because shortly after this I went to fill up on dark chocolate at See's (any excuse seeing as Jillian's on hiatus due to fever and it is Valentine's Day weekend mmmkay?) and some crazy woman felt the need to haul me over mid-mall to school me on the finer points of "skinny denim's out ya know.  It's really all about a wide leg these days."  Excuse me eyeliner sister?  Can't you see I have Bieber Fever and don't really care?? I about fell over in my tracks.  Can you imagine if I'd been wearing my whites?

Before I go, and I mean this sincerely, you should totally go see Bieber's movie.  He can dance and sing - we're talking natural ability - and is 16, almost 17, year old charming.  The story is told documentary style and is an incredibly inspiring journey about a small town Canadian kid from humble beginnings.  You may not know this if you're a newer follower, but I grew up in a small town on the Canadian prairies, so to see how far this young person has come is remarkable.  At the risk of sounding like a swoony cuckoo bird, I'm just going to admit it:  I've become a Belieber.

Just in time for Valentine's Day....One Less Lonely Girl

this free bird said...

okay lisa? i'm so here with you. tonight the chef says "would you date justin bieber if he got a crush on you?" (as he laughs maniacally) i was like, "what on EARTH is wrong w/you?!?" OF COURSE I WOULD.

Great to hear you feel better!

annelise said...

Precocious little shit. Beiber, not you.

Hope you kick this fever's arse! I love all of your Tucker pieces, they're so pretty.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Umm after watching that first video, I am hooked. He is totally a cutie! But that's all I say for now because i am not giving into bieber fever just yet.

Lady you have the coolest Tucker blouses!

Debby said...

Oh, how cute is the chef bringing you to see the Bieber movie? Love the blouse and what nerve that lady had to comment on your jeans.... did you tell her you had a fashion blog? So who's the expert now? xo

Diana Mieczan said...

I love your top, sweetie and I so need some vitamin D too..Send some of that sunshine over, please:)))
Happy Valentine's day, sweetie

Rissy said...

seriously what kind of crazy bia approaches someone to tell them their clothes aren't in style. I hope you have her some serious stink eye. If you didn't, i'll find her and do it.

I kinda want your outfit and your Justin Bieber experiences... I need to see that movie! I want to adopt him.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

crazy pills! too funny.

Danielle (elleinadspir) said...

Love that pic of chef, and that Tucker blouse! While I respect and even 'get' your fever, I don't share it. But you enjoy it! Happy Valentines Day Carrie!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

hahah, I don't have Bieber fever but I certainly DON'T hate him or anyhting like that, I am interested in seeing this movie- it just might have to wait until DVD, we'll see!!! And who was schooling you on wide legs? That part confused me but either way, the skinnies are awesome on you!! And you always rock the ponytail so well.

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

Happy V-Day, lady! If Bieber can break your fever, more power to it!

Anna Jane said...

i was a belieber as soon as i heard the song 'one time.' even eric likes that song!

glad you're feeling better, c :)

Leah said...

ahha I love that us 'older' women are on the Bieber bandwagon. He's such a cutie. I love that floral top on you with the cargo's! Hope you're feeling better.

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

hehehe. did you see the superbowl ad "what's a bieber?" :P now my husband says that everytime he sees a photo of him.

hope you're feeling better!

Courtney Erin said...

I love your floral top - it looks so blousey and comfy! And I can't believe some whack-a-doo lectured you on skinny vs. wide leg pants, that's too funny.

Happy Valentine's!!

XOXO

Happy Vday!

jeanette from everton terrace said...

A man that will go to a Bieber movie with you is sooo a keeper :) I think I'm too old to be a Belieber - hadn't even heard of that before.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

I looked at the hubs last night and said, "I think I've caught the fever in a major way." That was followed by silence and the loudest laugh everrr. Ha! I'm hopping in the train girl...love it!

Alicia said...

Carrie I'm not going to lie, after last night's performance I now want to see the movie as well!

Josie said...

I can't believe he exchanged your tickets. Dying. Hold on to that one, Carrie -- even I wouldn't go see that with you. And re: the crazy wide-leg lady, as much as I adore the wide-legs right now, I have to say skinny jeans aren't going anywhere. Plus, when you look as good as you do in them, Carrie, there's hardly reason to stop wearing them... Adoring this look!

Happy Valentine's Day, doll! Hoping you and the Chef have a fabulous one -- full of dark chocolate and flourless tortes.

Hope you have a good chocolate day! Your photos are great and you don't look sick at all- are you faking it!?

ryan said...

Aw I think it's so cute that you like Justin Bieber! Cute shoes, and happy valentine's day to you

Dancing Branflake said...

How fun! Sounds like a wonderful weekend and you look fabulous!

Kimbirdy said...

i feel so out of the loop when people talk about this kid. i've never ever heard him sing, and i didn't even know he had a movie. a friend of mine took his 11 year old daughter to one of his concerts and couldn't hear for a week afterward from the constant screaming of little girls around him. i just can't for the life of me figure out why people like him. and immediately after thinking that, i have flashbacks to my mother saying the same thing when i was a little girl. oh no! it's happened!! must do something rebellious stat!

hope you are feeling better now!

Claire Kiefer said...

I'm so amused by this perfectly-written post. But first, I love that top a TON. It's perfect! As for Bieber . . . well, I haven't caught the fever yet. But I'm not saying it couldn't happen . . . perhaps . . . one day. When I stop being annoyed by his ridiculously swooped hair.

Happy Valentine's Day--so glad you're feeling better. xo.

Taylor said...

Justin Beiber IS pretty cute. I wonder if he is nice in real life, you know?

PS. LOVELY SHOES!!! I am obsessed with wooden heels lately, I love how they "clunk" when you walk...I used to have the best pair of clogs but I don't know where they are :(

Marcie said...

OK, you just sold me on this movie!! What a cute kid and an inspirational story! Thanks for the reminder and push to go see it, Carrie!

Higgenbottom said...

absolutely hilarious! your use of beiber puns was cracking me up! i can't believe that strange lady had the nerve to tell you skinny jeans are out! is this high school? ps, i'm so out of touch with pop culture, i thought that beiber movie was a joke. i may have to look into this now to see what it's about

Kara said...

Oh man, I lol'd so hard at your comment on my valley fever post the other day about how you had Bieber fever...little did I know you actually meant it! Not gonna lie, I'm charmed by that kid too. I thought he was precious at the Grammys. Might have to convince the fiance to see that with me...

Valerie said...

WHAT is wrong with people these days?? A woman ACTUALLY stopped you in the mall to scold you about your skinny denim? Who does that? I'm horrified. And besides, skinnies aren't OUT are they? I'm all about the wide leg, but I'm also convincing myself that I can still wear the skinny jeans too and just mix it up.

I'm dying over your Bieber fever, Carrie! For the longest time I thought his name was Justin Beaver. I just realized he sang that "Baby, baby, baby ohhhhhh" song and I actually totally like it! I find myself singing along and pulling out my dance moves when it comes on the radio. So give me a few weeks and maybe I'll have the fever too. Glad you're starting to feel better! LET ME KNOW if you pee your pants tonight. ;) Can't wait to hear what he has up his sleeve.

That Tucker top is gorgeous! And I'm going to see Justin Bieber's movie this weekend actually. I'm so glad I'm not the only one (who has outgrown a training bra) who's going to see it.

Kathryn {Sweet Tea and Champagne} said...

Yes, I've been wanting to see this movie!! Just downloaded his song yesterday and I have to admit it's been on repeat. Hope you're feeling better! xo

Kimbirdy said...

OH! okay, now i get it. thanks for taking the time to explain it to me. i had no idea about his life story. that is pretty cool. all i know is he was hilarious on SNL with the church lady. :)

Rachel from Love a la Mode said...

Oh Chef sounds fantastic! My boyfriend told me to go with my roommates haha. Oh well. I didn't like Black Swan so don't feel like you missed out... I do appreciate the Bieber reference in your post title too :)
Bisous,

I'm not going to say anything about the Bieber fever but I am goign to say something about those clogs. They are PERFECT.

Happy Valentine's Day, Carrie!

xo,

this free bird said...

Meagan! Justin Bieber's movie is close to, if not AS GOOD as the clogs...and you know how I do love the clogs! Super inspiring message that anything can happen if you work hard at what you're good at :)

Meghan said...

wow - that is true love. I don't think I would do that for my best friend! ;) Glad you enjoyed it.

Love your top too! Happy Valentine's Day!

Sarah said...

Glad to hear that the JB helped you get over your cold. ;)

Alleen said...

You look beautiful, darling! I will be seeing that movie this weekend with my girls. They are so excited. Happy to hear you're feeling better just in time for Valentine's Day! Hope you have a good one. xoxo

Danielle said...

Love the outfit, love the ring and may or may not secretly want to see that movie when it comes out on DVD. I DO, however -- want to see black swan.

Jess said...

LOVE that you saw Bieber Fever, LOVE that you put up a picture of the chef, and LOVE that you're feeling better! Yay!

Happy Valentines Day!

cryskay said...

i love your tucker blouse. the print is so beautiful. xo

LyddieGal said...

glad you are starting to feel better, and I love your skinny jeans with the hasbeens. gorgeous.

I did go see black swan. I was not in love.

la petite coquine said...

You have me ROLLING on the floor with laughter. What would I do without my daily dose of you?! So glad you're feeling better, and relieved that someone else (and I see Lyddie is also in our camp) did not particularly enjoy Black Swan...

Happy Valentine's Day!

xo, Lena

Freelance Shop-A-Holic said...

I want to see this. Allegedly.
Also no swear I wore this outfit last week but didn't get pics. Now I have to recreate it it to copy you. Allegedly

Ps
My iPhone is a dumbass
That is all

Kavery said...

I could just about listen to a song or two but an entire movie - uh, I'll pass. But if it cured your fever it was worth it , no?

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I hope you're feeling better - you poor thing! Nobody else looks as fashionable as you do when they are sick, though. Rock it out, girl!

I may not know his songs, except that bay-bay, bay-bay, bay-bay, ooooooh song lol BUT you gotta admit he has talent.

And my big ass can't pull off wide leddged pants so I am stickin' with my skinnies ;)

Karena said...

Wow You look great and plus you have such a great guy!!

Ashleigh said...

Hold up, did someone really stop you in the mall and tell you skinnies were out?? I was just having the skinny vs. wide convo with a friend, althought I do think the wide trend will pick up, skinnies aren't going anywhere - we like showing off our shoes too much!

Karoline Kalvø said...

Love your blog. Now following. Hope you'll follow me back.

Check out my blog if you've got time and feel like it. It would mean a lot. I've just started.

I looove your blouse! So pretty.

Vintage is for Lovers said...

I love you Carrie! You crack me up! But I have to admit (shh) I have Bieber fever too. (And after the performance on the Emmy's, I am lovin' some Usher too!) You look great! Happy to hear you are feeling better! xo Samantha

Higgenbottom said...

thanks for the review! i will definitely check the movie out! i love easy-to-watch movies with sweet messages. i'ma check out gnomeo and juliet also. hopefully since it's a kid's movie, they'll pass over the double suicide thing and that should be fun to watch too!

and yeah, i agree, papa joe simpson makes me squirm when he speaks *shudder*

Stacey said...

The chef is definitely a keeper! I doubt my hubby would be so generous(well maybe if i were sick:-)). Love the look of your outfit and where the pics were taken too. I definitely agree that Bieber is quite a talented young fellow:-)

Style, She Wrote said...

I've actually been wanting to see that movie but have been too embarrassed to head over to the theater. You have inspired me to go!! xo style, she wrote

drollgirl said...

your man did that for you?!?! he is insane. or he is in love! the beiber movie. BARF. i think i'd die if i had to watch it. lol. but then again, i would be first in line to see heavy metal parking lot if it was ever screened around here, and i am sure most would BARF at the prospect of seeing THAT movie. lol!

this free bird said...

oh hell yes he did! and bieber, believe it or not, totally delivered. maybe it was the cocktails, maybe it was the semi-delirious almost post flu state, or perhaps a combo of the two...but i left there wanting to whip my hair into a haircut like his. wth??

the kid's got MOVES! no jokes! and did you see him on conan last night?? okay i'm gonna stop now. yikes

Daisy said...

I can't stop commenting on all the posts I missed. Black Swan freaked me the F out. I totally should have seen this but I guarantee Adam wouldn't have exchanged tickets like chef! ahahah. You make me want to be a Belieber.
